Environmental monitoring: How clean is your production line?

Environmental monitoring is becoming increasingly important in the food industry. Despite new developments in food safety and production lines, outbreaks of foodborne illness remain and have a great impact on the food industry. That’s why the focus of environmental monitoring lies on prevention, meaning cleanliness of the production line. The most common test for cleanliness is that of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP hygiene monitoring systems have become the “standard” for measuring the effectiveness of cleaning efforts in the food production industry. Testing for its presence after a cleaning program has been conducted is an ideal indicator of the amount of organic residue left on a surface, which is the prime breeding ground for bacteria and other contaminants. While the ATP test, as an indicator, is a significant part of any environmental monitoring program, it is just one part of the program. Monitoring also includes pathogen screening and allergen testing.
