Flowcrete Australia’s latest hygienic flooring breakthrough, Flowfresh Sealer, has been nominated as a finalist in the Food Safe Equipment and Materials category of the 2016 Food & Beverage Industry Awards.
This nomination identifies Flowfresh Sealer as one of the seven products that have most successfully responded to consumer demands for innovations that have helped enhance food safety over the past year.
Flowfresh Sealer represents a step forward in the field of food industry flooring, as it is the only polyurethane floor available to the Australian market that ticks the three boxes of being full-gloss, empowered by the Polygiene® antimicrobial additive and of achieving HACCP International certification.
Now in its 12th year, the Food & Beverage Industry Awards will be held at Rydges World Square, Sydney, on Friday 23rd September. Flowfresh Sealer faces stiff competition to win on the night, with the other nominees in the HACCP Australia nominated category including The Juggler café milk tap system, the sanitising eWater system and the SmartTrace Real-time Temperature Tracker.
Flowcrete Australia’s Managing Director, Sean Tinsley, said: “Being in the running for a Food & Beverage Industry Award is a testament to our commitment to creating solutions tailored to this sector’s complex and ever evolving requirements. Flowfresh Sealer is the next stage in the development of food grade flooring, as the full gloss, antimicrobial finish of this polyurethane system is ideal for meeting the practical and aesthetic flooring standards that food and beverage producers need to comply with.”
Flowcrete Australia’s unique flooring solution means that food environments no longer need to have purely functional uninspiring floors – as this colourful coating provides a bright and glossy floor as well as the durability, ease of cleaning, slip resistance and bactericidal properties required for safe and sanitary food processing.
Food grade flooring has had to continually improve over the years to comply with the criteria of authorities such as Food Standards Australia New Zealand as well as international food safety standards such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP). The entire Flowfresh range has been HACCP International certified thanks to its ability to maintain a surface that effectively minimises contamination risks.
Multiple food and beverage businesses have already embraced Flowfresh Sealer since its launch, including the new White Rabbit Brewery in Geelong, Victoria, the fresh food distribution business Chef’s Pantry and the Brisbane fresh food market Town and Country Markets.
