Using hygiene monitoring to evaluate the effectiveness of your cleaning procedures is a critical aspect of an environmental monitoring program, which can help ensure the sanitary condition of your food and beverage manufacturing environment.

Water testing

As we live in a country where water is not always treated before use or new water sources are found, it is important to assess the suitability before consumption.

With microbiological testing, consumers can determine the water supply’s overall safety and identify areas where treatment or additional testing may be necessary to ensure that the water is safe to drink. It is important to note that bacteria in drinking water can cause serious health issues.
