Food hygiene isn’t just something consumers expect in restaurants. Butcher’s shops and abattoirs have a duty to ensure they prepare meat in hygienic environments. Yet many are ignoring the need for hygienic wall cladding. Prosecutions have included regulation breaches over food preparation and storage areas. Filthy conditions have been noted by inspectors, who have found meat being prepared for sale in environments where walls and ceilings have not been cleaned.

“This is unacceptable,” says a spokesman for CleanClad, the UK’s market-leading brand of wall cladding. A long-time supplier of low maintenance hygiene applications to butchers and abattoirs, it is surprising how many businesses are still operating in conditions that are very difficult to properly clean. The spokesman said: “Crumbling walls, mold, pests and grime should not be a feature of the meat industry in 2019.”

Wall cladding for butcher’s shops and abattoirs

Butcher’s shops and abattoirs must pay particular attention to cleaning because of the potential for cross-contamination. In serious cases, breaches can lead to businesses being immediately closed down. CleanClad says inspectors are taking a robust approach to public safety. “They are effectively weeding out those businesses that are not playing by the rules and putting public health at risk. The cost of prosecution can be enormous, so it makes sense to take hygiene very seriously, ” said the spokesman.

“In the current climate, there really is no need for any butcher’s shops or abattoirs to be falling below standards. Our products conceal hard-to-clean surfaces and make the task of keeping on top of food hygiene easy. Wall cladding is highly beneficial in environments where surfaces have to be cleaned regularly. It is ultra-low maintenance and can be thoroughly cleaned quickly.”
