Cleaning / Sanitizing

Maintaining a clean and sanitary processing process is an essential business practice. A clean working environment is good for workers' morale; increases plant efficiency, protection and longevity of equipment; and strengthens consumer confidence. It portrays a good image of the entire business.


Not only is it critical to earning and maintaining consumer confidence in a business's products, good hygiene also is synonymous with product quality and product consistency.

"Wine is a complex beverage whose delicate flavors can easily be lost if sufficient attention is not paid to proper cleaning and sanitation during the course of its production"

Effective cleaning is the first step to protecting the integrity, consistency, and the quality of the product. It must precede sanitization since soil deposits can serve as sources of nutrients to unwanted microbes and also shield them from the action of sanitizing agents.


Disposal of wastewater is also a matter of concern to the wine and industrial community. In selecting chemical cleaners and sanitizers, operators must consider the issue of wastewater disposal. The choices they make in the facility ultimately affect both the processing of the wastewater generated and the condition of the water when it is reapplied and reused.
