Chickens at a Poultry Processing Facility

Equipment like containers and crates must be sanitized and disinfected to prevent the spread of salmonella, listeria, and other bacteria that commonly plague flocks and handled containers.

Meticulous hygienic processes and dependable levels of cleaning are vital in ensuring that poultry is processed without contaminants that could make consumers ill. Regular daily hygienic procedures and high levels of equipment sanitization are crucial for the industry to ensure optimum food safety. Evolving standards require that reusable lugs, bins, vats, trays, crates, and other handled containers are consistently washed and sanitized on a regularly scheduled basis to avoid cross-contamination, pathogens, viruses, and potential recalls.

With increasingly strict cleanliness guidelines surrounding food processing, Better Engineering’s commercial cleaning machines will bring more value to your business than ever.

Our strength is our ability to assure the highest hygienic standards even in the most demanding environments. We are here to help you solve all of your critical cleaning challenges. Our machines lower the chance of a food safety breach, lower labor costs, ensure product consistency, and raise productivity.


Get peace of mind in knowing that your items are clean and free from any hazards.

Poultry manufacturers face some of the most complex and challenging work environments in the industry. Facilities are under strict monitoring, which necessitates a rigorous hygiene program.
