Industrial Washing & Sanitizing Systems Engineered for the Wholesale Baking Industry

Wholesale Baking

The wholesale baking industry combines tradition with innovation to provide an abundant food supply to millions of people. Wholesale bakeries sell their product in bulk to grocery stores, restaurants, and other establishments like coffee shops. These companies distribute a broad range of baked products, including bread, rolls, cakes, cookies, crackers, biscuits, bagels, muffins, pastries, and pies. Good cleaning and sanitation practices are necessary to remove allergen residues from food production equipment and prevent bacteria and foodborne illnesses. Having plant equipment that incorporates sanitary design principles and improved, effective cleaning methods for existing equipment is a key priority for this industry.

Better Engineering is a leading manufacturer of cleaning equipment for the wholesale baking industry to wash, rinse/sanitize, and dry pans, trays, molds, racks, crates, and other equipment.

Better Engineering’s sanitary line of stainless steel cleaning systems is built to the highest hygienic standards with industry-leading capabilities. Available systems include batch washers, bin and vat washers, rack washers, cabinet washers, conveyor/tunnel washers, and other custom-made solutions, all tailored to the wholesale baking industry. These highly versatile systems optimize production processes and ensure effective results for the hygienic cleaning of pans, trays, molds, racks, crates, filling equipment, and other processing equipment.

All systems feature a self-cleaning work tank that can fill and empty with each stage and an “open architecture” for complete access (there are no hidden areas). They can incorporate robotic integration, multi-lane and adjustable lane options to accommodate various part sizes, and choice of heating – steam, gas, or electric.


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

Automated cleaning and sanitizing systems ensure repeatability of the cleaning process, increase productivity, lower labor costs, restrict hazards, and prevent product cross-contamination between batches. In addition, they provide a more sustainable cleaning solution by offering savings on water and energy resources and increasing equipment lifespan.
