Tork finds 82% of food processing production managers have experienced production delays from non-compliance with hygiene protocols


Tork offers solutions specifically designed for food processing to meet and address the rigorous standards of industry governance, while providing the high productivity and efficiency demanded by production managers.

There is little room for error when it comes to hygiene in a food processing environment. The challenge of sustaining standards is significant, and Tork®, the leading global professional hygiene brand by Essity, found 54% of production managers say it is hard to motivate people working on the production line to comply with food safety and hygiene protocols.2 Additionally, 82% of food processors report experiencing production delays due to lack of hygiene compliance within the last year,3 highlighting a clear need for purpose-built solutions that encourage hygiene compliance while increasing efficiency.
“Amid heightened hygiene needs in an industry with already rigorous standards, food processing facility managers need the best possible tools to help workers sustain hygiene compliance – and ensure operational productivity,” said Jenny Turner, Marketing Director for Essity’s professional hygiene business. “Sustaining hygiene compliance to secure food safety can never be compromised. The workflow of each area must support hygiene compliance and positively influence productivity. Our best-in-class systems and services were designed with food safety in mind, and efficient loading and cleaning capabilities means staff always have access to easy-to-use hygiene solutions.”
A vast majority (97%) of facility managers say having robust, easy to maintain and well-stocked hygiene and cleaning dispensers in highly visible locations is critical for increasing hygiene compliance.4 With a robust range of products, Tork solutions can integrate into site workflows to help mitigate risks, increase operational efficiencies, and handle the pressures of a rigorous food processing environment.
