Meet Adam Esser, our Regional Sales Manager, Mideast. Adam loves all ice cream, but there’s one ingredient that ruins any flavor for him. Can you guess his least favorite flavor or the ingredient that spoils it for him? (Hint: It’s a preservative used to make homemade ice cream the old-fashioned way. Sign up for our newsletter to find out Adam’s least favorite ingredient.)
Adam’s Dairy Sanitation Tip:
A Listeria Solution
A Listeria-seeking mission several years ago yielded some interesting results. In a sample size of 30 dairy plants, the following results were found.
% of positive Listeria tests by area:
47% – Coolers + Freezers
43% – Dry Storage
40% – Entrance to Processing
39% – Raw Milk Receiving
38% – Drains
36% – Processing
30% – Non-Processing Entrance
15% – Other (Hallways, etc.)
No one on the team guessed that the highest percentage of positives would be in coolers and freezers, even though they are the most overlooked areas in dairy plants.
Use our Sterilex Ultra Disinfection Cleaner Solution 1 combined with our Ultra Soft Metal Activator to tackle Listeria issues in your coolers and freezers. Check out our full line of products to treat other areas of your dairy facility.
