Biofilm is a protective structure formed by microorganisms on surfaces, including food processing equipment, floors, walls and floor drains in adverse environmental conditions.

Its presence in food processing plants has been one of the biggest challenges that food processors face on a regular basis. Biofilm can lead to food product contamination and shorten products’ shelf-life. Therefore, it is very important to adopt an effective biofilm-detection procedure and implement an effective sanitation program that will eliminate it from food processing equipment and environmental surfaces.

Join IDFA and the experts at AFCO for a webinar on biofilm, its presence and formation in food processing plants, and the most effective ways to rapidly detect it, and remove it from the surfaces.
