Khalid, Nurul Izzah and Ab. Aziz, Norashikin (2019) Challenges in cleaning for frozen food SMEs: current and suggested cleaning program. In: Konvensyen Kebangsaan Kejuruteraan Pertanian dan Makanan 2019, 21 Mac 2019, Wisma Tani, Kementerian Pertanian & Industri Asas Tani, Putrajaya. (pp. 86-90).


Cleaning can be costly and complex especially for SMEs. Food SMEs have a restricted budget and knowledge to implement an effective cleaning program. A study was conducted in a frozen food SME to investigate the current cleaning practice. Physically and microbiologically cleanliness was set as the cleaning target. Results show that the current cleaning program was unable to reach a physically clean condition. A new cleaning program was suggested for this frozen food industry. The new cleaning program was expected to help this factory to reach physically and microbiologically clean conditions. A clean environment can lead to better food product quality and appearances.
