Food Industry Coats & Coveralls

The food industry has specific hygiene and safety regulations. Ensure your staff have the correct workwear for their roles. 

Understanding Food Safety Requirements

Regulations surrounding food safety and hygiene are stringent so it is important to ensure staff working in the food industry meet these standards. When choosing workwear you need to consider the risk as it differs depending on the level of food you work with: 

  • Maximum risk: Handling food that is unpackaged and ready to eat by consumers such as salads, spreads and sushi. The highest level of protection is required from employees to prevent contamination.
  • High risk: Handling food that is unpackaged but may require further cooking or processing such as raw meat.
  • Low risk: Handling of food that is difficult to effect like crisps, potatoes and coffee.

The higher risk the stricter the workwear requirements. Protective workwear for the food industry doesn’t mean protection for the employee as it does in other sectors. It is about protecting the products and the consumers who come into contact with the foodstuffs.

As a general rule, food trade workwear should:

  • Not have pockets situated above the waist. This prevents anything falling into the food.
  • Have no external pockets.
  • Have personalisation that is permanently attached to the garments such as embroidered logos, heat sealed logos.
  • Fastenings must be made form metal and securely attached. Sewn on buttons are advised against as they can easily fall off. Metal press studs can be more easily found should they detach from the garment.

Workwear rules are designed to stop anything interfering with the food produce.

Workwear Cleanliness

As you might expect food hygiene is of particular importance so workwear cleanliness needs to be taken seriously. Aside from providing uniforms we can offer laundry solutions. We are laundry specialists who have modern innovative facilities and we have developed processes to ensure garments are attended to in the most efficient manner. Our garments have product chips inside so we can track how often they are washed , the location of the item through the laundry process and note any information relating to repairs and alterations. The chips are assigned to the employees so we can return them directly to them.
