Dutch hygiene equipment specialist Elpress has granted sales rights to CMW for the UK horticulture sector. Elpress has been an innovator in hygiene equipment for more than thirty years. Their experience in the healthcare, dairy, meat and food processing industries with equipment designed and manufactured in-house to HACCP International certified standard can also benefit the horticulture sector, where the need for effective protection against disease transmission has never been more apparent.
Speaking about the new partnership, MD Ian Metcalfe said "Everyone is now very aware of how quickly many crop diseases (and viruses in particular) can spread. We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers high quality equipment that can be a key part of their overall hygiene strategy."
The extensive Elpress product range includes not only personal hygiene turnstiles that prevent entry into the packhouse or crop production area unless workers complete handwashing and disinfection properly, but also systems for sterilizing crates, tools and equipment that are also potential sources of disease transmission.
