Christeyns Food Hygiene steps up support for dairy industry

The UK is the thirteenth largest milk producer in the world, with milk accounting for 16.4% of total agricultural output in the UK in 2020.* 

15.3bn litres were produced in 2020, worth £4.4 billion in market prices. Maintaining high standards of hygiene is crucial to continue the integrity of the sector and protect the income it provides for farmers and the dairy industry in general. 

In recognition of the importance hygiene plays in the success of the UK dairy industry, Christeyns Food Hygiene is a key sponsor at this year’s International Cheese & Dairy Awards. The awards, now in their 127th year, continue the celebration of cheese and dairy and bring together passionate people from all over the world in one location.  They are the oldest awards of their type in the world.  

Warrington-based Christeyns Food Hygiene is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of hygiene products, expertise and support providing a cost effective, dedicated range of detergents and disinfectants specifically formulated to meet the needs of the dairy and cheese industry. 

Over the years Christeyns Food Hygiene has developed specialist detergents to clean delicate membranes enabling them to achieve their maximum flux rates and QAC-free disinfectant products to ensure that current legislation can be successfully complied with. 

Optimisation, verification and validation of Cleaning In Place regimes is also an important part of daily cleaning where software packages such as Insite-CIP constantly monitor and verify the efficacy of the CIP regime on each and every clean.   This ensures the highest level of food safety is achieved alongside compliance with third party standards. 

“Increasing our support of the ICDA is both an honour and a privilege,” comments CFH UK technical director, Peter Littleton. “We have supported the cheese & dairy sector for over 34 years and have been involved with both the trade show and the public event, previously at Nantwich and now at the Staffordshire Showground, over all this time.  The extension of the Love Cheese Live event will reach out to an even larger audience this year, showcasing the very best this diverse sector has to offer.” 

CFH has a team of experienced and knowledgeable support personnel with decades of dairy experience available to support dairy customers with technical, hygiene and production issues. Currently working with customers such as Wyke Farms, Belton Farms, Tomlinson Milk and Muller, CFH provides support to businesses across the UK and Irelan
