In order to maintain a clean and hygienic environment, it is essential that drainage elements are designed and manufactured to minimise bacteria traps.

ACO Food is designed for optimum hygiene performance, taking into account guidelines described in EN 1672, EN ISO 14159 and the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG).

EN 1672 and EN ISO 14159 are standards that set out hygiene requirements for use in food processing.

EHEDG is a consortium of food industries, public health authorities, research institutes and equipment manufacturers. Their mission is to promote hygiene through improved hygienic engineering and design relating to all aspects of food manufacture. EHEDG principles are being recognised by designers and planners worldwide, including Australia.
