intentionally added to the food and that may compromise the safety or
suitability of the food.

Food hygiene

All conditions and measures necessary to ensure the safety and suitability of
food at all stages of the food chain.

Cleaning

It is the elimination of all visible or not dirt from the place where food is
processed.

Sanitation

The act of reducing the number of microorganisms to acceptable levels on clean


surfaces.

Food safety

The guarantee that the food will not cause harm to the consumer when it is
elaborated and / or consumed according to the use to which it is destined.

It is anyone who handles directly packaged or unpackaged foods, equipment and


utensils used for food, or surfaces that come into contact with food and must
comply with the requirements of food hygiene.

Dirt

All undesirable material present in the food.

3. PRE-OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES

Before starting the activities in the Production areas, the Quality Control
personnel must carry out a prior verification of the hygienic conditions of the
facilities and equipment.

The result of this verification indicates the effectiveness of the Post-Operational


Cleaning Procedure; if the result of this verification is within the in established
parameters, the production activities are started.

In the event that the pre-operational inspection shows that the Post-Operational
Cleaning Procedure was not carried out properly, a cleaning is done on the
observed areas, repeating this operation until the work areas have the proper
cleaning conditions and sanitation to start operations.
4. OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES
Operational SSOP are executed in the production intervals.

All products and by-products present in the Processing Rooms and surrounding
areas that could get dirty during the cleaning process must be removed or
properly covered to avoid contamination.

The Operational Procedures in Hamburger Area are made before lunch and
dinner time and during the shift change. The procedure is as follows:

- Elimination of the meat debris from the tables, floor, around the formers and in
some cases the breather plate should be disassembled to remove debris that
may have been left.
- This dry cleaning is done and if necessary using minimal amounts of water.

- The operational cleanup is carried out using shovels and mops. There is a
personnel in charge for this purpose who wears an orange uniform for the entire
production shift.

The operational procedures in Deboning area are carried out before lunch time
as follows:

- Elimination of the meat debris from the tables, floor and bathtubs using warm
water.
- The bathtubs are rinsed using only warm water.
- Once cleaned the tables are sanitized.
- The operational cleanup is done using shovels and mops by a person in charge
for this purpose who is in orange uniform throughout the time of production.
- The knives and hooks are washed and placed in the sterilizers.

The Operational Procedures in Slaughter are performed before lunch time as


follows:

- Elimination of gross meat and fat material, blood and waste from the floor,
walls, tables and bathtubs using mops, shovels and warm water.
- The operational cleanup is done using shovels and mops. There is a personnel
in charge for this purpose who wears an orange uniform for the entire production

5. POST-OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES
5.1. Preparation
The general cleaning of the production areas can only be done at the end of the
day, when the process rooms are empty or the operations have ceased.

The cleaning begins with the mobilization of all the utensils that intervene in the
production. There should not be any objects left unturned in order to discover
those areas where there may be accumulated dirt.
5.2. Elimination of debris
Next, we proceed to the elimination of the visible dirt that are the pieces of
meat, remains of packaging or wrappings, blood and other waste.

Equipment, boxes, utensils, walls and floors must be removed from all
contaminating materials using hoses and brushes. Said wastes are collected and
placed in garbage cans with airtight lid, which at the end of the day are emptied
and the contents deposited in the containers outside the factory.

It will be avoided to sweep with the dry soil since that will cause a spread of the
germs to the environment and its distribution by all the surfaces already
sanitized.
5.3. Rinse
Rinse everything with the hose, as it is convenient that the media is kept on the
walls and floors in the areas of the processes and can be more costly to
eliminate, dissolve with water.

An order must be followed. It will start at one end of the rooms and advance
towards the opposite area.
5.4. Addition of detergent
After a time of moistening, the detergent is added.

From Monday to Friday the "alkaline detergent" is applied, which allows the
removal of fats and residues (protein dirt, blood, etc.). On Saturdays (end of the
week) is made use of "acid detergent" effective to accelerate the processes of
elimination of mineral deposits and hard water films.

Each of these detergents should be recommended for daily cleaning in food


processing industries; since its active ingredients help to efficiently remove
deposits of proteins, fats and their combinations with inorganic hard water
components (calcium, magnesium and silica carbonates).

Its application is carried out using foam generating equipment, respecting the
concentrations and contact times of the detergent, as well as the water
temperature.

To make the products more effective, mechanical actions must be carried out,
that is, rubbing the treated surfaces to achieve a deep cleaning.
5.5. Rinse
The next step is the rinsing with warm drinking water. The temperature should
not exceed 50ºC to avoid the coagulation of proteins, but it is necessary to be
hot to dissolve fats. It is also essential that you use plenty of water and all the
detergent be removed.

5.6. Addition of the Sanitizer


After rinsing the detergent, the sanitizer (sanitation) must be applied by
fumigation with a spray pack carrying the sanitizing solution. A certain amount
of time should be allowed for the disinfectant to act in the areas that were
applied, avoiding reducing the time, otherwise there would be no effective
action.
An increase in the concentration of sanitizers will not improve their action and
will mean a loss of money; On the other hand, a decrease in concentration will
not kill all the germs and allow resistance to appear.
To avoid this situation, the rotation of the disinfectant products must be carried
out.
Chlorine Dioxide will be used from Monday to Friday and Quaternary Ammonium
on Saturdays.

5.7. Final Rinse


Sanitizers currently used at the recommended concentration do not need final
rinse.
