How we help
Our technology involves an efficient and environmentally friendly way of disinfecting food processing facilities. However, each food sector faces particular challenges and ALVAR assists in different ways to overcome them
Often, shrimps are primarily cooked and chilled onboard before being peeled and packed onshore. Cookers are enclosed high-risk areas, while shrimp processing facilities can be remarkably difficult to clean. In this case, food production hygiene is essential to prevent cross-contamination of cooked material. As in other sectors, additional challenges in shrimp processing are the lack of available workforce in some geographical areas and the aim of improving the sustainability of their operations

sanitation process by automating the disinfection
Every processing area is different, but it can be estimated that manual disinfection of 3000m2 requires 2.5 hours and 2-3 workers. ALVAR automates the disinfection process, with consequent savings in labour costs. Automation also reduces the exposure to human errors and to labour shortages
Misting is an optimised method of using water and disinfectant chemicals. Our systems are custom-made, but, on average, we reduce the consumption of water by 90% and of chemicals by 70% during the disinfection process
Enclosed machinery, like shrimp cookers, can be particularly challenging when it comes to sanitation. Hard to reach areas, hidden surfaces and gaps in the machinery entail a difficult and time consuming task for the cleaning team.
ALVAR has developed Mist Focus, a solution to ease and improve the hygiene in enclosed equipment. Mist Focus automatises the disinfection process by creating a dense disinfectant mist inside the machinery, reaching all areas and gaps. Mist Focus is a great extra protection tool, but a previous proper cleaning is always needed
