Hygienic Design for Allergen Management and Bakery Hygiene Rules Compliance

In the commercial baking industry, adhering to bakery hygiene rules is paramount. Effective allergen management and compliance with these rules are essential for consumer safety and satisfaction. At AMF Bakery Systems, we take hygienic design in our baking equipment seriously and strive to maintain the highest standards in hygienic design, ensuring adherence to sanitation rules and addressing allergen concerns with precision.

AMF’s Hygienic Design Solutions

AMF Fusion

AMF Fusion products, including their horizontal batch mixers and dough handling solutions, are engineered with a focus on sanitary industrial dough mixing. This means that design elements emphasize hygiene, including designing surfaces that are easy to clean – reducing cleaning time and ensuring high-quality – making bakery hygiene rules compliance simple and straightforward. And with over sixty years of innovation on the design and engineering team, the makers of our AMF Fusion products have a deep understanding of industry standards, including those related to hygiene, sanitation, and allergen management. With systems that are easy to clean and automated solutions, like the automatic guided vehicle, it’s easy to avoid allergen contamination as well with AMF Fusion.

AMF Flex

Our AMF Flex line up is designed to meet the highest sanitation and allergen control standards for baking equipment. The equipment is easy to use, making cleaning and maintenance simple, and allowing bakeries to best follow bakery hygiene rules. AMF Flex’s dough rounding equipment is even built to eliminate the need for oil and dusting flour, which further simplifies sanitation practices and avoids introducing more potential allergens. AMF Flex designs also ensure consistent product quality, a key factor in maintaining consumer trust and meeting sanitation requirements.

AMF Tromp

When it comes to sheeting, laminating, and decorating, AMF Tromp provides high-quality equipment engineered to meet hygienic requirements and allergen regulations for bakeries. AMF Tromp’s precision eliminates product waste, which can contribute to to poor sanitation in bakery systems. Like Fusion and Flex equipment, AMF Tromp is also designed to be easy to clean and maintain, further enhancing its sanitation capabilities to keep consumers safe.

AMF PackTech

AMF PackTech delivers sanitary systems tailored for retail bread and bun packaging as well as bulk packaging solutions. This ensures that the packaging process maintains high hygiene standards. PackTech’s automated solutions, such as the Saber 75 Bread Slicer, Mark 75 Bread Bagger, and the HS40 Bulk Bun Packer are designed with superior access design and corrosion-resistant stainless steel frames and guards to ensure high-quality production with ease of production changeover all while maintaining high hygiene standards. In addition, PackTech’s 75S is designed with the future in mind as it includes a full stainless steel sealed structure and stainless 304-4 guards with no holes in any tubing, ready for future bakery sanitation standards. All of these solutions, in addition to providing optimal sanitation, also produce consistent quality and extend the shelf life of bakery products.

AMF Convay

AMF Convay provides sanitation measures for moving a wide range of bakery assets, including raw dough balls, baked products, pans, lids, packaged products, baskets, trays, and more. Equipment is designed to ensure the seamless transfer from upstream to downstream operations, reducing downtime, and improving production line efficiencies. Improving sanitary design across the system reduces contamination risks and allows bakeries to adhere to hygiene rules and control for allergens.

Consistent Quality and Sustainability

How the Lights Out Bakery Aids in Quality Consistency

AMF’s vision of a lights-out bakery is one that envisions bakeries with reduced human inputs and increased automation for greater energy efficiency and improved product consistency. This approach can in turn minimize the risk of contamination from allergens or bacteria and ensure a consistent adherence to hygiene standards.
