Listeria Management in Salmon Processing Industry

Aquatiq is the main supplier of Hygiene solutions to the Salmon Industry in Europe.

Listeria Management.

Our specializing in this area started back in 1994 after a major recall of smoked salmon from the US market.

Salmon Processing has much of the same challenges as poultry, where the processing areas and equipment are wet 24-7. Biofilm is a major challenge and acts as a protection film for pathogenic bacteria.

Our consultants are specialized in finding and eliminating the source. We give training and offer courses to prevent Listeria and other pathogen outbreaks from happening in the future.
