Many surfaces that seem clean may actually be teeming with microorganisms that have a natural tendency to form communities called biofilms. Biofilms quickly adhere to and contaminate surfaces, and then spread to new areas as the cells inside further disperse. Although many microorganisms within biofilms are harmless, some are pathogens that can threaten the safety of individuals or food prepared near the contaminated surface.
The summer season welcomes warmer weather and with it, frequent outdoor gatherings with friends, family and delicious food. But summer also brings an increase in cases of foodborne illness, according to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). Considering that one in six Americans suffer from foodborne illness each year, it’s important for retailers to understand its causes and educate customers so that food remains safe after leaving the store.
Huub Vroomen – Diversey’s Executive Director, Research and Development – considers how collaboration to develop a new generation of autonomous robots will boost the cleaning industry and help to overcome our fears of a robotic future.
