Cleaning and sanitizing areas in which food is handled is extremely important. If surfaces in food service areas are not properly cleaned and sanitized, chemical hazards and cross-contamination can lead to foodborne illnesses. Foodborne illnesses can often be a result of improper use of cleaning products or use of unsafe cleaning products in food service areas. Buckeye’s Food Service Program promotes a sanitary environment with effective products and procedures for your facility’s food service area. With Buckeye’s food service products, risk of foodborne illnesses is greatly decreased.
Buckeye provides several products specifically designed for food service. Buckeye food service products are concentrated, economical, butyl-free, biodegradable, and packaged in waterproof containers. These products include Dysh™ concentrated liquid detergent, Sani-Q2™ disinfectant sanitizer, FoodMaster™ Concentrate heavy-duty cleaner/degreaser, and Liberate® heavy-duty foaming cleaner.
Dysh is a liquid detergent designed for hand washing dishes, glassware, pots, pans, and silverware. FoodMaster Concentrate and Liberate work to get rid of grease and heavy soils on floors, walls, cutting tables, countertops, baking pans, and processing equipment. Sani-Q2 effectively kills Salmonella, disinfecting surfaces exposed to raw food products like meat and poultry. Sani-Q2, FoodMaster Concentrate, and Liberate are all registered with the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), meaning they are compliant with food safety regulations.
Each Buckeye product comes with hands-on training to ensure that each part of your facility is maintained and clean. For schools and universities, the Buckeye Honors® training program has informational materials and videos for food service and other integral aspects of facility maintenance, like carpet care, wood floor care, hard floor care, and cleaning restrooms, lockers, and showers.
