World Baking Day is on Sunday, May 17th.
The US bakery products industry includes about 2,800 commercial bakeries with combined annual revenue of about $36 billion along with about 6,000 retail bakeries with combined annual revenue of about $3.8 billion. Major companies include Bimbo Bakeries which owns six of the top twelve fresh bread brands in the US, Flowers Foods and McKee Foods (both based in the US), along Weston Foods (Canada).
For years, in order to keep bakery ovens running at peak performance, companies had to rely on conventional methods of cleaning, including the use of brooms and shovels, not very efficient when dealing with deadlines and certainly not very safe while the oven is still hot. A well equipped industrial vacuum is a viable solution. Nilfisk offers portable, yet powerful options such as models 118, S2 and S3 industrial vacuums. These are available with or without HEPA Filters and with painted or stainless steel upper and lower containers. To reduce downtime and ensure safety, high temperature hoses, wands and oven attachments are available for quick and easy cleaning. All vacuums are equipped with large main filters with external filter shakers for added efficiency. Hi-temp Nomex filters are also available if required.
Nilfisk has provided proven solutions for the food industry for several decades. Contact your local sales representative for more information.
