About Us

As a testament to our cautious eye and attention to detail, all the food manufacturing plants we’ve worked on have never failed a food health and safety inspection. Food processing plants have specialised requirements compared to regular commercial sites, so our teams use specialised cleaning procedures that are adapted to meet regular auditing and health inspection requirements.

Get in touch with us via phone or email to discuss our services and arrange an inspection and site audit by one of our friendly team.

Tailored Approach

We work with our clients closely to ensure they get the best cleaning schedule and level of service to suit the needs of their food business, size of facilities and regular operations. Your tailored approach could include regular cleaning and sanitising performed quickly by a clean-up crew late at night, or involve a dedicated cleaning professional on-site at all times… the possibilities are endless. We’re equipped with the staff size, knowledge and equipment to tackle any size of facilities.

Types of food manufacturing facilities we clean include:

In addition to your food manufacturing and processing equipment, we can also take care of attached or demountable office buildings nearby.

In our initial audit and inspection of your facilities, we’ll ask if there’s any areas that you feel need extra attention and keep our eye out for areas that would ordinarily be left neglected. We like our staff to know your facilities like the palm of their hand, so we conduct extensive on-site training with extra contact time for the first few appointments to ensure the professionalism we’re known for remains consistent. The professional image of your facilities starts with the professionalism of our team.

Specialised Cleaning Procedures

Naturally, in larger food manufacturing facilities, run of the mill cleaning and sanitisation equipment simply won’t do. Our teams use specialised commercial cleaning equipment and chemicals designed especially for tackling larger tasks more efficiently and effectively. Whether this means manually scrubbing large vats or pressure cleaning hard to reach surfaces, our cleaning staff leave no stone unturned in ensuring that your facilities are left spick and span and that food manufacturing safety requirements are met.

To ensure all surfaces remain sanitary, we regularly conduct swab testing and APT testing across food manufacturing surfaces. We’ll clean air-conditioning filters whenever necessary to keep air clean for employees and minimise the potential for airborne contamination. Regular audits can be scheduled to ensure all cleaning criteria is being met, which is a good way to prepare for any unexpected health inspections.

Emergency Commercial Cleaning

In the event of an emergency spillage that effects the hygiene and productivity of your facilities, we can be out to you at the drop of a hat. Having dedicated cleaning teams in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Sydney allows us to quickly get to your business in the event of a catastrophe requiring urgent clean up.

Meat Processing Cleaning

As a specific area of food manufacturing plant cleaning, meat processing plants need to be treated a little bit differently due to the different operational demands. At Orbit Cleaning, we are aware of the difference between food processing plants and meat processing plants, so our team are trained specifically to your facility to ensure the best results.

When processing meat there is a higher chance of bacteria forming due to the nature of the product, therefore our team use high quality cleaning products designed to kill bacteria without compromising the condition of your equipment. Just like in a food manufacturing plant, you’ll always have the same familiar team cleaning your facility who have been trained in your meat processing plant’s bespoke cleaning schedule.

Selecting the right team to clean your meat processing plant can have a significant positive impact on your business, more so than you might realise. A good cleaning team will ensure that all surfaces are free of bacteria in what is such a delicate environment. It’s imperative to remember that food contamination as a result of poor sanitisation can be detrimental to your business in so many ways. If a consumer gets food poisoning from one of your products, your business could be in serious reputational and legal trouble.

Contact Orbit Cleaning Australia to ensure your meat processing plant is cleaned by a team with attention to detail and professional integrity.
