    Scope & contentBy Andrew Wilkinson, Milling and Grain magazine

    The subject of food sanitation continues to have a huge influence on the choice of materials deemed suitable for food contact. In fact, in the last few years Ocrim has invested generously in research and development in order to identify the most appropriate materials in the market for food contact to use when designing its own machines.

    Ocrim has decided to change from sieves made of wood coated with Formica to plastic alternatives. “When we talk about plastic nowadays, we refer to a broad world diversified world,” states Mr Riboldi.

    After research and development investments, Ocrim has decided to focus on two plastic types. The first of these options is a so-called ‘green plastic’ that is light brown in colour, whilst the other is a ‘antimicrobial’ plasticz.
