Borton Fruit is a premium grower, packer and shipper of apples, pears and cherries.
The partnership includes Algae Guard Quat Blocks, which help control microbial growth in cooling unit condensate drain pans.
Pow-R-Scrub, a phosphate-free, mildly alkaline mix of detergents and non-toxic solvents and Neutra Foam, a safe, chemically-neutral formula used as a general-purpose cleaner or as a foam generator.
“Birko has gone out of its way to teach our staff why food safety is important and why sanitation is vital to the functionality of our food safety program,” said Miles Murphy, food safety manager for Borton Fruit.
Borton Fruit also installed a Birko portable rolling foamer to apply sanitation cleaners. The portable rolling foamer is air powered and applies shaving cream-like foam.
Kellie Bauman, Birko’s technical sales representative for the northwest region, said, “While Borton has transitioned to several Birko chemicals, we’ve also provided a lot of training to the Borton sanitation crew in proper cleaning techniques.”
