Testing includes Total Viable Count, Enterobacteriaceae, Coliform count, E. coli count, Yeast & Mould, Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella.
Swabbing – Hand Hygiene: swabbing can also be used to monitor hand hygiene which with hand washing awareness is part of food factory hygiene. Testing would normally include Staphylococcus aureus and E. coli.
