The event which was held at Custom House Square in Belfast attracted over 20,000 visitors. FloorTech® discussed issues such as Food Industry Standards and BRC Audits with representatives from Neil’s Flour, Antrim Hills and Tayto NI. Meticulous audits and exceptionally high standards have become more prevalent with more and more local suppliers being listed in large retail multiples such as Tesco. In order to achieve BRC accreditation, food and drink processing companies require a hygienic, durable and impervious flooring system. FloorTech’s Trazconâ systems have been designed specifically to meet the required industry standards. Many food processors in attendance including Kerry Foods and Moy Park have already installed FloorTech’s Trazconâ resin systems in their manufacturing plants.
First Minister Peter Robinson mentioned “The Tesco Taste Festival allows direct contact between producers, suppliers and consumers. I commend Tesco for its strong tradition of supporting Northern Ireland’s processors and producers, giving customers the choice to buy local”. Currently food and drink companies generate almost £4 billion for the Northern Ireland economy and employ almost 20,000 people.
FloorTech® look forward to continuing their long partnership with Northern Ireland’s largest indigenous industry.
