The Dry Processes working group of the EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group) has published seven guidelines. In this course the most important topics from these guidelines are dealt with in an orderly manner.
Burggraaf & Partners has been specialized since 1993 in advising the food industry and pharmacy, and machine builders in this area. In practically all sectors (bakery, fruit and vegetables, dairy, meat, beverages, biotechnology), the agency is active and together with various organisations it has provided dozens of training courses in this area.
