Jacques Kastelein

Hygienic design consultant
Vaassen, The Netherlands
Joined 6 years, 2 months


With a bachelor's degree in analytical chemistry, Jacques worked at TNO for years on all kinds of microbiological issues. Part of his job was testing components for use in the food industry according to the EHEDG test methods. In this method, a dosed contamination with micro-organisms is applied, a prescribed cleaning is carried out and the remaining microorganisms are examined, with a report on the cleanability of the component as a result. Jacques is currently advising when there are questions about hygiene in food production, for example about contamination, zoning, design of equipment and lines and materials in contact with food.
