Klüber Lubrication is now also a member of EHEDG

The aim of the EHEDG is to increase the awareness of hygiene issues when processing and packaging foodstuffs.

The European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) is a consortium of equipment manufacturers, food industries, research institutes as well as public health authorities and was founded in 1989 with the aim to promote hygiene during the processing and packing of food products.
The principal goal of EHEDG is the promotion of safe food by improving hygienic engineering and design in all aspects of food manufacture. EHEDG actively supports European legislation, which requires that handling, preparation processing and packaging of food is done hygienically using hygienic machinery and in hygienic premises (EC Directive 2006/42/EC for Machinery, EN 1672-2 and EN ISO 14159 Hygiene requirement).


As a member of this organisation, Klüber Lubrication actively supports and contributes to the goals of EHEDG.
