Food & Drink Manufacturing
As one of the world’s leading commercial drainage specialists, ACO understands the critical role that drainage plays in a successful commercial food preparation business. We appreciate that food safety, hygiene and cost control are all vital factors yet we also understand that for many, drainage is out of sight and therefore out of mind.
Our Hygiene First Channels
Through extensive research and development, we have become the first company to incorporate the latest hygienic design principles normally used for food production machinery into commercial drainage.
Our Hygiene First drainage channels when compared to normal channels provide increased cleanability and prevents bacteria build up. The profile of the channel edges provides increased durable and stable transmission from traffic over the channel to prevent cracking and the chance of bacteria growth.

We are familiar with HACCP and the prerequisites that underpin it, working closely with industry experts to better understand the risks of sub-optimal drainage and, to support further product development, we are conducting ongoing research with global research body Campden BRI.
As the first drainage company to become a member of the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG), we also play an active role in the development of future best practice guidelines helping to raise standards and reduce business risk for the food processing companies.
Providing engineered as well as standard drainage solutions, we can help you optimise hygiene whether you're a poultry processor who is concerned about listeria, a dairy products manufacturer who wants to minimise bacterial contamination or a brewer who needs to deal with high flow rates.
