The Growth and Secure Future of the Food Industry
Over the last few years, and often since 2021, the food industry has been the focus of a great deal of attention when it comes to hygiene and safety rules. This has led to intensive growth in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for the food industry, such as safety shoes, gloves, masks or aprons. In general, the demand for PPE in the food industry has accelerated due to the hygiene rules of the COVID-19 pandemic, the implementation of restrictive government regulations, and technological advances.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the global PPE market, and companies were required to provide more safety, comfort, and technological products to protect workers from potential dangers and contamination.
The future of the food industry is now following the way of innovations to offer workers a safe workspace and, consequently, a more reliable supply chain for consumers.
Advances in Technology
The impact of the pandemic protocols and food processing market requirements have boosted the studies to develop new safety technological advances.
After understanding the conditions and challenges faced by the food industry workers, manufacturers of PPE like Dikamar designed new products especially for them.
Our EagleGrip boot is made of PU (Polyurethane) and has been developed with a very soft design so that it can be easily cleaned. This boot is 40% lighter than rubber or PVC boots, which is very important for workers who spend a long time on their feet.
In addition, these boots have several other benefits for food processing employers, some of which include:
Resistance to adverse substances: designed to have a higher resistance to abrasion, chemicals, oils, and temperatures.
Lightweight: Combined with the latest technology, Eaglegrip is made only from PU, a very lightweight material of superior quality.
Sole design for excellent grip: Made to have an exceptional grip in extreme environments. Have a plain sole with full contact with the ground (no gap between the heel and the front) which improves grip.
Feet Protection 100% metal-free: The feet are protected by a metal-free toe cap made of composite material, which reduces the risk of
metal contamination in food products. Available in O4, S4 and S5
Comfort all day long: Perfect fit for those who spend a lot of time on their feet. Moreover have excellent thermal insulation down to -30°C (-22°F)
EagleGrip is certified according to European standards like EN ISO 20347:2022 and 20345:2022 (SR+CI); In addition, have a ASTM F2413 I/C/SD certification
The time for change is now
Climate changes, social change, resource scarcity, and social awareness are changing the way consumers think. Today, consumers are more aware of their impact on world safety and how the importance of your security has a major impact on global security.
New technological PPE, such as the Eaglegrip boot, improves worker well-being in a meticulous environment like the food industry.
