Tip #8: Choosing Flooring for Your Candy Manufacturing Space

If you’re considering a new floor for your confectionery manufacturing facility, there are some things you’ll want to keep in mind.

  • Talk to your insurance company.  They might have specific suggestions.
  • Visit with the local health departments. They will freely share their requirements so you can incorporate them as you go.
  • Epoxy flooring is a good choice for sanitation and durability.
  • Cover up the wall so that there is no seam at the wall/floor juncture for dirt, etc. to build up.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to things to consider when choosing flooring for your facility but it’s a great place to start. You can learn even more by attending our Spring Regional Institute in Jacksonville and St. Augustine, Florida, April 17-20, 2012. We'll have two education sessions presented by Silliker Labs and devoted to Good Manufacturing Practices. Click here for the full schedule and how to register.
