Givaudan Volketswil emergency plan

Detailed hygiene regulations apply in all areas in which food is prepared, processed or handled. The local and regional guidelines contain detailed provisions on hygiene, as does the FDHA’s Hygiene Ordinance. To guarantee hygiene in the application labs, the work areas are divided into hygiene zones. The hygiene regulations laid down for each zone apply to not only lab personnel, but also visitors (both internal and external) and maintenance and cleaning staff.

Visitors must be accompanied by Givaudan employees.
