Food Processing Facilities


When you are shopping you probably don't give a lot of thought to how the packaged food is assembled, but it is mostly done in a factory like building.  For an appraiser, these buildings are very interesting.  In effect, they consist of two buildings - one within another.  The inner building is typically FDA compliant, finished with PVC type walls. and often has "clean rooms."  Employees entering thses facilities have to follow certain hygienic practices which typically include sanitization of even their shoes. 

The picture below shows how meat is cut in one such facility - not much different than at the butcher shop, but probably cleaner.
