14 Years Working with Marston's Brewery

Blog | 9 October 2017

We have worked with Marston’s across its five breweries for over 14 years to help achieve the perfect pint time after time.  Within the brewing industry consistency of each product is key to success, and our relationship with Marston’s ensures this is achieved via excellent plant hygiene, the highest quality cleaning and sanitising chemicals and technical support.

The 360° approach is clear to see in the Burton upon Trent Marston’s brewery where our team is part of the day to day operation. The combined efforts ensure that the site performs to the best of its ability.  Production on the site has increased and with this comes additional needs so that the quality of the final product is achieved.

We work with Marston’s to ensure that we are supplying the correct cleaning and sanitising chemicals to meet their ongoing requirements.  This is then backed up with regular visits by the dedicated Holchem technical team to deliver the required advice and support to help achieve the highest level of plant hygiene. Included within this are cleaning methodology audits and Cleaning In Place audits (CIP) as well as a requirement to shorten the whole cleaning process and ensure the site is as efficient as possible.  Fundamental to the success of the whole cleaning and hygiene regime is our understanding of what Marston’s is trying to achieve and ensuring that the whole operation is maintained from a plant hygiene point of view.  Some of the work we have carried out now forms part of Marston’s continuous improvement programme.

Peter Thorman, Brewery and Beverage UK Sales Manager at Holchem, said: Supplying Marston’s is very much a technical related approach.  It’s not just about supplying chemicals, it’s about the technical back up in terms of improving the quality, cost and efficiency and time it takes to clean.

Hector MacDonald, Quality Manager at Marston’s, added: Marston’s has a long standing relationship with Holchem.  They are the suppliers of all our cleaning and sanitisation chemicals for the business.  They supply all five of our breweries and are crucial in our operation in terms of maintaining quality and consistency through good plant hygiene.  We have regular conversations with our technicians from Holchem and they understand what we are trying to manage and are keen to help us deliver it.
