Abstract This project focused on monitoring sanitation methods of open and closed dairy systems, including fogging, ozonation, footbath hygiene, cleaning of cheese moulds and yoghurt pasteurizers. It also addressed the development of testing procedures for measuring disinfectant efficacy, microbial resistance phenomena against disinfectants and of an evaluation procedure for the functionality of the cleaning operations. Based on the results, new procedures in hygiene have been implemented in dairies.
