4.2       NATURE OF CONSTRUCTION AND FINISHES

          STRUCTURAL DESCRIPTION OF CLEAN ROOM SUITE - CLASS 9 – ISO 9
          The Class 9 - Clean Room suite structure is one of a modular system using standard panels, which are
          of an EPS fire retarding structural foam core pressure bonded to outer pre-stresses skins, with a
          smooth "Foodsafe" hard white laminate.

          All external corners are finished with hard edging: internal corners are covered and all joints are flat
          and sealed for hygiene purposes thus facilitating cleaning.

          FIT-OUT DOORS
          All doors have double glazed safety viewing panels and are finished in white melamine with silver
          anodised aluminium trim and frames.

          The doors to the airlocks are fitted with audible interlocks (to guard against both inner and outer doors
          being opened at the same time, leading to loss of clean room pressure and ingress of contamination).

          STRIP CURTAIN DOORS
          There are strip curtain doors of 2mm thick clean PVC with top suspension at the entrance of every
          room inside the clean room suite.

          WINDOWS
          Standard double glazed windows, PVC trimmed, assembled at 1000mm and 2000mm above floor
          level according to their location.

          FLOORING
          The floors are covered with Gerland Classic PVC with welded seams, coved to the walls and laid on a
          protein free screed.

          GOODS OUT HATCH
          Located between the Packing Room (clean room) and the Packing Hall (outside the clean room), this
          low level transfer hatch of approx. 1.60m x 1.20m x 1.20m also has an audible alarm interlocked doors
          system to avoid pressure loss and cross-contamination.

          LABELS HATCH
          Situated between the clean room's packing area and the labels room, this hatch is approx. 50 cm
          x 50 cm x 60 cm. It has an interlocked doors system with visual alarm (Traffic Lights) to avoid
          pressure loss and cross-contamination.

          STAFF ENTRANCE - AIR LOCKS
          In addition to the audible alarm interlock system, the main staff entrance air lock has a step over.

          EQUIPMENT WASH ROOM
          This room has a fitted single bowl, double drainer industrial grade stainless steel sink and a shower
          tray with spray head. It has both cold and domestic hot water mains supply.

4.3       VENTILATION SYSTEMS

          The Air Quality of the Class 9 Clean Room Suite meets the ISO 14644-1 (1999) standard with
          pressure gradients across the facility to ensure adequate segregation and control of cross-
          contamination between the different production areas in the suite. The airbourne particulate
          cleanliness level count conform to the acceptance criteria for ISO Class 9, with levels actually within
          ISO Class 8.

        There are air extraction and filters on all production rooms. Air change rate set at 10 changes per
        hour. Pressures are checked daily and filters are changed every week. Filter specification per UK
standards.

4.4       SPECIAL AREAS

          No highly toxic, hazardous or sensitizing materials are used in production. Certain accepted cleaning
          agents and food sanitizers are used.

4.5       WATER SYSTEM

          A standard UK water supply and sanitation system is utilized.                                 Because only dry powders are
          processed, specific water treatment systems are not required.

4.6       MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING

          The planned preventative maintenance programme operating within G&G Food Supplies Ltd consists
          of regular servicing by trained personnel being carried out weekly on all machinery (inclusive of
          oiling etc.).

          There are written procedures and records for all the maintenance and servicing of machinery.

          The maintenance routines that could affect product quality are clearly identified in the written
          procedures and are readily accessible to staff.

          A private pest control service is used by G & G to carry out pest control inspections. These
          inspections are done every 8 weeks.

          The Cleaning of the Production area is done on a daily basis, Department of Quality Control carries
          out a daily cleaning inspection which is then passed on to the Cleaning section so that the cleaning
          party takes action on correcting any out-standard conditions found.

          Among the cleaning materials used are sanitizers for the Food Industry (food grade), to clean the
          production area (excluding machinery) and P3 Alcodes, an alcohol based, hard surface sanitizer for
          the Food Processing Industry, used to clean the equipment such as mixing and encapsulating
          machines.
