Local Support Teams

Our field based teams have in-depth knowledge of their customers, delivering optimum cleaning solutions but also responding to customers’ challenges by delivering new solutions that respond to a business issue or need.  They understand the industry and your sector and have often held technical or hygiene support roles in similar businesses.

The prime responsibility for liaising with and managing an account falls to the Technical Sales Consultant. They work to an agreed and reviewed structured support plan for the customer. This scheduled process helps to drive continuous improvement in hygiene, safety and cost reduction for individual sites.

Central Support

Kersia’s two microbiology laboratories (in France and Ireland) provide the group with specialist centres of excellence for investigating the micro-organisms present in food. Our experts’ cumulative expertise in food microbiology gives them a major role in knowledge-sharing when contamination warnings are issued, and in paving the way and developing disruptive innovations specifically for farm and food industry settings. 

The Technical Centre (in England) is a state-of-the-art laboratory with access to a range of investigative tools including FTIR and X-ray Spectroscopy, Force Gauges and Surface Tension measurement as well as traditional wet chemistry. A purpose built ‘wet test’ laboratory allows us to simulate many site cleaning operations and is used for product evaluation and for customer training.



Innovation at Kersia is also based on partnerships with research centres and higher education institutions. A strategic partnership has been formed with the Institute for Global Food Security of Queen’s University of Belfast. 

Kersia are members and supportive of the activities and/or committees of the British Association for Chemical Specialities (BACS), the European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG), the Society of Food Hygiene and Technology (SOFHT), the Society of Dairy Technology (SDT) and Campden BRI and work closely with ZERO2FIVE, the Cardiff Metropolitan University’s Food Industry Centre and other universities.
