work boots food processing industryDo you work in the food processing industry? Then hygiene and safety are paramount, and a good pair of work boots is crucial. You can opt for classic rubber boots, but the work boots from Bekina Boots made of NEOTANE (a high-quality polyurethane) stand out in many ways. The reviews confirm that our work boots for the food processing industry are extra-comfortable, offer excellent grip, and have a longer working life than rubber boots. This means you won't have to buy as many boots per year, saving on your expenses and total ownership cost.

In the food processing industry or butchery trade, you come into contact with various liquids such as vegetable and animal oils, fats, various chemical cleaning products, and blood. The sole profile of our work boots is designed to make them very easy to clean and, because the shaft and sole merge seamlessly, there are no edges where dirt can creep in. Our work wellies for the food processing industry are extra-hygienic!

Did you know that: Every pair of Bekina work boots is fitted with an RFID tag in the right boot? This allows you to scan, identify, and track the boots.

In addition to hygiene, your safety and that of your employees is a top priority. Our NEOTANE work boots have also been thoroughly tested in our lab, are SRC-approved, and guarantee a good grip on any surface.

When you walk around in work boots for a whole day, you want to experience the same comfort as with a good pair of shoes. Our range of work boots for the food processing industry contains a suitable boot for every job for both men and women. All our boots are made from quality materials that are light and strong.
