Vikan were the first, and are, the world leader in colour coded hygiene systems, offering the most comprehensive product and colour range available.

Vikan and their distributors were the first to introduce colour coded hygiene and food handling equipment to the Australian food manufacturing and processing industry.

The primary purpose of colour coding is to help prevent cross contamination. Cross contamination can occur as a result of physical factors, chemical, microbes and allergens, amongst many others.

Most Vikan products are available in up to nine colours to enable your cross contamination management program.


When placing an order please note the product code and colour option (if applicable) to ensure we fulfil your order correctly. The example below demonstrates how our coding system works.

Simply add your colour preference number to the product code to confirm the exact product required.
