Kadant Begins a ‘Certified’ Relationship with Food Safety
Did you know it’s estimated that over 50 million cases of food poisoning happen each year with penalties becoming increasingly harsher for producers? This has led to numerous companies implementing strict guidelines when it comes to supplying products to the food and beverage industry.
Because Kadant is a global supplier of high-value, critical components and engineered systems used in food processing, we understand the importance of food safety. Recently, our U.K. facility obtained international accreditation by HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) to support our ongoing efforts to provide food-safe equipment.
HACCP International provides certification for products, materials, and services brought into food processing and handling which meet best practices in terms of food safety. This independent conformance certification provides validation of a product’s ‘fitness for purpose’ within food processing and handling applications.
With this endorsement, the following blades and blade holders manufactured by Kadant U.K. Limited for use in food manufacturing processes now carry the HACCP seal of approval:
• AccuClean™ blade holder
• AccuFlake™ PRO blade holder
• Carbon Steel™ blades*
• Polyflex™ blades
