HACCP Compliant Work Uniforms: Clean is Just the Beginning

Friday, January 4, 2019

From regulatory compliance to heavy stain-resistance and durability, finding uniforms for food handlers is nothing short of a science. That’s why we provide the highest-quality food-handling coats tailor-made for a job with no margin for error.

Ultra Safe, and HACCP-Compliant

Food-borne illnesses are no trivial matter. Work uniforms are a crucial link in the chain for safety as well as for compliance with strict FDA regulations around the manufacturing and handling processes of food and health products.

Our food-handling coats meet HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) standards designed to shield food and health products from harmful pathogens and any other form of contamination. HACCP compliance requires safety in both design elements of the uniform, as well as the laundering process. Other safety and health elements may include:

  • Fitted garments to prevent spills
  • Knit cuffs to protect the product from coming in direct contact with the food-handling worker
  • No pockets. Pockets can trap bacteria, or allow objects to fall into the production area.
  • Snap closures. Buttons can fall off, contaminate products and ruin a production run. Snaps also make for quick garment removal after spills.
  • Special laundering and handling to avoid cross-contamination
  • Specific water temperature and rinse processes to ensure conditions that will loosen soil and kill disease-causing microorganisms

Down to the Nitty Gritty

As the work uniform provider to a wide variety of Southern California food and health product manufacturers both large and small, we have built processes around both health and safety and cleanliness. From ridding uniforms of bright orange tumeric to other stubborn stains that accumulate in the process of manufacturing food and health supplements, other companies struggle with the toughest stains, but our coats are designed to be a cut above the competition when it comes to soil release and durability.

Food and health product uniforms have to stand up to deep cleaning, including bleaching and high water temperatures, without degrading. Our clients love our food-handling coats, which stand up to deep anti-microbial cleaning processes and are delivered in clean, crisp and professional condition week after week. Here are some other key details of our coats for food handlers:

  • 100% spun polyester
  • Snaps, elastic knit cuffs and hidden plackets that cover snaps
  • Thicker than ordinary uniforms
  • Highly durable
  • Unprecedented soil release
  • Bleachable, with minimal fabric degradation over time

And needless to say, we deliver our uniforms hygienically and clean.
