Pristine and safe equipment is essential when choosing industrial processing equipment for the food industry or other industries where consumer safety is a top concern. When humans or animals are going to consume the final product, you want to make sure that the processing machines are not subject to contamination of any type. For that reason, it’s important to look for the proper certifications.
In the food industry, the top certification standard is 3-A Authorization. Some vendors will say they are compliant without having the authorization certificate—don’t fall for any piece of equipment that isn’t actually authorized. In the long run, skipping certification requirements will end up being a cost – and potential liability – to your operation.
