ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- iGPS Logistics, the leading plastic pallet pooling service provider in North America, now offers the capability to deliver direct food contact level safety for its pallet customers. The revolutionary method applies a food contact surface sanitizer to iGPS plastic pallets, reducing contaminants by an average of 96%.
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires transport equipment, such as pallets, to be cleaned and sanitized to prevent food from becoming contaminated. Industry experts have stated that 5,000 – 10,000 CFU (colony-forming unit of Aerobic Plate Count bacteria) per sampling swab are acceptable levels of sanitization for pallets. Testing on the sanitized iGPS plastic pallets showed consistently at less than half these minimum acceptable levels.
"This sanitization process is the latest step in bringing our clients the best possible products, solutions and services that focus on Food Safety and Hygiene, that maximize cost savings," said Jeff Liebesman, CEO of iGPS Logistics. "The testing results of the new process are truly extraordinary – iGPS now offers customers a level of cleanliness beyond industry standards or current capabilities."
iGPS is proud to be the driving force of change and innovation.
