Carometec A/S, a world leader in meat quality and sanitation equipment for the food industry stands poised to aid with food safety compliance as the new Food Safety Act takes hold. With stricter guidelines likely on the horizon, food processing plants can look to Carometec for state of the art systems that afford compliance and safety in one customizable package.

The legislation for completely revised food safety laws will greatly increase the amount of food F.D.A. inspections of processing plants, especially for those that process foods considered at high risk for contamination.

Since contamination at one facility has the potential to sicken untold numbers of people around the country, the new legislation demands that plants anticipate the potential of contamination and install adequate plans, routines and equipment to ensure the safety of the products they manufacture.

“With more inspections to take place in food processing plants, large companies who produce, package and offer food will have to step up their game in the realm of food safety and food handler’s hygiene,” states Jeb Supple of Carometec.

Carometec manufactures technology that includes automated hand washing systems, automatic boot washers and other food plant sanitation equipment that prevents contamination through standardized and dependable methods. This 30-year-old company has been on the leading edge of creating the kind of equipment that both our present day and future world needs in order to keep up with the safety of food imported from global sources as well as that which is grown at home in the U.S.

Automatic boot washers and plant sanitation equipment prevent cross contamination during the entire receiving, food handling and shipping process. Automatic hand sanitizers work to raise levels of sanitization to the highest standards for all aspects of food handling.

During recent decades, the Food and Drug Administration focused most on policing medical products. The new legislation grants the F.D.A. greater powers to oversee farming methods and to demand accountability from companies who process foods to assure public safety. This new effort strives to prevent unsafe foods from being distributed to restaurants and markets. This is a large step toward foodborne illness prevention over the current practice that typically involves recalls and intervention after an outbreak has occurred.
