WE ARE THE UNIFORM SERVICE PARTNER OF CHOICE FOR MANY FOOD PROCESSING MANUFACTURERS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
That’s because we don’t cut corners. We take the steps necessary to prevent cross-contamination during our uniform selection, inspection and laundering process, including:
choose from pocketless shirts and pants, snap-front buttonless shirts, chef wear, food safety lab coats, butcher coats, and more.
Properly fitted uniforms:
we offer fabrics and fits that keep your employees safe and comfortable on the job, selecting uniforms that are non-constrictive and fabrics that can withstand the intense laundering process required for HACCP compliance over and over again.
Safe and sterile laundry process from start to finish:
With years of experience servicing food processing plants of every size throughout Southern California, Kleen Kraft practices and maintains a keen understanding of the specific uniform requirements as defined by HACCP to help our customers remain productive, safe, and sterile.
For the purposes of industrial laundering, HACCP means only one thing to a customer: the prevention of cross-contamination that could impact the customer’s product. Kleen Kraft Services has established and follows the seven HACCP Principles to ensure hygienically clean garments, free of bacteria, viruses, and other disease producing organisms. Our food safety uniform program is designed to meet or exceed FDA and USDA standards and complies with HACCP regulations, preventing cross-contamination and taking work contaminants out of the equation.
The line of work apparel designed for food processing includes shirts, pants, smocks, and labcoats. All garments are without buttons or pockets above the waist in order to avoid potential contamination from a foreign object falling out of a chest pocket into a food supply. Color coded garments help QA managers better identify workers and visitors who could be contaminating food products by being outside their designated work areas. A color coded system also segregates high care garments with low care garments. It is important that garments are manufactured using the right materials that provide a higher level of anti-microbial protection.
Proper storage conditions are also very important to keep clean and soiled garments separate. Kleen Kraft Services provides a locker system to store clean garments and a bulk collection locker used to dispose of soiled garments.
The removal of contaminants from soiled garments is critical for the cleanliness and sanitation of the garments, the first step in our laundering process. Surfaces and pockets are inspected to remove excess food particles, debris, and personal items. Kleen Kraft wash formulas are specifically designed with food safety in mind to hygienically sanitize and sterilize each uniform. After the multi-step wash cycle, garments are run through a high-temperature steam tunnel to further sanitize each item. Finally, before wrapping for delivery, garments are subjected to ATP testing with a luminometer to guarantee there is no potential for biological or microbial contamination.
