What does the certification mean?
The Hygienically Clean Certification in Food Safety reflects our commitment to carrying out the best management practices (BMPs) in the laundry industry and our capability to consistently deliver hygienically clean uniforms, free of harmful bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants.
How did we earn the certification?
To receive the certification, Kleen Kraft underwent a comprehensive independent third-party inspection that confirmed essential evidence that:
- Our employees are properly trained and protected
- Our management understands the most up-to-date legal requirements and regulations
- We are OSHA-compliant
- Our physical plant operates effectively
Kleen Kraft passed three rounds of quantified biological testing by an accredited laboratory, verifying that our laundry processes are producing Hygienically Clean Food Safety garments and reusable textile items that meet internationally recognized hygiene standards. Microbial testing provides tangible proof that Kleen Kraft delivers Hygienically Clean garments free of mold, yeast, and bacteria including E-Coli, Salmonella, Candida, Staph, and others.
To maintain our certification, Kleen Kraft will pass quarterly testing to ensure that we continue to produce high-quality, hygienic garments that are safe for our food processing customers. We must also ensure that there is at least one dedicated onsite expert who has completed the Hygienically Clean Course.
HACCP compliant & exceeding regulations
The Hygienically Clean Certification also confirmed that Kleen Kraft practices and follows the seven HACCP principles, prevents cross-contamination, and makes sure our garments are free of viruses or bacteria. HACCP practices examined included:
- Conducting hazard analysis
- Determining Critical Control Points, monitoring their control, correcting them if not under control
- Validating and verifying HACCP system effectiveness
- Documenting and record-keeping to show ongoing performance
Our inspection also evaluated and confirmed that our practices relevant to handling and processing textile products used in food manufacturing and processing adhere to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) directives.
