Food Safety Uniforms
COMPLIANT UNIFORM GARMENTS FOR FOOD MANUFACTURING FACILITIES, PROCESSING PLANTS, AND COMMERCIAL KITCHENS
Southern California is known for its rich agriculture, consumable products and food processing. As this economic sector has grown and transitioned over time to meet the needs of their consumers and comply with evolving FDA regulations, so has Kleen Kraft Services.
THE MAJORITY OF OUR CLIENT BASE IS COMPRISED OF FOOD MANUFACTURING FACILITIES – THERE’S A REASON FOR THAT.
Our food safety uniform program is designed to meet or exceed FDA and USDA standards and complies with all HACCP regulations, preventing cross-contamination and taking work contaminants out of the equation. 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.

Safe and sterile laundry process from start to finish:
Our customers should expect and demand that Kleen Kraft Services provide the proper caution and risk assessment as their uniform provider. A garment that is worn inside a food processing plant by our customers is considered a “food surface”, and Kleen Kraft Services must treat the garment as an integral part of the food safety process.
Our procedure in laundering garments is to use the best chemicals and methods available to preserve fabric life, ensure excellent cleanliness, and maintain a sterile and bacteria-free garment. Kleen Kraft’s detergent formulas and methods for handling food service garments conform with Title 22 of the California Administrative Code, which deals with cleanliness of laundries.
There are two factors in the proper sanitation of garments to prevent contamination during the wash cycle.
• Factor #1: Wash formulas have been engineered to produce hygienically clean garments that are free from microbial contamination due to bacteria and viruses.
• Factor #2: An appropriate water temperature during the wash cycle is essential to kill any microorganisms on the garment.
The first step in our laundering process is to remove surface debris and check pockets for personal items such as food, headphones, utility knives, etc. Garments then go through a multi-step wash procedure. After the wash cycle, garments are run through our high-temperature steam tunnel and finally through the clean sort inspection and ATP testing. All of our Route Representatives have been trained on how to avoid cross-contamination of soiled garments and clean garments. Before any garments have been placed in the vehicle, all carts being delivered to a food processing customer have been lined with plastic and sealed.
Kleen Kraft is a local, independently owned company that has served the uniform and facility maintenance needs of food processing operations for decades. We have the capacity and inventory necessary to provide everyone in your company – from assembly line workers to lab techs to sales representatives – with top of the line uniforms that are safe and sterile but look and feel great too.
