Food Manufacturing Uniforms Laundering Process
Our procedure in laundering garments is to use the best chemicals and methods available to ensure excellent cleanliness, maintain sterile and bacteria-free garments, and preserve fabric life. Rest assured our detergent formulas and methods for washing food-handling garments conform with Title 22 of the California Administrative Code, which deals with the cleanliness of laundries.
- We are sure to remove surface debris and check pockets for physical objects 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. All carts used to deliver products to a food-processing customer are sterilized, lined with plastic, and sealed before any uniform garments are placed in the vehicle.
There are two key factors in the proper sanitation of food processing garments to prevent contamination during the wash cycle.
Wash formulas must be engineered to produce hygienically clean garments that are free from microbial contamination due to bacteria and viruses.
An appropriate water temperature during the wash cycle is essential to kill any microorganisms on the garment.
Uniforms for HACCP Compliance: Safe and sterile laundry process from start to finish!
For the purposes of industrial laundering, HACCP means only one thing to a customer: the prevention of cross-contamination that could impact your product. At Kleen Kraft, we have developed a detailed HACCP Program to ensure you have hygienically clean garments that are free of bacteria, viruses, and other disease-producing organisms.
Any garment that is worn inside a food processing or manufacturing plant is considered a “food surface”, and we treat your uniform garments as an integral part of the food safety process.
