Ann Arbor, MI — NSF International, an independent global organization that writes public health standards, tests and certifies products for the food, water and consumer goods industries, is now the preferred provider of sanitation certification services for Manitowoc Foodservice, a leading global foodservice equipment company. NSF now provides sanitation certification for all 25 of Manitowoc’s foodservice equipment brands worldwide, which include a wide range of products such as ice, beverage, cooking, serving, warewashing and sanitization equipment.
By combining NSF International’s expertise in foodservice equipment sanitation and Manitowoc’s leadership in equipment manufacturing, the two organizations are helping to provide safer, higher quality foodservice equipment to companies worldwide.
To earn NSF foodservice equipment certification, NSF audits the manufacturing facility and conducts an evaluation of the design and construction of Manitowoc’s products. The evaluation includes testing to verify material safety and to determine that the material does not leach harmful chemicals into food, as well as performance testing to verify that the product performs as advertised. NSF also conducts annual unannounced facility audits to verify continual compliance to the program.
“Selecting NSF International as our preferred certification provider lends even more credibility to the safety and reliability of our food equipment products,” says Tom Wooderson, director of global supply chain at Manitowoc Foodservice. “Additionally, this agreement allows for commercial efficiencies as we continue to grow our global business.”
