You’ve likely heard about NSF certified products in our industry but perhaps don’t have clarity on what NSF certification actually means or why it matters from a stainless steel fabrication perspective.
As a reputable independent organisation, the mission of NSF International is to advocate on behalf of human health. They do so by developing public health standards that safeguard food, water, the environment and consumer products.
NSF International has a very diversified staff of certification experts. Public health professionals, certification specialists, toxicologists, engineers, microbiologists and chemists regularly develop and maintain certification standards.
To evaluate products for certification, this team of innovators require products to go through meticulous examinations and comprehensive testing. Products must pass all examinations and testing before they are rewarded the NSF stamp of approval.
Within the food service industry specifically, they test food service equipment and supplies. Our system of modular stainless steel falls within this industry category.
When a company and their product receive NSF certification you can have confidence that they adhere to a set of vital, bench-marked quality standards for consumer safety.
Not all stainless steel fabricators offer NSF certified product. But we aren’t your average stainless steel fabricator.
Becoming NSF certified is not an industry requirement. However, companies that put their product through rigorous testing do so to gain your trust and confidence in their product. We want you to know with certainty that our product is of the utmost quality.
