Smartlift Bulk Packaging Ltd acknowledges the necessity for an effective hygiene policy to fulfil the requirements of companies involved in the food & chemical sectors.
We supply many manufacturers of food ingredients in the UK who demand contamination free bags so the following measures are taken to ensure this happens;
The Clean Room is segregated from the general production area. All operatives are required to adhere to special regulations, which include wearing protective clothing and only the most experienced operators are selected and continuously trained for the hygiene production lines.
All manufacturing facilities are either HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) and/or BRC / IOP (British Retail Consortium / Institute of Packaging) certified.
All Food Grade Fibc’s are manufactured using the following equipment;
- Ultrasonic cutting machines to prevent loose thread contamination
- Sewing machines with embedded heat-sealing cutting units and vacuum systems to prevent loose thread contamination
- Metal Detection
- Air-washer systems that ensure finished FIBCs are free from loose fibres and foreign bodies
- Floor grills
- Light tables
All bags are then packed onto pallets fully protected from outside contamination and shipped to one of our storage locations where they are again segregated away from the risk of contamination.
