LPS Industries Gains Cleanroom and Safe Quality Food Edition 9 Certifications; Paul Harencak Comments
MOONACHIE, NJ - LPS Industries is undergoing strategic advancements to sharpen its competitive edge, and this play starts with the completion of multiple prestigious certifications. The industry ally announced it has achieved Class 100,000 Cleanroom certification for its recently completed cleanroom, in addition to passing its Safe Quality Food (SQF) Edition 9 Facility certification.
“Achieving this certification is a significant step forward that helps keep LPS Industries on the cutting-edge of flexible packaging technology,” Paul Harencak, Vice-President of LPS Industries, stated. “Our customers will be ensured that their product is produced in an environment suitable for packaging their food products and have security in knowing LPS Industries continues to strive for perfection every day.”
These key certifications represent the latest achievements for LPS Industries’ packaging operation. According to a press release, certifying body NSF, which was founded as the National Sanitation Foundation in 1944, conducted extensive, in-depth, multi-day audits of the applicable codes for flexible food quality packaging. This distinguishing certification showcases the company’s commitment to providing food-compliant, quality products to the food-based industries.
The SQF Program is a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarked food safety standard based on Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP). As noted in the release, the SQF codes require continual improvement for maintaining a food-safe, high-quality environment throughout the cleanroom and the facility.
In addition, the newly received cleanroom certification of Class 100,000 (also known as ISO 8 cleanrooms) means LPS Industries’ cleanroom has a maximum particle count of 100,000 particles greater than 0.5 microns per cubic foot of interior air.
“These certifications are important to our brand as well as to our customers’ peace of mind,” Harencak noted. “These certifications assure that food has been produced, prepared, and handled according to the most recognized standards. They demonstrate a commitment to quality and continual improvement. As a result, they strengthen our brand and market credibility.”
