VIDEO: NSF Commercial Food Equipment Certification for North America - Why Certify
In North America , restaurants owners have to be 100% sure their equipment meets hygienic food safety criteria.
WHY is this?
Because the FDA Food code, legal requirements adopted in all the US states, requires it，and because public health inspectors CHECK this, when they inspect a restaurant. They check if equipment is NSF certified - because they can then be sure it meets the Food code requirements which address 3 aspects:
1. Food Contact Materials
2. Cleanability of the design and the construction
3. And the performance
So if you are a food equipment manufacturer selling commercial food equipment on the US market. Make sure to get the NSF certification! It guarantees coast to coast acceptance in the United States by public health officials. and also meets public health requirements in Canada. Which is exactly what your North American customers expect!
