As a manufacturer of processing equipment used in the packaging of food products in multiple areas of the food industry, we understand our responsibility to uphold hygiene, sanitation, and quality standards through our designs. Forpak’s innovative solutions for equipment used in the packing of food products in industrial facilities follow strict regulations set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and many other organizations that set requirements and quality standards for food safety. Our food assembly equipment designs include automated, intelligent systems for stacking, laning, sorting, transfers, conveying, reject systems, and more. We also work with clients in need of custom designs that fit specifications for their particular packaging facilities. Our equipment can be easily integrated into existing production lines and maintained in the long term with the protection and benefits of our preventative maintenance program. For more than 30 years, Forpak has worked to meet advanced demands for automated packing equipment while supporting food industry standards for safety and quality.
Food Assembly Equipment
We build our food assembly equipment to accommodate the main industries of meat and poultry, baked goods, and pizza packaging. Our equipment is currently operating on a global scale in many production facilities around the world. Because of our international customer base, we continue to meet specialized industrial standards for the meat and bakery industries.
Federal and International Standards
In addition to federal and industry-specific food safety and environmental standards, we also meet strict specifications for the NSF International and American Institute of Baking (AIB) International organizations.
NSF 3A for Meat and Poultry
NSF International was founded in 1944, originally as the National Sanitation Foundation. The organization grew to cover sanitation in global markets and solidified into today’s certification and standardization system that we know as NSF International, accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Our commitment to meeting NSF 3A Standards for meat and poultry packaging equipment means we create equipment with materials, surface treatments, coatings, sealants, and controls that are durable and washable. Our equipment can be sanitized without risking damage to machine integrity or other detriment, and our designs can be subject to high pressure and humid environments for extended operations without compromise.
BISSC for Baking
The Baking Industry Sanitation Standards Committee (BISSC) is a subsidiary of AIB International and works as an office of certification for fabricators and designers of bakery equipment. The first form of the BISSC was founded in 1949. Today, the BISSC works with ANSI standards for manufacturing equipment for baked goods covering sanitation and food safety. This standard outlines similar requirements for design, materials, and surface treatment of the NSF 3A and other food industry standards, but also establishes strict limitations for corrosion resistance, absorbency, toxic construction materials, protective coatings, and cleaning methodologies.
Both NSF International and the BISSC standards guide our design and manufacturing processes. Our goal as a fabricator of food assembly equipment is to continue to uphold global food safety to the best of our abilities.
