HACCP Principles and Food Safety with Packaging Equipment

The ideals of safety in the food industry include sanitation and hygiene, of course, but also involve the protection of food quality in terms of nutrients and flavors, worker safety, sustainability, and effective distribution worldwide. The global food industry is a complex system that has evolved to meet the needs of a population of 8 billion. Because of the sector’s complexities, strict standards set by international agencies and governments are required to maintain a working system without compromising safety or furthering climate change. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and other organizations play a large role in regulating the food industry in the United States. Since 1997, these agencies and others have adopted Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles for food safety. As a manufacturer of innovative food packing equipment, Forpak follows strict industry guidelines including HACCP principles to maximize efficiency and safety.

Food Processors

HACCP has seven core principles that food processors can utilize to pinpoint issues in their systems and correct those potential hazards before they damage food quality, employee safety, or facilities.

For food safety and the prevention of other hazards, HACCP principles include:

Analysis of hazards:

Collecting data about the conditions of a hazard is a key first step in correcting those problems. Analyzing a stage in your assembly process for hazards also helps you follow the same pattern for future hazard points.

Find critical control points:

Once a hazard analysis sets your foundation, determining the critical control points will help you work to prevent that hazard from continuing. Control points are any kinds of steps, tools, or other components of your operations where control over safety can be applied.

Set limits:

Your limits are whatever minimum and maximum levels a control must be applied to reduce or prevent hazards. This can be a physical, chemical, or biological control limit.

Monitor process:

Observe changes you make in your controls and their limits to determine if more adjustments are needed and to collect data on that process.

Correct errors:

If your data collection on changes to control points and their limits results in a continued hazard, you should correct parameters to reduce that error. This principle also covers any corrections needed to noncompliance to laws, regulations, and standards.

Verify process:

When your control points and limits are accurately and reliably reducing or eliminating a hazard, establish a verification step that can be used in the future on other HACCP processes. Different steps of a HACCP process can be verified with varying frequencies depending on their scope of impact.

Keep detailed records:

To improve all your HACCP practices and corrective actions in general, you need to keep detailed records and establish procedures around those documentation processes.

At Forpak, we follow HACCP principles in all our manufacturing operations to ensure our products protect worker, equipment, and food safety in the packing industry.

Importance of Food Industry Safety and Sanitation for Meat Packing

As populations soared in large cities, food packing throughout the United States had a grim start. The early factories, slaughter houses, and packing plants had very poor sanitation. Fortunately, the situation in the meatpacking industry is much different today. Factories are held to strict standards and every step of the raising, slaughtering, packing, and distributing of livestock meat adheres to the standards of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and other regulatory organizations. At Forpak, we design and manufacture equipment that helps our customers maintain a streamlined packing system that meets food industry sanitation standards. Forpak equipment offers innovative solutions for multiple downstream production line operations, including stacking, conveying, autotransfers, reject systems, laning, sorting, and more.

Meat Industry

The meat industry in the United States began with fur trader William Pynchon when he started salt packing pork into barrels and shipping them to the West Indies. However, by the early 1800s, cities like Boston and Cincinnati were earning nicknames for the thousands of animals processed in various packing plants. In 1833, Cincinnati alone was processing 85,000 pigs a year, giving credence to its nickname “Porkopolis.”

USDA

In 1862, President Abraham Lincoln established the USDA to oversee the safe processing of meat products. After the turn of the century, when meat packing plants grew much larger thanks to industrial advances, the hygienic side of the industry couldn’t quite keep up. When Upton Sinclair published The Jungle in 1906, which detailed the dirty and brutal world of the meat industry in the United States, conditions would take a turn for the better.

Federal Meat Inspection Act

Over the years, multiple improvements have come to the meat industry thanks to government regulations like the Federal Meat Inspection Act and the Pure Food and Drug Act, both in 1906; the Packers and Stockyards Act of 1921; meat grading laws; the establishment of the FDA in 1931; the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1939; the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act of 1958; and many others.

Food Industry

Sanitation and hygiene in the meat packing and food industry in general helps to prevent the spread of many foodborne illnesses. When it comes to meat products, sanitation and inspections, as well as the proper handling of livestock, prevent widespread illnesses from pathogens including:

Salmonella:

Exposure to Salmonella bacteria causes symptoms such as diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. In some cases, infection can result in hospitalization and death.

Listeria:

Infection from Listeria monocytogenes causes diarrhea, fever, fatigue, muscle aches, and even sepsis in the bloodstream and meningitis (brain infection).

Escherichia coli:

coli infections can cause diarrhea, secondary urinary tract infections, respiratory illnesses, pneumonia, and other diseases.

Trichinella:

Most commonly associated with pork, the Trichinella worm is a parasite. Exposure to Trichinella can result in symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fever, fatigue, and stomach pains.

Preventing the spread of these illnesses requires our continued dedication to supporting safety in the food industry.

Forpak Technical Support and Extra Maintenance Services for Your Food Packaging Equipment

The global food industry has some of the most rigorous safety standards compared to most other types of production. Not only do these standards and regulations apply to the product, equipment, and factory practices, but also to the shipping, storage, distribution, and other business processes. Down to particulars like the shelf life of packaging materials, the food industry imposes requirements and sets standards meant to protect the consumer, the manufacturer, and the planet. While these regulations are strict, they are critical for a reliable, safe, and sustainable industry that can feed the world. A large part of the food industry that can make or break safety standards is the packaging process. Food products are harvested and distributed on a wide-scale global network for today’s cosmopolitan, internationalized consumers. Packing such a range of food items for shipping and storage in all kinds of climates is a challenge that packaging engineers and food processing facilities have met in many ways. With our own engineers and packing experts, Forpak works with facilities in the bakery, pizza, and meat industries to provide innovative solutions to the world’s food packaging equipment obstacles.

Food Packaging Solutions Protect Workers

As computerized systems, software, and hardware technology continue to develop today, most industries have started to integrate more automation into production facilities. Robots and other automated systems are critical parts of even the smallest manufacturing or processing plant. Because of the increased use of automation, the way the human workforce operates has changed over the last ten to twenty years. Production line workers who previously spent their days performing repetitive manual duties can now dedicate their time and skills to higher-level projects. At Forpak, we support this change in the food industry with our innovative food packaging solutions. Our designs provide automated systems for conveyor belt packing lines, including sorting, laning, stacking, transfers, and rejection capabilities. We also provide custom designs engineered for specialized functions and facility spaces when needed.

Food Packaging Solutions

Not only do automated food packaging solutions eliminate the risk of human contamination, improve packing precision, save time, and support sanitation in a food handling facility, they also protect worker safety in a number of ways.

Protecting Workers

Removing workers from roles that can be accomplished faster and more accurately with automated technology protects workers from the following:

Injuries from repetitive motion:

The traditional factory assembly line requires a significant amount of repetitive motion. Workers often develop chronic injuries and conditions from those daily repetitions, such as carpal tunnel, tendonitis, and bursitis. Automated systems can perform those repetitive motions, preventing potential long-term injuries.

Back injuries:

Many factory jobs require workers to lift heavy materials, often over 50 lbs., frequently. While workers might adjust to these conditions and develop more ergonomic ways of moving heavy objects, back injuries are still the most common workplace injury in many industries. Automated systems can reduce or eliminate the need for workers to move heavy materials in a facility.

Injuries from fatigue:

With increased use of automation, workers have significantly fewer physically demanding jobs. The physical demand on workers prior to the integration of automated systems often led to fatigue-related injuries towards the end of a production shift. Automated systems help keep workers more alert and less exhausted throughout the day.

Exposure to hazardous conditions:

There are many kinds of facilities where hazardous or extreme conditions are required for production or are a result of the manufacturing process. In the food industry, workers can often be exposed to freezing temperatures and processing elements such as boiling water. Automated systems ensure less harm and safer workplace settings while maintaining better accuracy.

COVID-19:

Finally, automated systems have proven highly effective in protecting workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to automation, facilities can keep workers at a distance, which prevents the spread of the virus and allows for greater sanitation between shifts.

Making smart adjustments in all kinds of food packaging equipment can continually improve the way packing facilities meet sustainability and sanitation standards. In particular, our reject systems can significantly reduce inaccuracies that lead to food waste and improve hygiene on the production line.

Reject Module System

Forpak has designed a unique reject module system that can be quickly and easily installed onto existing belt systems. In fact, the Forpak Reject Module can be installed and removed without taking apart belting, which limits the need for maintenance and cleaning. It’s also a lightweight design and can extend the overall lifetime of sensors and belts with discrepant product removal and product diversion.

Less Food Waste

The automated reject system pinpoints products that don’t fit tight standards, using laser systems to measure dimensions and other discrepancies. With automated, continuous rejection for discrepant products and programmable product diversion on any production line, facilities will see superior sanitation and less food waste.

Sanitation

Our reject system increases sanitation with its full wash-down capabilities, thanks to NEMA 4X watershed control enclosures, stainless steel components, and anti-harborage designs. It also reduces the risk of contamination between products and limits packaging inaccuracies that can cause increased human exposure to food items. An ergonomic design with a flat belt path protects the smooth transition of discrepant goods, preventing broken particles of products from lingering until the next cleaning.

Time Saver

In addition to promoting sanitation, our reject systems save facilities time, energy, and material costs. Rejecting discrepant products or following diversion programs helps eliminate food waste at the consumer level.

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.

Harborage: What It Is and How We Reduce Sanitation Problems with Our Food Assembly Equipment

Maintaining sanitation on a commercial level is one of the most important standards food industry companies and manufacturers should meet. The  U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease and Control (CDC), and many other global organizations set requirements and standard operating procedures for every type of player in the food industry. These include setting regulations for farms, food shippers, processors, packers, storage providers, stores, commercial distributors, commercial kitchens, and companies that manufacture equipment used at any step of the process. At Forpak, we design and build innovative solutions for food packaging equipment that will be used in facilities in the bakery, meat, and pizza industries. Our food assembly equipment features intelligent controls, full wash-down capabilities, quality control systems, and overall efficiency for automated stackers, conveyors, autotransfers, laners, sorters, and discrepant product rejection. We also work with clients who require unique equipment for their facilities, designing custom products that can be easily integrated into existing factory settings. All our equipment can be installed quickly and easily in current facilities or new workspaces, and our preventative maintenance program provides ongoing support to all customers.

Food Assembly Equipment

One of the great benefits of our food assembly equipment designs and their ability to receive full sanitary wash-down and cleaning is the elimination of harborage and other potential risks to food safety. Harborage, in particular, is a danger to food safety and the hygiene of any food processing facility.

Definition of Harborage Pertaining to Food Safety

While the word harborage can be a positive term in regards to shelter for ships and other vessels or as a description of a safe place, it quickly becomes negative when applied to the food industry. Harborage in food processing facilities or equipment refers to any place where pests, bacteria, old food particles, viruses, and any other dangerous contaminants can hide. Harborage is often used to define places where larger pests like rodents and insects can find shelter, but it also includes microscopic organisms that can contribute to the spread of foodborne diseases. For example, bacteria like E. coli, Salmonella, and Trichinella carried in food products can all cause serious illness. These bacteria and many other pathogens can be eliminated by removing potential harborage and improving sanitation practices.

Reduce Risk of Harborage

Forpak equipment reduces the risks of harborage in any facility thanks to watertight NEMA 4X Watershed Enclosures, stainless steel parts, and modular belting. Building with these components allows all of our equipment to be washed down with powerful cleaning solutions and heavy-duty spray. Not only does this increase hygiene in your facility, it also reduces production downtime because it speeds up cleaning protocols.

Food Processing

In the food processing industry, hundreds of hygienic packing materials have been developed over time. Today, countless polymer, paper, cardboard, foil, glass, metal, ceramic, and even biodegradable materials are manufactured specifically for food-safe packaging. We design our equipment to work with multiple kinds of food packaging solutions, including the following.

Boxes:

Boxes are one of the most commonly used systems in food packing, and consequently, they come in a wide variety. They are made from paperboard, including solid bleached sulfate (SBS) and coated unbleached kraft (CUK) paperboard; corrugated cardboards with varying level of fluting and wall thickness; plastics that can be recycled or reused; and rigid boxes. While typically made from paper or cardboard materials, rigid boxes are condensed to be about two to four times thicker than any corrugated or paperboard containers. Most food products do not require rigid box packaging, but select high-end goods or very fragile foods do use these systems.

Bags:

Most bags used to package food products are made from a thin, typically plastic or foil-sealed material. Plastic, or poly, bags are durable, light, and highly customizable. Bags can be fabricated with many different sizes, shapes, and printed designs while remaining cost-effective and often recyclable. Poly bags for packing food can also include security features such as tape attachments or holes for carrying and hanging. Foil-sealed bags are useful for maintaining flavor and protecting food from bacteria and UV light exposure. This keeps products from spoiling or losing nutrients.

Food Packaging Solutions

Other food packaging solutions include cans, cartons, pallets, trays, and wrappers, but boxes and bags are the most prevalent systems.
