In order to create a more cohesive and uniform safety standards for resusable containers, the Reusable Packaging Association has established a new industry-wide committee.
The three major providers of RPCs (IFCO Systems, Tosca Ltd, and Polymer Logistics) are all members of the committee and will work to determine best practices, then follow them in order to increase food safety.
“The reusables industry already has rigorous cleaning and testing protocols that meet or exceed accepted standards, and these have proven to be highly effective,” said Paul Pederson, director of food safety & compliance, IFCO Systems, and committee chair. “However, we want to establish common and public standards that will further increase confidence in the sanitation and food safety of RPCs.”
