Innovative new food program reduces risk of contamination

CRC Industries’ new Greenlight Food Safety program offers the food industry a complete food grade compliant MRO lubricant management program.

Recognising that the food industry, whether growing, producing, processing or packaging, requires the most stringent conformity of compliance, CRC Industries has developed a complete food industry MRO management program. 

CRC’s Greenlight Food Safety program is designed to minimise the risk of contamination from maintenance products, as well as making identification of food-industry compliant products far easier all the while simplifying the audit process. 

CRC’s Manager Food & Beverage Industry Program, Steve Samuels, says the program is an exciting new development for the company, and one that is eagerly anticipated by the food industry 

Samuels says the Greenlight program will compliment or improve a food company’s current QA programs including HACCP compliance.

 “The visual identification program utilises CRC’s unique product labelling system to readily identify their level of conformity, thus maximising compliance and reducing the risk of contamination.”

Samuels says the Greenlight Food Safety program aims to not only reduce the risk of contamination from a maintenance product, but also can reduce cost and inventory duplication and invoicing, while maximising regulatory compliance..

The Greenlight Food Safety program is designed to work in conjunction with the company’s Food Grade Product Range.

“CRC offers an extensive range of H1 Food Grade compliant products, in fact we are able to offer the food industry over 75 NSF H1 compliant products”

“Using simple product names, which relate to the application, the labelling system also clearly shows compliance levels for each product, and utilises a unique traffic light colour-coded system, coupled with QR Code with all information pertaining to the products, including SDS, allergen certificates, NSF approvals and technical information. We also assist when it comes to compliance, by simplifying auditing procedures.”

Training programs vital

Samuels says the training component of the program ensures food companies use correct products, in the food production areas of the facility. All training is conducted by CRC’s TAE Cert IV trainers, which ensures complete understanding of the program, through detailed training.

“Implementing the Greenlight Food Safety program offers companies a complete range of H1 maintenance products with the unique labels, visual aids including a labelled product storage cabinet, Greenlight Checkpoint signs, wall charts, and a highly-visible Greenlight Food Safety program folder to store relevant literature,” Samuels said.

NSF International accreditation

Samuels points out that all CRC Food Grade products conform to NSF Standards, and are compliant to the NSF food grade product rating system.

“CRC Products are manufactured to the highest of standards (ISO 9001:2008) that work hand in hand with our Greenlight Food Safety program, with easy identification of compliant ratings for each product in the range,” Samuels said. 

Samuels says choosing a product certified by NSF lets users know the company complies with strict standards and procedures imposed by NSF.

“From extensive product testing and material analyses to unannounced plant inspections, every aspect of a product’s development is thoroughly evaluated before it can earn NSF certification”

“Most importantly, NSF certification is not a one-time event, but involves regular on-site inspections of manufacturing facilities and regular re-testing of products to ensure that they continue to meet the same high standards required to maintain certification over time” Samuels said.

The CRC range of food grade products have been accredited and endorsed for use in food production by HACCP Australia, and to further strengthen a company’s QA programs, the Greenlight Food Safety Program has also been accredited by HACCP Australia for use in the food industry to improve food safety when it comes to MRO maintenance lubricants.
