Food Grade Compliance

Food grade audit compliance

The globally recognised ISO 21469:2006 certification ticks an important box for auditors as it provides credible, independent assurance that all ROCOL products are formulated, manufactured and supplied
hygienically and safely.

For any food and drink manufacturer using FOODLUBE lubricants,especially those reliant on leading retailers through long-term contracts, this provides a vital first step towards conforming with major supermarket, European Food Safety Inspection Service and British Retail Consortium audit

Products in the FOODLUBE range are already NSF-H1 registered, which specifies the hygiene requirements for the formulation, use and handling of lubricants that may incidentally come into contact with products during manufacture.

What is NSF ISO 21469 Certification

ISO 21469:2006 builds on the product-specific NSF-H1 standard to represent another important layer of safety approval. It means that products are manufactured to stringent recipe and hygiene standards using good manufacturing practices, dedicated equipment and strict handling procedures. Each product is hygiene assured as it has been independently verified by an NSF inspector and tested in their laboratories. It is then deemed safe for incidental food contact and certified as being manufactured only from FDA listed ingredients which are free from animal derived materials, nut oils, soya, dairy and genetically modified ingredients.

Detex X-ray & metal detectable plastic components

Building on our long-standing NSF registration for FOODLUBE and our corporate ISO 21469 certification, both of which offer crucial safety assurances about lubricant formulation, we have now become the first in the UK to add DETEX x-ray and metal detectable plastic actuators and caps on all aerosol cans.

This means that, unlike traditional aerosol packaging, all caps and actuators on FOODLUBE packs can be identified using standard x-ray or metal detection equipment like the ones from LOMA Systems should they become loose in food and drink processing areas.

Purol NSF H1 - 3H for direct food contact

PUROL is a range of non toxic lubricants designed for the effective lubrication and protection of seals, guides, bearings and blades particularly those operating in food, pharmaceutical and other clean environments where direct food contact is inevitable.

It is suitable for protecting knives and surfaces from corrosion and comes in a grease cartridge along with a fluid supplied in a trigger spray.
