Certification demonstrates compliance to the widely accepted NSF International sanitation standards for commercial food equipment, components and materials
Montreal – Leading design and manufacturer of custom interiors Artitalia Group Inc has earned certification to NSF/ANSI 2 for food equipment from NSF International, a global public health and safety organization.
NSF International standards serve as the benchmarks by which all commercial foodservice equipment products are measured. Certification signifies to customers, specifiers and health departments that these products have been reviewed, tested and certified by an independent third-party organization to the industry’s leading standards and that they meet all applicable North American regulatory sanitation requirements.
To earn certification to NSF/ANSI 2 the food equipment was subject to a review, an evaluation and, where applicable, a testing process to verify the product’s compliance as stated in the NSF International standard. Certification by NSF International also included an audit of Artitalia Group’s manufacturing facility to verify compliance.
NSF International food equipment standards include requirements for material safety to ensure the product will not leach harmful chemicals into food; design and construction, to ensure the product is cleanable and is not likely to harbor bacteria; and product performance.
Artitalia Group’s food equipment (as well as related marketing materials) can now bear the NSF/ANSI sanitation mark and is listed in the online database of NSF International certified products.
“We welcome Artitalia Group on board and are happy that it has chosen to certify its food equipment to the NSF International sanitation standards,” said Orsi Dézsi, Director of Food Safety Product Certification, NSF International. “We are sure this independent demonstration of the quality of this product and its compliance with public health requirements will support the value of Artitalia Group’s brand.”
