On October 5, 2016, the FDA issued a revised version of the Manufactured Food Regulatory Program Standards (MFRPS). Since 2007, each state has used these standards to ensure local food manufacturers implement practices that reduce foodborne illness hazards, which afflict as many as 48 million Americans each year.
The new MFRPS, which you can read here, include new sections and appendices, newly defined terms, and updates to current standards. What does it mean for food and beverage manufacturers? They must comply with even stricter regulations than in the previous decade to keep their operations up to code.
Our custom plastic parts for food manufacturers are made of food-grade plastic that ensures maximum hygiene and non-contamination of foodstuff. In this blog, we’ll explain the advantages of integrating custom plastic parts into food and beverage manufacturing, which go far beyond compliance with FDA standards.
Why integrate food-grade specialty plastics into augers, hoppers, rollers, sprockets, chute liners and other food processing parts? In addition to ensuring compliance with FDA regulations, your operation will benefit from:

When it comes to achieving cosmetic standards for plastic parts, CNC machining provides the most consistent, high-quality finishes and tight tolerances. Injection molding and additive machining (3D printing) are prone to certain cosmetic defects that can mar the appearance, fit, and function of plastic parts. Secondary CNC machining, however, can remove these defects and bring […]Read More »
