Scientifically Proven Sanitation Protects People, Plants and Brands

The margin of error for food processing businesses continues to shrink by the day. Whether it be microbial issues threatening the safety of products, or a global pandemic threatening the health of workers, there are enormous risks associated with the cleanliness of processing plants and operations as a whole.

It is clear that good is just not ‘good enough’ anymore when it comes to cleaning, including both janitorial services and plant sanitation. The risks are too high, and the uncertainty is too great with a fragmented, unverified approach.

The truth is that the future of the industry depends on more than just trust, it depends on science. This includes scientifically tested products and processes that can prove effectiveness in protecting the health and safety of people, products and brands.

Our team at PSSI has spent more than 40 years perfecting the art of sanitation, using science as the backbone of our approach. We’ve supported hundreds of food processors over the years, including the development of successful mitigation plans for some of the industry’s most complex microbial issues. This includes a comprehensive sanitation strategy for food processors around the most recent COVID-19 pandemic.

With lives and businesses at stake, our team understands the critically important nature of our work and the need for perfection. And this is what our Validated PSSI Protection seal represents.

The seal symbolizes our dedication and integrity to verifying the job is done right, but also a deeper level of scientific testing by third-party labs validating that our process is effective. This includes our documented 8-Steps of Sanitation and microbial hazard mitigation process that were proven to effectively prevent and remove the SARS-CoV-2 virus across all surfaces.

Our company uses science not only to develop effective products and sanitation processes, but also to test our own performance to ensure we are living up to our commitment and pledge. And in uncertain times where there aren’t many answers, we dig in to find them.

This includes a unique collaboration between our in-house Food Safety Solutions and Chemical Innovations teams who work together to develop customized plans. In the case of COVID-19, this included a rapid response team and integration of exclusive products like PCI PURE Hard Surface sanitizer and Microbarrier Elite™ to build a scientifically validated program.

“Protection is more than products. It’s a partnership centered around developing customized solutions for what is in front of us today, but also using a deeper level of science and technology to prepare for the future,” said Ulyana Stebelska, Chemist and PSSI R&D Director.

Protection is no longer just about products when it comes to processing plants either. It is about your people and your brand.

The COVID-19 outbreak has changed the way businesses across the food processing industry will operate forever and has raised the bar even higher on the standard of protection. It is important for all businesses to be digging deeper, asking harder questions and working to understand the details behind sanitation processes.

The key to protection is being proactive. And being proactive means using science to test and prove solutions ahead of time. That is our commitment as one of the industry’s leading sanitation and food safety specialists and how we provide an unmatched level of protection for our partners.
