IFCO RPCs support food safety
The IFCO Wash Cycle RPC cleaning process and Diversey™ guarantee
Through the IFCO Wash Cycle RPC cleaning process, our RPCs are washed according to IFCO’s rigorous global standards and in accordance with the IFCO HACCP program. IFCO's service centers are equipped with specialized equipment to effectively sanitize and dry RPCs. IFCO is proud of its ongoing collaboration with suppliers, academia and field experts to continue to create more efficient and effective technical solutions
All IFCO service centers use Diversey™ detergents and disinfectants, who ensures the hygiene of all IFCO RPCs washed with Diversey™ detergents and disinfectants through an integral cleaning and sanitation program. Diversey™ has provided IFCO with a guarantee that RPCs properly cleaned and disinfected with Diversey™ agents will have residue levels of all microorganisms, toxic substances, and other impurities compliant with maximum levels established by regulations in the country of operation.
Additionally, the use of RPCs properly cleaned and disinfected with Diversey™ agents will not result in microbial contamination or the transfer of toxic substances or other impurities (e.g. pesticide residues) from the IFCO containers to the products they contain.
The guarantee covers the following:
- Food born pathogenic germs and toxin producing micro-organism
- Listeria monocytogeneses
- Eschericia coli serotypes (STEC, EHEC 0104:H4, O157:H7, 0111:H2)
