Food Industry: A Culinary Symphony of Compliance

In the food industry, regulations are the secret sauce that ensures the safety and satisfaction of our beloved consumers. Our vapor polishing process has been finely tuned, like a master chef’s favorite recipe, to create a harmonious blend of compliance and quality.

Enter the stage, EC1935/2004! This star-studded European regulation lays down the law on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. Fear not, for our vapor polishing process is the perfect dance partner for EC1935/2004, waltzing gracefully across the ballroom of food safety.

How, you ask? Well, allow us to explain. The smooth, sealed surfaces created by our vapor polishing process actively reduce the risk of bacterial growth and cross-contamination. In doing so, our gastronomic-grade parts provide a delectable layer of protection for the food that graces their surfaces. It’s a match made in culinary heaven!

But that’s not all! Vapor polishing also ensures that no substances are transferred to food in quantities that could harm human health or adversely affect the taste, aroma, or texture of the food. In other words, our process not only complies with EC1935/2004 but also delivers a flawless performance worthy of a standing ovation.
