Food-grade lubricants manufacturer Rocol says it is now the UK’s first ISO 21469:2006 certified lubricants producer, which provides independent assurance that products have been formulated, manufactured and supplied hygienically and safely.

It is a first step towards conforming with major supermarket, European Food Safety Inspection Service and British Retail Consortium audit requirements.

Products in the Foodlube range are already National Sanitation Foundation (NSF)-H1 registered, which specifies the hygiene requirements for the formulation, use and handling of lubricants that may come into contact with products during manufacture.

ISO 21469:2006 builds on the product-specific NSF-H1 standard to represent another important layer of safety approval. It means that products are manufactured to stringent recipe and hygiene standards using good manufacturing practices, dedicated equipment and strict handling procedures.

Each product has been independently verified and tested by an NSF inspector. It is then deemed safe for incidental food contact and certified as being manufactured only from Food and Drug Administration listed ingredients, which are free from animal-derived materials, nut oils, soya, dairy and genetically modified ingredients.
