Little more than 12 months after launching in the UK, Packaging Services Europe Ltd (PSE) has achieved ISO 22000 food safety management standard. The accreditation demonstrates the leading reusable transit packaging support service provider’s commitment to excellence in the supply chain.
ISO 22000 is more than just a quality management system for the food industry; it also incorporates HACCP and other preventive plans that ensure food safety. The certification has been awarded to PSE for its ongoing commitment to ensuring the reduction and elimination of food safety risks in its pallet wash operations.
PSE’s continuous drive for quality innovation and best practice customer service has played a pivotal role in its success to date, with clients representing industries as diverse as food and drink, medical, automotive and engineering.
Andrew Parkinson, joint managing director at PSE, said: “Our ISO 22000 accreditation is a testament to our focus on providing industry-leading customer service. Since setting up the PSE business just over a year ago, we have worked hard to establish and maintain operations which provide confidence to customers and other stakeholders (through the ISO 22000 certification process) that PSE controls food safety standards.
“By working at very precise temperatures, carefully handling water pressure, specifying water flow and focusing on managed drying processes, we are able to deliver a high-quality wash solution. We also make use of ATP microbial testing, verified by the food and pharmaceutical industries, to ensure packaging is returned to the supply chain meeting the agreed standard.”
PSE delivers a fast and flexible service through its network of facilities strategically located across the UK. With further locations planned, PSE is committed to helping customers deliver their assumptions on asset utilization and the lifespan of their reusable transit packaging.
