Meat, Poultry, and Seafood Handling Conveyors from mk North America
Food handling and production is among the most heavily-regulated industries in the nation (and for good reason).
Meat, poultry, and seafood processing in particular face significant regulations from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), and other agencies. These regulations affect nearly every stage of the meat and poultry production process from slaughter to packaging and shipping.
In many cases, specialty equipment is required to comply with USDA guidelines, including hand-held tools and mechanical belt conveyors.
If you’re in the market for sanitary belt conveyors for the meat, poultry, or seafood industries, mk North’s America’s versatile line of CleanMove conveyors are a great option.
