The food processing industry can be confident in the food-grade integrity of Summit’s product because we hold ourselves to the highest possible standards. All of Summit’s food grade products are registered with NSF® for H1 application (lubricants with incidental food contact) and most of our food grade products are also Kosher approved, Halal certified and CFIA accepted. In 2008, Summit was registered by NSF as the first company in North America (and second in the world) to be ISO 21469 certified. This certification emphasizes Summit's focus on food safety and gives our customers further confidence in the quality of our products.
Many of the negative traits often associated with food grade products -- shorter lubricant life, more equipment wear, etc. – do not apply at Summit. By using our extensive experience in the lubrication business and by applying the latest technologies, our research and development team has created a line of food safe, H1 products that meet or exceed the performance of conventional lubricants.
Our products can be used in any application that requires a food grade products (many times it’s required by law), including the production of canned goods, frozen foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, bread, milk, etc. Food grade specifications also apply in health care products such as toothpaste, creams, cough syrup, etc. All these are taken into the body and the production of each should be as safe as possible.
