Food safety provider PSSI offers COVID-19-based sanitation info for processing facilities

Food safety service and product provider PSSI is sharing its expertise on sanitation and decontamination in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

COVID-19 has created unprecedented challenges for all industries, including food processing and production businesses. Like all crises, planning for every scenario is critical.

PSSI CEO Dan Taft shares his thoughts on customers’ most pressing concerns and how the food processing industry has been impacted through a Q&A available on PSSI’s website.

“I think it is important to plan ahead and work in partnership with sanitation services to protect any scenarios that could play out,” said Dan Taft, President and CEO. “We know the situation is constantly changing, so we have to be ready to adapt and change with it.”

Partnering with their chemical company, PSSI Chemical Innovations, provides food processors with the right chemicals and resources to combat COVID-19.

“Our team members’ health and safety are always our top priority,” Taft said. “To that end, we have implemented extra health and safety measures across our business.”
