IMPROVE HYGIENE

Our platform won’t absorb liquids, has no nails to puncture packaging, is impervious to insects and is easily cleaned. No wonder it’s the world’s only pallet to receive NSF Food Equipment Certification.

Food contamination is a frightening thing, and it’s on the rise in today’s increasingly complex food supply chain. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 48 million Americans are sickened from tainted food each year, resulting in 3000 deaths.* Food contamination presents a host of dangers for businesses involved as well: Litigation, negative publicity and long term brand damage, all of which could put a business’s existence at risk.

So why take chances? iGPS’ platform was designed to take pallet hygiene to a whole new level, dramatically reducing the risks associated with wood pallets.

NO NAILS OR SPLINTERS

Studies commissioned by the FDA have found that “broken boards and popped nails” in wood pallets are a risk factor in food contamination.

IMPERVIOUS TO LIQUIDS

Wood is absorptive by nature, and liquids penetrating wood raise the risk of cross-contamination and transmission of pathogens, like E.Coli, Listeria, and Salmonella.

NO PESTICIDES OR FUNGICIDES

Wood is susceptible to insect infestation and plastic is not. iGPS platforms are never treated with pesticides or fungicides, including TBP and TBA.

NSF FOOD EQUIPMENT CERTIFICATION

The platform is the world’s only rental pallet to receive NSF’s Food Equipment Certification, confirming that our platform conforms to the highest established food protection and sanitation requirements for materials, design, fabrication and construction of food handling and processing equipment. Given the inherent nature of its materials, no wood pallet can meet this standard.
