iGPS’ Platform is the Most Hygienic Choice
Food contamination is on the rise in today’s increasingly complex supply chain. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 48 million Americans are sickened from tainted food each year, resulting in 3,000 deaths. Food contamination also presents other dangers: litigation, negative publicity, and long-term brand damage, all of which can put a company at risk.
iGPS is setting a new standard in pallet hygiene. Our platform won’t absorb liquids, has no nails to puncture packaging, is impervious to insects, and is easily cleaned.
Studies commissioned by the FDA have found that “broken boards and popped nails” in wood pallets are a risk factor in food contamination.
Wood is porous by nature, and liquids raise the risk of cross-contamination and transmission of pathogens
Wood is susceptible to insect infestation and plastic is not. iGPS platforms are never treated with pesticides or fungicides, including TBP and TBA.
