CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The team behind the Green Drain, an environmentally friendly water-free trap seal, has announced that the company has officially earned their National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certification. The Green Drain promotes food safety and sanitation to public health by preventing the transmission of dangerous pathogens through its product composition and methodology.
The majority of commercial kitchens in the U.S. are equipped with products that are virtually all NSF certified. This means that they have passed numerous NSF testing procedures for material safety, design, construction and product performance. They also must be commercial dishwasher safe, and must not be likely to harbor bacteria of any kind. An NSF certification is used to represent a manufacturer of foodservice products that only uses FDA-approved raw materials.
"We have been working diligently to create and promote a product that enhances safety," said Jason Bocchino, CEO of the Green Drain. "Ultimately, these certifications are a reflection of our efforts thus far. We want our clients to use our product to protect their employees and customers. We also want to help eliminate what could be yet another concern during what has become such a stressful time for restaurant and business owners."
