Food Processing Uniforms That Are Compliant with Safety Standards

Our food safety uniform programs are built to fit your operation’s needs, while keeping your business compliant with industry regulations, with quality garments specialized to eliminate risk of food contamination.

We’re the first and only uniform rental company in North America to successfully attain the ISO22000:2018 Food Safety Management System certification. This verifies our dedication and our ability to eliminate food safety hazards, while implementing systems in our operations that provide safe garments for employees working in food processing and manufacturing.

ISO 22000:2018 requires organizations to:

  • Plan, implement, operate, maintain and update a food safety management system aimed at providing products that, according to their intended use, are safe for the consumer. 
  • Demonstrate compliance with applicable statutory and regulatory food safety requirements.
  • Evaluate and assess customer requirements and demonstrate conformity with those mutually agreed on customer requirements relating to food safety, in order to enhance customer satisfaction.
  • Effectively communicate food safety issues to their suppliers, customers, and relevant interested parties in the food chain.
  • Ensure that the organization conforms to its stated food safety policy
  • Demonstrate conformity to relevant interested parties.
  • Maintain registration of its food safety management system by passing annual audits from an external organization.

Because of this certification, Northern Uniform provides third-party audits as part of our uniform rental program. 
This is the best way to ensure your business’s safety for employees, customers and vendors alike.

The Benefits of Northern’s P.A.S.S. | Food Program

Protective Apparel Safety System

Northern Uniform offers a unique program designed to streamline costs and provide full documentation for the development and maintenance of food safety workwear.

Our P.A.S.S. | Food program is a verified and traceable, fully documented, and third-party audited process. Our ISO 22000:2018 registration covers services provided under this program, which is a significant enhancement to a standard uniform service.

Northern's P.A.S.S. | Food Program

Every P.A.S.S. | Food garment that passes through our plant is distinguished by a yellow-backed barcode. This identifies each garment as a P.A.S.S. program piece, which allows us to recognize them at a glimpse and handle the garment according to our ISO 22000 procedures. This, coupled with our RFID systems, enables tracking and managing of inventory like no one else can offer.

We verify that our P.A.S.S. | Food garments are allergen free by conducting random protein swabs of every food safety delivery.
