RONCO is the First Glove Manufacturer in North America to Obtain ISO 22000 Certification for Food Safety Management Systems

Concord, Canada, July 18, 2015 --( RONCO, Canada’s leading manufacturer of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) has successfully renewed the ISO 22000 certification for Food Safety Management System (FSMS) for the fourth year. This certification affirms RONCO’s status as an approved manufacturer of PPE and plastic products for food manufacturing, processing and service customers.

RONCO is the first manufacturer of gloves and plastic products in North America to achieve this prestigious Food Safety qualification. The ISO 22000 certification is a validation that RONCO’s manufacturing, storage and delivery processes comply with global standards of food safety. ISO 22000 is a standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization that can be applied to any organization in the food chain. This standard incorporates the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) principles.

New guidelines from CFIA make RONCO’s ISO 22000 certification more relevant in today’s food safety landscape. This certification guarantees that PPE that comes in direct contact with food is safe and reduces risks of food contamination.

Mr. Ron Pecchioli, President, RONCO said, “As a conscientious manufacturer, our ISO 22000 certification is a commitment to our customers and end-users. We recognize that PPE is an integral part of the food chain and want to give food manufacturers the confidence that by using RONCO products they will be safeguarding their food chain.”

Nitech® is an example of a product from RONCO that is manufactured according to the ISO 22000 principles. Today Nitech is a glove of choice for several food manufacturing and processing companies across Canada.

RONCO’s products are available across North America via an authorized distributor network.
