Food & Beverage Industry
Plastic materials are used in many types of food processing machines, including chutes, hoppers, tanks, and conveyors. Cutting boards, rollers, guide rails, and storage containers also require food-grade plastics, so it’s important to use the right food contact materials for the given food processing application.
Here are the benefits of using food-grade plastics and our capabilities at National Plastics & Seals.
Benefits of Food & Beverage Plastic Fabrication Solutions
