Meat processing and packaging – Nonfood Compounds: Meat and Poultry Processing | NSF

The NSF nonfood compounds registration program covers a wide range of products and chemicals frequently used in the meat and poultry processing industries. In an industry where it’s critical to minimize the risks from pathogens and other hazards, such as grease and dirt, using trusted products is vital.

From marking agents used in slaughterhouses and butcher shops to substances like scald agents to cleaning and disinfecting chemicals, our registration program enables manufacturers to show the food industry their products can be trusted.

NSF makes it easy for the meat and poultry sector to find the right chemicals. Products that are independently validated as being suitable for use in meat and poultry processing plants are listed in the NSF White BookTM. The registration program is a continuation of the USDA product approval and listing program, which is based on meeting regulatory requirements, including FDA 21 CFR, for appropriate use and ingredient and labeling review.

Find registered products in the NSF White BookTM, our online directory of registered nonfood compounds and proprietary substances.
