FAQ How are Plastic Pallets FDA Approved

Plastic Pallets FDA Approved

Plastic pallets are a popular alternative to wood pallets in various industries, including the food and beverage industry, due to their durability, cleanliness, and ease of handling. However, when it comes to food and beverage storage and transportation, safety is of the utmost importance. That is why plastic pallets that are used in the food and beverage industry must meet certain standards set by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). FDA approved plastic pallets are a great alternative to wood pallets.

One of the primary considerations for FDA approval is the material used to manufacture the plastic pallets. The FDA only approves plastic pallets made from materials that are safe for contact with food. The materials must be non-toxic and free from any harmful substances that could contaminate food

Material Ingredients
