Dempsey Leads Discussion on Hygienically Clean Standard

Hygienically Clean certificationAt the March 10th, 2016, ARTA Conference in Orlando, Florida, Mark Lewis, Corporate Sales Manager for Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply, teamed up with TRSA consultant and George Washington University instructor David Goldsmith, Ph.D. to discuss the Hygienically Clean Food Service Certification program. Goldsmith and Lewis outlined the advantages of the Hygienically Clean program for rental textiles including napkins, tablecloths, aprons, and towels used in restaurants and other eating places.

They noted that Hygienically Clean Certification, which recognizes commercial laundries that commit to cleanliness through third-party, quantified biological testing and inspection, has advantages over a rival program sponsored by NSF International. Advantages to laundry customers include fully independent, third-party testing and inspection of each plant that is certified.
