Food processing gloves are crucial for the well being and safety of the workers. Food processing is a massive industry, employing millions around the world. Washing, chopping, pasteurizing, freezing, fermenting, packaging and more may all be involved.

Food Processing

Food processing is the transformation of raw ingredients, by physical or chemical means into food, or of food into other forms. Food processing combines raw food ingredients to produce marketable food products that can be easily prepared and served by the consumer. Food processing typically involves activities such as mincing and macerating, liquefaction, emulsification, and cooking (such as boiling, broiling, frying, or grilling); pickling, pasteurization, and many other kinds of preservation; and canning or other packaging.

Some of the biggest names in business are associated with food processing; globally, companies such as PepsiCo, Nestle, Kraft Foods and Mars; in Thailand, Thai Union Group, Betagro and many others.

Health & Safety

Health and Safety are of prime concern. Firstly, some processes involve making food products safe by removing toxins, de-activating spoilage and eliminating pathogenic micro-organisms. Secondly, it is essential that finished food products leave the processing center fit for human consumption.

Protection of the food worker from occupational exposures related to food processing, and the prevention of pathogen or spoilage organism transmission from worker to product are critical and rubber gloves play an important role in these health and safety issues. TK Bosaeng Glove, South East Asia’s leading natural rubber glove manufacturer, has responded with gloves specifically designed to meet the industry’s needs.

Natural latex rubber gloves are highly regarded in the industry, offering the important qualities of material durability, strength, resistant to corrosive sanitizers, tear-resistant, elasticity, comfort, tactile sensitivity and heat-resistant. In an age, too, when manufacturers are increasingly aware of environmental issues, natural rubber gloves offer the advantage of being biodegradable.

Food & Drug Administration (FDA) requirements across the globe are stringent and exacting. At TK Bosaeng Glove, we ensure all our production processes comply with the standards set by FDA and actively pursue all necessary accreditation; these include “US FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 for food contact safe;  “KS” Mark awarded in Korea, ISO 9001: 2008 for our factory’s manufacturing processes and European Conformity CE Mark certification, the recognition that a manufacturer’s products comply with the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation; “S mark” for anti-germ penetration and anti-micro organism. We have also been awarded the Thailand Trust Mark for our products, guaranteeing Thai quality and meeting Thailand standards as a rubber gloves manufacturer.
