Hygienic Design Ferdinand Schwabe


3-A Sanitary Standards Inspection Services

  • Are you a fabricator of food and beverage equipment or special dairy equipment like e.g. valves, pumps, sensors, tanks, fittings or even complete filling machines?
  • Are you concerned about hygienic design and usage of materials that conform with federal regulations?
  • Are you striving for higher market shares in US American or Asian markets?
  • Do you know the probably oldest organization on this planet that publishes hygienic equipment standards? 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc. located in Virginia, USA?
  • Did you ever consider to get a 3-A Symbol License for your products?

Licensed equipment which bears the 3-A logo is especially important for dairy plants because it’s referenced in the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO)
as well as in “7 CFR 58 Subpart B– General Specifications for Dairy Plants Approved for USDA Inspection and Grading Service“.

Many dairies and other food processors have specified a 3-A symbol license in their purchasing specifications for equipment.
Would you like to belong to the group of potential suppliers? Then become a Symbolholder.
