Birko, a Diversey Company, Unveils GDI Integrated Facility Services Partnership at IPPE 2022, Bringing Unified Labor and Chemical Services to Food Processors

Companies come together to reduce the risk of pathogens, protect the food chain and save lives

HENDERSON, Colo.Birko, a Diversey Company and leader in providing integrated sanitation solutions, will be launching its partnership with GDI Integrated Facility Services at the upcoming International Production Processing Expo (IPPE) to bring streamlined labor and superior chemical services to food processors, empowering them to feel confident in producing high-quality, safe products. This partnership will combine Birko’s industry-leading chemical solutions and equipment with GDI’s consistent sanitation services to protect processing facilities and the food chain.

When processors choose this integrated sanitation program, Birko and GDI will conduct an audit of the company’s plant to locate potential food safety risks and find opportunities for optimizing chemical use. Birko and GDI will then provide recommendations and an integrated plan to better improve food safety at the location, offering insight and resources every step of the way.

“Partnering with GDI brings a seamless integrated sanitation program to plants across North America,” said Mark Swanson, Co-Chairman. “With GDI’s long history of being a reliable and a trusted company in the sanitation industry, we felt this partnership was a perfect fit as we strive to make the food chain safer.”

GDI, also attending IPPE 2022 (booth BC9727), provides professional sanitation services to over 3,600 sites across North America. Acclaimed for their Master Sanitation Schedules (MSS), they offer advanced procedures and programs designed in compliance with all FDA, USDA and HACCP requirements.

In addition to launching its partnership with GDI at IPPE, Birko is also featuring its groundbreaking Elite 360® and Birko by Lagafors® suite in booth BC9723. Experts will be available to answer questions.
