What Our Protein Harvest Customers Are Saying

At Birko, we take food safety seriously, and nothing is more important to us than making sure your products are safe, secure and pathogen-free. And our level of service and care is second to none. Take it from these customers who partner with Birko on food safety.


“Birko knows laundry and their service is unmatched. We all know how stressful it can be to install and start up new equipment, that’s why it was so great when Birko took on helping us with our new laundry and chemical pumping system. Thanks to the Birko team, we had a smooth and successful startup of our new system. We can’t afford any downtime with our laundry so I appreciate that they regularly monitor our pumps and formulations which they report back to us so that we can ensure that everything is running smooth, safe and efficient.”

“The Automatic Mixing Station gives me confidence that we are maintaining consistent, reliable intervention spray dilution rates. The automation has allowed us to experience an increase in production flow, and a savings in labor. Birko’s equipment is durable and reliable, and because of its value to Lower Foods, we are continuing to purchase and install additional units on our plant floor.”

Mike Mortensen, Plant Manager
Lower Foods, Salt Lake City, UT

It’s important to have a good sanitation partner such as Birko to ensure that we do not present an atmosphere for bacterial micro growth. Birchwood would recommend Birko as being a partner in food safety because it’s more than just a chemical supplier. Birko offers a whole line of assistance.”

Birko has been a solution provider to our business for over 30 years. Their full complement of chemicals covers all of our needs, but it is the people that have kept me coming back to Birko.
