MPI Approved Products

Your guide to MPI Approval Codes and how they relate to compliance in Food Safety.

At Proquip, we understand how important it is to maintain high standards in compliancy and food safety when it comes to your cleaning products.

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), among its many responsibilities, exists to ensure the food New Zealand produces is safe for consumption. This extends to restricting the cleaning products that may be used in and around food production areas, to ensure no contamination occurs.
