What are food grade lubricants?

Food grade (also known as food safe) lubricants are any lubricants, oils or greases considered safe for incidental contact with substances that may be consumed by humans or animals. Items such as food, drinks or tablets are examples that require food grade lubricants.

What if my lubricants are not food safe?

If you’re using lubricants that are not safe for contact with consumables, you are breaking the law and must switch to a food grade lubricant immediately.

See if your oils are up to standard with our lubricant health checks

If your lubricants or oils are not fit for purpose, you may be breaking the law and can affect the performance of your machinery, reduce their lifespan and diminish their output. Additionally, using products that are not food grade could potentially be causing harm to life.

We offer both standard and premium lubricant health checks to help you determine the condition of your machinery’s lubrication and if it’s affecting efficiency – we’ll also make actionable recommendations if your oils receive a caution or serious health rating.

Call 0330 123 1144 to speak to a member of our team and book a lubricant health check today.
