Douglas Machines Corp. is a leading manufacturer of washing and sanitizing equipment used in the commercial fish & seafood processing industry. Our machines comply with regulatory food safety standards such as FSMA, HACCP and GMP (Good Manufacturing Processes) to ensure that your seafood products are produced without physical, allergenic, chemical and microbiological hazards.
For 40 years, Douglas Machines has worked alongside seafood processing companies involved in the production, importation/wholesaling, and retailing of fish and seafood.
The industry requires a high standard of cleanliness, because the crates might contain fish scales, fat, bones and ink residue that can lead to pathogens and cross contamination.
Cleaning is important for two reasons, the elimination of bacteria to prevent food poisoning, and the reduction of spoilage. Where food is concerned clean containers and equipment mean less bacterial contamination, which leads to a safer and better quality product that keeps longer. This is true for a very perishable commodity like seafood.
Whether it is an oyster container, fish box, seafood pallet box or bucket, Douglas has a machine that will efficiently clean and effectively sanitize every type of container used in the industry.
These companies trust Douglas with their container washing needs because we provide maximum productivity, decreased energy, chemical and water costs, increased shelf life for equipment, tools and utensils, and reduced manpower for regular washing.
