AmeriPride Services’ plants in Tuscumbia, Alabama, Minneapolis, Minnesota, Amarillo, Texas, and Bakersfield, California have earned the Hygienically Clean Food Safety certification, reflecting their commitment to best management practices (BMPs) in laundering as verified by on-site inspection and their capability to produce hygienically clean textiles as quantified by ongoing microbial testing.

These four facilities the AmeriPride chain join three others who previously received the Hygienically Clean Food Safety certification; the company’s Twin Falls, Idaho; Fresno, California; and St. Cloud, Minnesota laundries previously earned the designation.

Twelve of the company’s US locations have achieved the healthcare certification and its Canadian Linen and Uniform Service facility in Lethbridge, Alberta, is also Hygienically Clean Healthcare certified.

In January, Philadelphia-based Aramark Corp. announced the completion of its acquisition of AmeriPride, making AmeriPride a wholly owned subsidiary. Aramark’s uniform rental and career apparel business is headquartered in Burbank, California.
