Our customers can trust DAR PRO Solutions to provide safe and efficient service that helps keep them in compliance with all applicable regulatory laws and practices. Our fleet, which is among the top 50 largest privately-owned fleets in the US, operates under strict Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. Our drivers undergo regular safety training and our on-board computerized logistics assures efficient scheduling and routing. Our national network of processing facilities all operate under HACCP and GMP program guidelines, verified by third-party and internal audits. We stay up-to-date on applicable Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and municipal regulations governing grease traps, maintaining complete service records that are available at any time for inspection. We, or our third party partners, are able to repurpose up to 70% of the trap material we remove into various renewable energy solutions; our customers can be assured any unusable trap material is disposed of in a safe, secure and legal manner at licensed disposal facilities.
To consistently produce quality feed and fuel ingredients, it is important we are aware of the raw materials we take to our processing plants. Only materials from approved suppliers are used for processing at our plants, and the raw materials are inspected during unloading for any physical or chemical contamination. This is particularly important for our fat and bone/meat collection. Records are maintained to trace materials through the production process to customer receipt to document a transparent supply chain at all times. Samples from all rendered fat production runs and incoming shipments are routinely tested using gas chromatography for the presence of chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides and PCBs. Our service technicians are fully trained in the proper and safe procedures for transferring used cooking oil to our collection vehicles and how to service a grease trap in compliance with regulations.
At DAR PRO Solutions, Ingredients and Bioenergy, we take our commitment to integrity, safety and environmental stewardship very seriously. Part of that commitment is abiding by all applicable regulations at the local, state and federal levels. Our plants implement prevention-based programs defined by the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) food safety model to provide for contaminant-free products that are safe to use. Our fat and protein ingredients are produced using Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) in compliance with all applicable provisions of the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Department of Agriculture regulations. Our products are tested extensively to comply with standards set by diverse government and industry organizations.
DAR PRO Solutions is committed to providing safe, efficient service that takes the responsibility of ‘grease compliance’ off the shoulders of our customers. Our drivers are trained professionals, our modern fleet is efficient and reliable, and our service is proactive in complying with local laws and regulations.
