Health & Safety

Premium quality starts with a focus on health and safety.

Whether for our own valued employees, the customers we’re so fortunate to serve, or a consumer enjoying our ice, delivering health and safety is unquestionably the first priority at Arctic Glacier®.

Standard-setting quality assurance.
We believe it’s crucial for our customers to have total peace of mind when it comes to our food-grade ice, especially when they need to provide quality control documentation during a food safety audit. Our manufacturing facilities keep customers compliant and confident in such cases.

We operate to the highest of quality and sanitary standards in the industry. This includes the Packaged Ice Quality Control Standards, or PIQCS, set forth by the International Packaged Ice Association. These standards are fully compliant with the Food Safety Modernization Act.

Our products undergo an annual audit by IPIA conducted by third party auditors, ensuring our products meet the required high standards to be certified a food grade safe product.

With our ice, compliance confidence comes standard. We take pride in providing this added value to our customers.

As an essential business supplier, all of our production facilities we follow the stringent guidelines set forth by IPIA and governing agencies. We meet criteria necessary for certified food-safe products, enabling us to continue to serve our customers throughout the pandemic. We follow and comply with current CDC guidelines and local mandates to safely and confidently provide the same exceptional products and services our customers have depended on for years.
