Lux Ice USA has become the first and only dedicated craft ice company to receive food safe accreditation from the International Packaged Ice Association (IPIA). Lux Ice successfully passed an extensive IPIA audit conducted by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), an authority in public health standards and services that helps protect the world’s food, water, consumer products and environment since 1944.
“We are proud to become the first ice company that exclusively produces craft ice to achieve IPIA accreditation,” says Shawn Kilcoyne, Founder and Chairman at Lux. “As we expand our premium craft ice business across retail customers and into restaurants and other foodservice channels, quality and food safety will remain our top priority.”
Lux Ice USA’s proprietary production process delivers consistent quality and the ability to scale nationally to meet the demand of our consumers and customers, adds Lux Ice CEO Michael Crouse.
“Every team member at Lux Ice is passionate about producing the very best slow-melt premium ice sphere every time,” Crouse says.
Maria Maggio, Executive Director at IPIA, says the association is excited that Lux Ice has achieved IPIA accreditation.
“We have seen how committed they are to leading the craft ice industry in quality and food safety and look forward to having them as a member company at IPIA,” she says.
