"The food industry
adds additional
complexity and
regulation related to
both environmental
and consumer safety
issues."
Sander. But, he adds, "On the formulations side, there are actually more
additives that are approved than there
were 10-15 years ago." In 2011, the
Food Safety Modernization Act was
signed into law by President Barack
Obama. The act requires higher levels
of food-safety scrutiny for growers, harvesters and processors of food, Sander
says. While lubricant manufacturers are
not directly affected, "it trickles down
to us because our customers are the
harvesters and processors."
In addition, notes Sanders, incidental
food contact lubricants aren't only
regulated by government agencies -
religious considerations may come
into play as well. "Many lubricant
companies also carry religious ethnic
certifications that require formula
review, plant inspections and product
labeling," he said. Each, added Booth,
"imposes additional costs beyond that
for non-food-grade lubricants."

Growing Consumer Awareness
Adding to Scrutiny
Growing public awareness and interest
in food safety issues is raising the bar
and creating additional challenges for
the industry.
"People want to know what they
are putting into their bodies," said
Scott Arrington, technical director of
G&G Oil Co. Inc., a distributor of
food-grade lubricants. "With people
looking for healthier and non-allergen
choices for their foods, I believe this

carries on to the manufacturing of
their food choices and not wanting to
add any additional harmful product
into their bodies."
End users are demanding more biobased and food-grade products, says
Duckworth, increasing the complexity of
finding new and high-performance raw
material outside of traditional sources.
"With the growth of corporate
farms with increased liability and
responsibility, consumers' increased
demand for organic-growth food,
regulatory oversight and protection
will continue to increase," said
Duckworth.
Traditionally, he notes, the industry
has been primarily focused on incidental contact. Today, he said, "with this
additional demand for an organically
grown food chain, any lubricants will
need more direct-contact approvals.

With the growth of the population
and limited farms to produce, further
engineering and supply chain advancement will be required."
In addition, he said, "with the population growth, the continued depletion
of natural resources further compounds
regulatory oversight demand."
All of these factors will place
additional requirements on lubricants
in all aspects of food production and
transport, he says.

How the Industry is
Responding
At BioBlend, said Burkett, "we use
three main base oils that allow us to
meet all performance requirements in
the industry." That includes natural
esters, traditional petroleum white
oils and food-grade synthetics. "Each
