If you have previously browsed the DreamMaker Hot Dog Carts website, you may have noticed that many of our hot dogs vending carts are now also available as NSF certified models. The availability of these models is getting especially important these days because there are so many more locations where the state, county or city health department regulations are now requiring a genuine NSF Certified vending cart. It’s becoming quite common these days for us to hear about new states or city municipalities that are updating their regulations to require this special Certification of Quality Achievement. At this point, you may be wondering what exactly is NSF Certification, and what does it mean in relation to a hot dog cart or other mobile food vending cart. Well, to answer that question I would like to discuss this in much more detail for you, and hopefully answer many of your questions.
NSF International is a privately owned company that was founded in 1944 and is tasked with writing public sanitation standards and creating scientific laboratory testing methods for these specific sanitation standards. “NSF international” is now a very large global company that serves the entire world, but was originally a company that served the United States. NSF International was previously known as the “National Sanitation Foundation”, thus the timeless and lasting moniker “NSF” is still used as the corporation’s primary brand today.
