In addition to being a $1 trillion dollar industry Americans rely on, the U.S. also exports over $60 billion dollars a year in agricultural products. Every state relies on the food and agricultural industries in some form for their economic well-being. According to the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA), agriculture and food sectors provide over 17 percent of the jobs in our country and 15 percent of the nation’s total economic activity.
Food safety is important for many reasons. With so many jobs and the safety of so many people at stake, it’s important to understand the impact security has on these industries. Whether considering contaminants naturally entering packaging, air speeding up the natural decaying process, or even tampering or malicious intent, procedures must be followed to allow for maximum safety to protect the food supply.

The benefit of using these security seals is that after an item is sealed, it’s easy to tell if a product, box, or cargo container has been tampered with. This allows distributors to pull the items in question and take them out of stock to ensure the safety of consumers. Keeping food safe is an important part of keeping our economy going, keeping the public safe, and ensuring that revenue doesn’t decline due to unnecessary or malicious tampering. American Casting & Manufacturing is committed to providing the highest quality tamper evident seals for the agriculture and food industries in an effort to help keep the food supply safe.
