Now Pecan Deluxe is a massive player in the inclusions, candy, and confections industry.

Though their business has changed quite a lot over the years they have always cared about quality. Pecan Deluxe is the perfect example of a business with a food safety culture. From ownership to production, everyone at Pecan Deluxe cares about hygiene and food safety. Food Safety & Quality Assurance experts work collaboratively to ensure the safety and quality of all Pecan Deluxe products.

In 2002, Pecan Deluxe Candy Company and Meritech partnered to improve food safety practices. Pecan Deluxe has several classic Meritech handwashing stations, and this year added a new EVO Three and EVO One to their arsenal of automated hygiene equipment. After seeing the success of automated handwashing Pecan Deluxe decided to implement an automated boot scrubber and boot dip that attaches to the handwashing units for simultaneous hand and footwear hygiene in 12 seconds.

CleanTech® has been the perfect solution to Pecan Deluxe's hygiene needs. It even helped them earn the 2021 Food Quality & Safety Award for large businesses. This award is a testament to the level of commitment Pecan Deluxe makes on daily basis to achieve the highest levels of food safety.
