A Chinese lubricant producer has obtained dual-quality certification from the U.S. National Sanitation Foundation for its food-grade products, the first Asian company to receive such international recognition.

Henan Beijia Lubrication Science & Technology Co., Ltd. said its five circulating oil products used in food were granted H1 and ISO21469 certification from the Michigan-based product testing, inspection organization.

Only 16 companies have such certification.
