Class Code: 2111
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 2111 applies to the canning of a variety of products, primarily fresh vegetables and fruit. The preliminary operations involve the cleaning and otherwise preparation of the produce for canning by washing, grading and blanching. Some produce require peeling, slicing or coring. Some require preheating or softening but, for the most part, the cooking takes place after the cans are sealed, usually by machine. Cans are then placed in retorts until properly heated or cooked. They are then washed, cooled, labeled, stored or shipped. The canning of dog and/or cat food (wet process) is covered by this class as well as the freezing of vegetables where the preparatory operations are the same as canning except vegetables are packaged and frozen rather than canned. Pea deveining at the cannery or a permanent location of a cannery is also included under Code 2111. The packaging of aerosol products, compounds into plastic containers and the canning of motor oil and turpentine by contractors also fall within the scope of this classification.
Code 2111 is a “not otherwise classified” (NOC) classification. This means that Code 2111 shall apply to an insured’s operation(s) only when no other classification more specifically describes the insured’s operation(s). The following is a representative list of operations somewhat related in nature to Code 2111 operations that are not assigned to Code 2111.
2157 Bottling NOC
2143 Fruit Juice Mfg.
2156 Bottling-Not Carbonated Liquids
2131 Spirituous Liquor Bottling
In addition to this representative list, one should review sources such as the alphabetical index in this manual to determine whether a classification other than Code 2111 or a classification other than a classification on the above list is applicable to the operation(s) being reviewed for classification purposes.
