Certifications and Sanitary Control
Our Company has been certified by the Swiss Multinational Corporation SGS with the SQF level 3 and the ISO9001-2008 certification.
Both are highly and globally recognized certifications, regarding safe and quality control
Hazard analysis and critical control points is a systematic preventive approach to food safety from biological, chemical, and physical hazards in production processes that can cause the finished product to be unsafe, and designs measurements to reduce these risks to a safe level.In this manner, HACCP is referred as the preventionof hazards rather than finished product inspection.
The HACCP system can be used at all stages of a food chain, from food production and preparation processes including packaging, distribution, etc.
We address SQF (Safe Quality Food) management system through the HACCP method to identify and control quality threats, and addresses process controls & monitor product quality, identify deviations from control parameters and define corrections necessary to keep processes under control.
SQF, stands for Safe Quality Foods, and is a comprehensive food safety and quality management program for the entire food supply chain.
It lays out the rules that a business must follow in order help ensure the safety and quality of their product.
The business uses the applicable SQF Code to develop and implement a program that meets their needs and then contracts a third party audit company (a certification body) to verify through audits that the program as documented and implemented meets the requirements of the applicable SQF Code and will assure the production of a safe, quality product.
Both the Codes have been internationally recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) as exceeding their requirements.
