Food Safety & Security
Food safety is a growing concern for all food processors in order to eliminate the risks of mishandling and contamination. Implementation of a recognized food safety system such as ISO 22000 is critical to maintaining quality and safety of the final product. ISO 22000 incorporates the principles of Good Manufacturing Practices and HACCP which ensures all components from raw material acquisition to processing are controlled and risks are minimized or eliminated.
B & D Flavours Inc. manufactures according to a strict quality control program. B&D Flavours Inc. conducts regular rigorous internal audits that are documented at specified intervals.
- Documentation and implementation of this program began in March 2003 and members of the food safety committee meet regularly to ensure continuous improvement.
- An inspection by a third party audit team from Intertek Systems was first carried out in September 2005, and our IS0 22000-2005 (HACCP) certification was received in November 2005.
