Why? Because we make food that families and friends eat every day. And we make a promise to every one of them that they can trust the food we make.
At the heart of that promise is our global Food Safety and Quality system. It ensures that wherever we are located in the world, we have a consistent risk-based framework that sets out clear expectations for our people to follow.
And we communicate these expectations to our third party suppliers, which partner with us to make safe, high quality food.
In fact, we undertake more than 1.5 million quality tests every year and continue to find innovative ways to further enhance our world-class systems.
Before our food is exported, we also carry out a range of quality assessments specific to the destination country.
Our shipping containers are cleaned, inspected and tested before being packed and security sealed to ensure our products remain safe on their journey.
Our commitments to food safety and quality include:
Our Food Safety and Quality System is subject to regular scrutiny through third-party audits by regulators, key account customers, and certification bodies, as well as our own internal audit programme.
All of our global manufacturing facilities are independently certified to a leading food safety management system (e.g. FSSC 22000, BRC).
