Our Product Line is made in accordance with International Standards, Protocols and Procedures referred to as HACCP. HACCP is defined as: Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point. It is a food production, storage, and distribution monitoring system for identification and control of associated health hazards. It is aimed at prevention of contamination, instead of end-product evaluation.
In place of relying on food inspectors to detect food safety problems; HACCP shifts the responsibility to the food producer to ensure that the product is safely consumable. It is proposed for the food industry in general and the meat, poultry, seafood industry in particular, It has been adopted by some 150 countries.
SAFE FOOD MANUFACTURING also involves the choice of container. Some competitors Import Jars and Bottles where SAFE MANUFACTURING STANDARDS ARE LAX OR NON EXISTENT. Our Jars and Bottles are made in The Heartland Of America using Food/Cosmetic Grade White Flint Glass. Is it more expensive? Yes! Is the additional cost passed on to you. Yes! Is it worth it? The Answer is YES, if you believe as I do that “It is better to be SAFE than Sorry.”
You hear a lot today about the need for TRANSPARENCY practiced by Corporations, Governments, Non Profit Organizations Etc. Etc.
The Principle also applies to SAFE FOOD Nutritional Analysis.
On May 20, 2016, the United States Food And Drug Administration announced The New Nutrition Facts Label for packaged foods to reflect new scientific information, including the link between diet and chronic diseases such as obesity and heart disease. The new label makes it easier for consumers to make better informed food choices. The final rules were published in The United States Federal Register on May 27, 2016.
While Mandatory Compliance is postponed to 2020; many not all small and large food companies are currently implementing the change despite significant Time Spent and Operational Costs.
