FOOD SAFETY ASSURANCE SYSTEM


Quality Assurance's goal is to consistently provide the safest and best tasting foods, together with great customer service.

Our QA team employs HACCP as part of Food Safety Assurance System.

Incoming fresh crops, production inputs, equipment surfaces and employee's personal hygiene are checked to ensure food safety. During production, we take samples for chemical, microbiological and physical analyses at our inhouse laboratory.

For cleaning incoming crops before processing, we use water fit for human consumption, Also, every outlet in plant gives the same clean water. Our water filtration is in accordance with the Turkish Ministry of Health's “regulation for water that is intended for human consumption and use”. This water and the filtration system are routinely tested for microbiological and chemical risks.

Metal detection is a standard Critical Control Point for all of our products.

We randomly select sealed product boxes and open them for Microbiological, Chemical and Physical hazards as part of our routine controls.

FARM TO FORK TRACEABILITY


Traceability starts with seeds and seedlings, which are purchased by our own Purchasing Department. All our seeds are free of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) and come with an Orange Certificate which indicates their high quality.

As part of our traceability system our Quality Assurance records all inputs and processes, from planting of seeds to metal detection of finished products, every stage of production is recorded. We offer complete Farm to Fork traceability with confidence: we can trace production lots, individual pallets, and down to a single box.

In the unlikely event of a recall, our customers don't have to recall a complete container. You will know exactly which boxes to recall.
