Food Safety

Our secret recipe? A safe workplace and excellent food safety systems. 
In this section:

Safety first

Food worth loving means we take extra care in making sure our workplaces are safe and our food is free of anything harmful.

We're raising the bar for safe practices. 

Safety is part of who we are, not just something we do. This means we infuse safety practices into all our areas of operations.

Systems: From processes to risk mitigation, audits to traceability — we focus on prevention, intervention and response.

Governance: Our Food Safety and Regulatory Policy leaves no stone unturned and involves our whole company — from the CEO and leadership teams, to farmers and employees.

Suppliers: We conduct regular supplier and co-producer audits and training around the world to help make sure we have the right safety information and are meeting expectations.

Recalls: If we learn about incidents that could be related to our products, we act fast. We work with health officials to investigate, communicate and recall if necessary.

Our guidelines, cooked to perfection

For more than half a century, we’ve been relentless in our quest for developing the highest food safety standards. Alongside NASA, we created HACCP-Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points processes.

Today, our standards are just as high and we’ve devised ways to tailor training and systems that work across the globe.
