We are fulfilling the high standards of the European food safety regulations and therefore got certified by the EU. Next to our own safety measures we are being regularly monitored by local authorities to ensure food safety. Traceability plays an important role, therefore we want to quickly inform you about the basics.
What is it about?
“Traceability” means the ability to track any food, feed, food-producing animal or substance that will be used for consumption, through all stages of production, processing and distribution. This way responding to potential risks that can arise in food and feed gets way more easier, to ensure that all food products in the EU are safe for European citizens to eat.
Why is it important?
It is essential that when national authorities or food businesses -like ours- identify a risk they can trace it back to its source in order to quickly isolate the problem and prevent contaminated products from reaching consumers.
Responsibility of food businesses?
Identify and document information on products “one step forward and one step back” in the food chain.
Actions in case of risks?
• Immediately withdraw the affected products from the market and, if necessary, recall them from consumers.
• Destroy any batch, lot or consignment of feed that does not satisfy food safety requirements.
• Inform the competent authorities of the risk and of the actions which have been taken.
