Quality Control

Each worker in the factory produces the items under the mottos " Deliver great taste
and great impression" and " Clean and honest company". Each product focus in the
customer's perspective paying attention to quality control standards and a heightened
awareness for hyginene.

To ensure the safety of our products, checkpoints have been set up throughout the
processing of raw materials, manufacturing/processing and delivery, and each criterion
is strictly adhered to. Our inspection system guarantees the safety of our products
with our fully equipped inspection room and the introduction of x-ray foreign matter

We have established our own control production process and inspection. This point
is further highlighted through our adoption of HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical
Control Point) and FSSC22000 (Food safety system) to emphasize on production
safety as well as customer satisfaction.

What is HACCP ? (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) 

At first, HACCP was developed to secure the safety of space foods in USA in 1960's.

HACCP is a systematic preventive approarch to food safety that addresses physical, chemical
and biological hazards as a means of prevention rather than finished product inspection.
HACCP is used in the food industry to identify potential food safety hazards, so that key actions,
known as critical control point can be taken to reduce or eliminate the risk of the hazards
being realized. The system is used all stages of food production and preparation processes.

This method has gained international recognition and that it is recommended by CODEX
committee that all countries should adapt to this practice. CODEX is a combined medium of
the world health organization(WHO) and the united nations food agriculture organization (FAO).

One of the major advantages to HACCP is that the process helps to identify probable contami-
nation points whthin the production and shipment process. The HACCP method recognize
important management points for checking (the precention, extinction, the decrease to
permissible label) contamination and monitors on each point to detect anomalies within
the whole cycle. In each point, we are able to remedy the problem immediately.
