Food Safety & Security Initiatives
Consumers’ interest in food safety has been increasing both domestically and internationally. Companies are required to positively work through environmental issues such as global warming. Under such circumstances, it has become vital to develop a system to manage food safety and quality as well as the environmental impact of our business activities. Our company has made proactive efforts in acquiring various international and domestic standards and certifications.
Based on the analysis and evaluation of food safety, quality, and environmental impact, we have established a consistent management system covering the stages ranging from production to processing and shipping. We are committed to continuously improving this system and thus being a company that can contribute to the dietary lifestyle of the 21st century.
Furthermore, a slaughter line was newly established in Ariake Pork Plant in April of 2019, and state-of-the-art equipment was introduced from the EU. This helped replace human labor with mechanization leading to better hygiene in the work environment.
