Food safety

Product quality and safety has always been a top priority for Menz & Gasser. We firmly believe that it is only through excellent reliability and high safety standards that we can win and retain our customers’ and consumers’ trust. That is why we continually invest in the latest equipment and technology and in developing processes, procedures and controls to ensure that all stages of our production process are fully safe – as our IFS, BRC and GSFS certifications affirm.

An uncompromising approach to food safety is essential for us to compete and thrive in the global marketplace.
TO ENSURE THE HIGHEST FOOD SAFETY STANDARDS IN OUR PRODUCTS, WE USE:
CERTIFICATES OF ORIGIN

for raw materials

CHEMICAL, PHYSICAL AND ORGANOLEPTIC TESTS

on 100% of incoming raw materials and outgoing production batches

OPTICAL SEPARATOR

to ensure that only the highest-quality fruit is used and to remove crop debris (leaves, stalks, unripe fruit, etc.)

METAL DETECTOR

upstream of the packaging systems to ensure there are no pieces of metal

X-RAY CHECKS

to identify any foreign bodies without modifying the product

INTEGRATED COOLING SYSTEMS

on our packaging systems to keep our products fresh and flavoursome for even longer

OPTICAL INSPECTION

to check the integrity of the glass jars before and after packaging

AN OPTICAL SCANNER

to check the labelling, batch stamp and use-by date at the end of the production line
