Quality

Product quality and product safety are key factors in the food industry. Ensuring food safety requires the professional competence and responsibility of the people who work in the food supply chain as well as production-related risk prevention and monitoring.

The production chain of Apetit’s frozen vegetables, frozen ready meals and rapeseed oils is monitored closely from field to fork. Apetit Group’s production facilities in Säkylä, Kantvik and Pudasjärvi have food safety systems certified in accordance with the GFSI standard: BRC in Säkylä and food safety systems according to FSSC 22000 standard in Kantvik and Pudasjärvi.

In addition, a comprehensive SMETA audit, created to support ethical trading, has been carried out at the Säkylä plant. The Säkylä and Kantvik plants also have their own laboratories for ensuring product safety. During the reporting period, the Säkylä plant also received BRC certification for quality and food safety.

Accurate labelling on packaging is also an essential part of product safety. Information about raw materials and allergens are clearly indicated on the labelling in accordance with the EU Food Information Regulation
