Safe and pure food

Good food is made from carefully selected raw materials that are pure and responsibly produced with extremely high standards of care and hygiene.

Product safety and quality are vital to us. Food safety is based on the professional competence and responsibility of the people who work in the food supply chain, the reliability of the food supply chain’s operations as well as risk prevention and risk management.

For example, the transparency and openness of the food supply chain regarding the origin of raw materials and the stages of production is important for product safety. 

Our food production facilities in Säkylä, Kirkkonummi, Helsinki and Pudasjärvi have implemented food safety systems in accordance with the ISO/FSSC 22 000 standard. Diligent self-monitoring is also essential to our day-to-day operations.

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT 

The delicious taste of Apetit products comes from using good raw materials and restricting the manufacturing and processing stages to only what is necessary. 

Ensuring product safety is part of product development. Careful and controlled manufacturing processes ensure that the high natural nutrient density of the raw materials is maintained all the way to the consumer’s plate. Nutrition guidelines direct our product development to a significant extent. 

In developing vegetable-rich and vegan products, we pay particular attention to their protein and energy content. The diverse consumption of vegetables, vegetable oils and full grains is an essential part of a healthy diet.

We do not use genetically modified raw ingredients in our food products. Our frozen vegetable products contain no additives, and the use of additives in other products is carefully considered and restricted to what is strictly necessary.

PACKAGING 

Reliable information provided on product packaging and other product communications help consumers make buying decisions, adhere to their chosen way of eating and avoid allergens. 

The packaging also serves the purpose of protecting the food product, increasing its preservability at retail locations and homes, and reducing food waste. We only use the necessary amount of packaging materials, and avoid excessive packaging.
