Because of the importance of high consumer confidence and the impact of the US Food and Drug Administration's Food Safety Modernization Act, Kemin has spent the past three years investing in the human and financial capital necessary to achieve Food Safety System Certification 22000:2010 at its Des Moines, Iowa, USA, manufacturing facility.
FSCC 22000:2010, recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative, covers the manufacturing of food ingredients, including some petfood ingredients, used in further processing and is designed to provide greater confidence in food, fewer health risks, lower auditing costs, improved protection for brands and improved supply chain management.
Other facilities with FSSC 22000:2010 certification include the company’s plant extraction facility in Des Moines and all food ingredients manufactured in its facility in Herentals, Belgium. Additionally, in September 2010, Kemin received FAMI QS/International Safe Feed/Safe Food certificate for its facility in Des Moines.
“Consumer safety is paramount,” said Dr. Chris Nelson, president and CEO of Kemin Industries. “This certification gives our customers peace of mind that Kemin delivers on its promise to provide quality, safe ingredients. It also validates our role as the market leader in food safety.”
