Juice Tyme announces attaining the Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000 scheme under the benchmarking organization Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). GFSI is a nonprofit created in 2000 in an effort to reduce high profile food recalls, improve food quality and safety; and create consistent guidelines. Juice Tyme has manufactured and sold high-quality juice concentrates and beverages for more than 30 years, and recognized the FSSC 22000 certification as a way to assure customers of its food safety practices.
"In today's competitive environment it's imperative that resources are dedicated to producing high quality, safe products for the consumer," explained Matt Martens, Juice Tyme executive vice president of operations. "Becoming a recognized GFSI facility through FSSC 22000 certification adds to our continuous improvement program as it relates to food safety and quality."
By working with a certified partner, Juice Tyme customers will benefit because it assures best food safety practices are being followed. It also provides the company with a management system approach to qualify and train employees, with appropriate infrastructure and work environment. Juice Tyme has always had a commitment to safety, and this food safety certification demonstrates that to its partners. Juice Tyme provides its customers quality juice products along with a set of benefits that would be difficult to find in another single supplier. These include variety, fast flavor development, packaging options and fresh, made-to-order products (produced within one to three days), all with low minimum order requirements.
