Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods & Oils, a global leader in hemp foods, announced today that their state-of-the-art facility in Winnipeg has added Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) recognition to their growing list of external certifications and quality standards. Certified by AIB International, Manitoba Harvest joins a select few food manufacturers with HACCP accreditation.
HACCP is an internationally recognized safety system created to prevent, reduce and eliminate potential hazards. The system covers three potential food safety areas: biological hazards (micro-organisms), chemical hazards (substances/molecules), and physical hazards (items not normally found in food).
“At Manitoba Harvest food safety and quality are our primary concerns,” said Mike Fata, Manitoba Harvest CEO and Co-Founder. “We control every aspect of the production process. From sourcing crops, to food processing to packaging and distribution, Manitoba Harvest holds itself to the highest operational standards. We are constantly evolving and trying to lead the way in food quality and safety.”
Manitoba Harvest implemented the associated strict HACCP standards to provide added food safety protection to customers. HACCP certification also supports the company’s belief that food safety is the responsibility of everyone in the organization. From the production lines to support staff to senior management, everyone on the Manitoba Harvest team has an increased ownership of the production of safe foods.
With the HACCP system’s regular monitoring protocols, Manitoba Harvest is more aware of potential issues and better able to proactively resolve before product is distributed to retail partners and consumers. Currently, Manitoba Harvest is the only hemp food manufacturer to be HACCP certified and is proud to offer this additional quality assurance to partners and consumers.
