Food Safety

Food Safety Management System: ISO 22000:2018 And FSSC:

In the year 2000, we took a significant step towards maintaining international food safety standards by obtaining the Codex (HACCP 9000) certificate.

In 2006, we took a significant step towards ensuring food safety by implementing a system similar to the ISO Standard 22000. This effort resulted in receiving a certificate in November 2008. Furthermore, in March 2014, all four Chilling Centres received certification under ISO 22000:2005 for food safety management. As per the Food Safety Act and standard of 2006, our responsibility extends from 'Grass to Glass.' To guarantee that our milk is free from harmful elements that could affect health, Sumul Dairy in Surat and the Lahe Plant in Nasik both received ISO 22000:2005 certification. In the year 2020, the THR plant was also certified under ISO 22000:2018.

Sumul Dairy Surat, as well as Sumul Dairy Navi Pardi (comprising the Bakery, Powder Plant, and Ice Cream Plant), have both been awarded ISO 22000:2018 certificates by implementing a Food Safety Management System. These entities have also obtained FSSC 22000 international standards certification for export purposes starting from 2019.

With the aim of ensuring food safety in the final products and achieving high customer satisfaction levels, the glass and jewelry policy has been revised. This policy is grounded in regulations applicable to small dairy products, with the goal of minimizing the risk of foreign objects, including glass, metal, jewelry, soft plastics, and hard plastics.

Food Safety Training and Certification (FOSTAC Training)

As per food safety standard and regulation, there should be at least one food safetysupervisor for every 25 food handlers, in which about 125 employees from all units have been trained in Sumul Dairy till 2021. This year milk procurement societies were also included in this FOSTAC training to implement clean milk production practices in "Swachh2022" and a total of 563 members of various societies have been covered.
