Do’s Farm: Professional Quality Control Process, Adhere to the Guarantee of Quality
Jun 09,2022 | Do's Farm
Safety is the top priority of an enterprise's production, and the production of high-quality and safe products is the foundation of a food production enterprise's survival. As a food manufacturer, we have always strictly grasped the safety performance of our products. As early as September 2016, we have passed the HACCP food safety control system certification, which has not only been recognized by the national authority but also won the consensus of consumers. Good reviews. We follow the HACCP system standards to minimize the risk of products being harmful to consumers.
What is HACCP? HACCP, Hazard Analysis, and Critical Control Points is a preventive system used to identify, evaluate and control various food hazards, which is different from traditional quality control methods. HACCP is to analyze the raw materials and various factors affecting product safety in each production process, determine the key links in the processing process, establishes and improves monitoring procedures and monitoring standards, and take effective corrective measures to minimize the risk to consumers. Hazardous risk. Hazard Analysis - Xinle Company has made strict and effective checks. A hazard analysis is the first step in establishing a HACCP plan. The company conducts a detailed analysis according to the hazards and control methods in the food that it has mastered, combined with the process characteristics. Taking the hazard analysis of raw materials as an example, in the hazard analysis of food raw materials, it is necessary to first know what raw materials or their main components are used; whether there are relevant microorganisms in these raw materials; whether the raw materials are toxic or contain toxic substances. Specific analysis should be made according to the variety, source, specification, quality index, etc. of the raw materials. In addition, the company also conducts a hazard analysis on the hygienic conditions of the water and auxiliary materials used in production, to strictly and effectively check. The strict control of key points (CCPS) ─ The company has established a comprehensive safety inspection system. The company's critical control points are determined according to the hazard analysis, and corresponding measures are taken to prevent biological pollution, chemical pollution (insecticides, washing chemicals, antibiotics, heavy metals, misuse of additives, printing inks for plastic packaging, adhesives, etc.), as well as physical contamination (metal fragments, glass slag, stones, wood chips, radioactive substances, etc.), with emphasis on biological hazards control. The food safety hazards referred to here are significant hazards, each of which must be controlled by one or more CCPS. CCPS refers to those links that will affect the quality of products due to poor control, thereby endangering the health of consumers. Generally speaking, there should be fewer than 6 critical control points, and controlling too many points will weaken the control of critical control points affecting food safety. Taking the processing process as an example, before the raw materials are prepared, they must be sieved. At the same time, to prevent the possible harm to human health caused by the fine metals in the feed, they must be detected by a metal detector. Once identified as a critical control point, corresponding control standards and appropriate detection methods must be formulated. For example, by monitoring values such as time, temperature, water activity, pH, titratable acid salt concentration, preservative content, etc., such as adding preservatives, heating to kill bacteria, and improving food ingredient formulations to prevent chemical hazards, such as the hazards of food additives occur. Each key control point is monitored by quality control personnel throughout the entire process. The operators are all qualified after strict training. The finished products are inspected by the quality assurance department and regularly sent to the relevant national departments for testing to ensure the high quality of the products. security. With good control of these key points, the passing of HACCP system certification provides consumers with a safer consumption environment. It complements the 100,000-level GMP certification of the production workshop, which provides an important guarantee for the safe production and product quality of our healthy food.
The following takes the production process of sugar-free mints as an example to give you a more specific introduction. First of all, our staff will inspect all incoming materials (IQC) according to strict standards to prevent bad materials from entering the material warehouse. The incoming materials mainly include two aspects, one is the ingredients of sugar-free mints, such as natural menthol, sorbitol, and vitamin C, etc.; the other is packaging materials, such as the bottles, boxes, and outer packaging cartons of sugar-free mints. In the process of inspecting incoming materials, we will conduct uniform random sampling, and mainly inspect incoming materials in two aspects. The first is sensory testing. Quality control personnel conduct on-site observations to confirm whether the color, shape, taste, and smell of the incoming materials meet the corresponding requirements. At the same time, it is also necessary to confirm whether there are visible impurities mixed with the incoming materials under normal vision. middle. The second is the physical and chemical indicators. By randomly sampling incoming samples, they are sent to the laboratory, and the samples are subjected to corresponding laboratory testing. After the above work is completed, the raw materials can enter the raw material workshop and start the formal production process. Sugar-free mints, mainly include ingredients, mixing, tableting, inner packaging, and outer packaging. Each step has corresponding quality control personnel to control the quality. When making ingredients, it is mainly to confirm the percentage of each ingredient of sugar-free mints to ensure that the raw materials themselves are not wrong. For example, between watermelon-flavored sugar-free mints and lemon-flavored sugar-free mints, there are differences in the taste and raw materials, and the staff must ensure that the wrong raw materials are not used. When mixing raw materials, it is mainly to adjust the equipment accordingly, so that different raw materials can be stirred to the required uniformity. When tableting, the hardness of the sugar-free mints is mainly tested with the help of a hardness tester. There will also be staff to check the appearance of sugar-free mints and arrange corresponding personnel to taste to ensure the quality of sugar-free mints. During the inner packaging, the staff will observe the appearance of the mints, whether there are black spots, abnormal color spots, foreign objects, etc., and will also use instruments to ensure that the weight and number of sugar-free mints meet the requirements. When packing, it is mainly to confirm and proofread the labels, signs, production dates, and all product information of the products to ensure the correctness of packing. After packing the sugar-free mints into the outer carton, we will weigh each box to ensure the accuracy of the product quantity. In all processes, once the quality control personnel find abnormal conditions, such as visible foreign matter in the bottle, they will promptly control and scrap the corresponding sugar-free mints.
After completing all the above processes, sugar-free mints can be sold. Sugar-free mints are stored in clean, dry warehouses before being sold. When it needs to be transported, the transport vehicles will also be controlled according to the corresponding hygiene requirements, and will not be mixed with toxic and polluted items. During transportation, our staff will handle it gently to prevent the carton from being squeezed, or exposed to sunlight or rain.
Not only sugar-free mints, but with such a rigorous quality control process, we will strictly control the quality of every product we produce. If you want to sell such high-quality sugar-free mints or other products, please feel free to contact our salesmen!
