Food Safety Policy
Everyone at Privamnuts EPZ Kenya Limited has a moral obligation to safeguard each other, our customers and the environment by aspiring to operate in a safe, injury free and healthy work place producing high quality Raw macadamia Kernel that meet the statutory, regulatory, customer and food safety standards, both locally and internationally
Our primary concern is that our products are prepared to the very highest standards using quality ingredient(s) and comply with all relevant legislation and approved codes of practice.
To ensure the best practice, we have developed a common minimum operating standard and codes of behaviours which will be practised at every location we operate. These standards and codes are based on FSSC/ISO 22000 standardization, ISO/TS 22002-1, Statutory, Regulatory and Customer requirements..
In pursuit of the policy, we commit to implement and maintain an effective Food Safety Management System (FSMS) to identify, control and where possible eliminate potential Hazards, Threats & Vulnerabilities that may cause contamination to our products, as well as train and sensitize our personnel on the requirements
Specifically we will ensure that:
Our products are prepared under sanitary conditions that do not expose them to risk of cross contamination.
All our employees are provided with the information, training and tools necessary to do their job in a hygienic and compliant manner.
Employees comply with all the company’s food safety policies and procedures.
We Communicate appropriately both Internally and Externally with all the relevant interested parties in regard to our FSMS.
Management assumes the role of supervision of our employees for compliance and conformance with these standards.
We also expect similarly higher standards from our suppliers and service providers.
We will regularly measure compliance against the FSMS, develop and implement performance objectives for Continual Improvements and to assure our customers that they are provided with safe to eat food while meeting their quality expectations.
It is our responsibility as the Directors to ensure that the appropriate resources, including human and financial ones, are committed towards implementing and maintaining this policy across all our operations and communicating our policies and standards to all our employees..
Our food safety performance will be considered at every management review meeting where we will report annually on the compliance to these standards and on the specific departments that meet the requirements of our FSMS. The Board will review this policy where necessary to ensure that it continues to suitably reflect the aims and the aspirations of the company
