DOCUMENT NO: KK-POL-01

Kakuzi PLC is on a mission and is committed to consistently produce quality products, responsibly, sustainably and ethically, as a strategic direction of the company. Our Food Safety Management System (FSMS) has incorporated Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) principles and Prerequisite Programs (PRPs) that ensure our food products meet consumer food safety requirements through:

  • Establishment and maintenance of food safety management systems in accordance with the International Standards ISO 22000:2018 (E), the ISO /TS  22002-1:2009, the FSSC 22000 additional requirements of relevant applicable FSSC 22000 version and other related standards.
  • Ensuring that our food safety system is supported by our business objectives during the identification, evaluation and elimination of potential food safety hazards and implementation of effective hygienic conditions.
  • Ensuring commitment, compliance and communication (internal and external) on the importance of meeting the company’s food safety requirements, ISO 22000:2018 (E) standard, ISO/TS 22002-1:2009, FSSC 22000 additional requirements, interested parties’ and mutually agreed on customer requirements relating to food safety, as well as statutory and regulatory requirements relating to FSMS.
  • Establishing and annually reviewing the food safety policy and food safety objectives as well as continuous food safety training and food safety policy communication to our internal personnel, other stakeholders and interested parties (e.g. through website).
  • Conducting food safety team meetings for above reviews and management reviews for continual improvement and ensuring the availability of necessary resources needed for our food safety management system.
  • Ensuring competencies of persons and supporting relevant management roles contributing to FSMS activity within the scope.
     

We foster a work ethic and food safety culture which strives to continually improve our food safety management systems through periodic reviews. This policy shall therefore be a framework for setting and reviewing the objectives of our food safety management system.
