Food Defense

Nissui has established a set of standards for "food defense," referring to measures to guard against food terrorism perpetrated by malicious third parties. The basics of food defense are: making it physically impossible to tamper with food, monitoring, and making sure that people cannot bring things into workspaces from the outside. In addition to these basic principles, our requirements cover ensuring the safety of water supplies, properly managing pharmaceuticals, monitoring the comings and goings of personnel, and encouraging more effective communicating more effectively with staff. In this respect Nissui provides both "hard" and "soft" guarantees of the protection of food safety against intentional acts of harm.

Safety programs will doubtless continue indefinitely. Depending on the nature of the product, stringent standards are applied. Customers are presented not only with package listings but with forthcoming information on products through websites.

Furthermore, the Customer Service Center accepts questions, views and comments from customers, either by phone or via email. These conversations are then used to improve products and services. In addition, in order to achieve an even higher level of safety and reliability, we perform yearly reviews and updates of the Quality Assurance Code and all of our other quality control standards.
