Quality Assurance System
We prioritize the procurement of safe and secure food and implement quality assurance initiatives with a focus on our Quality Assurance Department.
In order to ensure the production of safe and secure products, members of our Quality Assurance Department personally visit the domestic plants that we contract to process our products to provide supervision and guidance. At overseas plants, we assign Japanese staff and local staff specializing in quality management to China, Vietnam, and Thailand, who strive to ensure product quality and sanitation management.
Local staff are periodically trained in Japan to deepen their understanding of the management required for food products bound for Japan.
Plants in Japan are divided into one of four ranks according to their manufacturing capacity, and we visit them at a predetermined frequency to conduct plant inspections and check the plant management system essential for supplying safe and secure products.
We also periodically visit overseas plants to inspect the actual production to confirm and give guidance on management systems regarding sanitation management, process management, measures for preventing the entry of foreign material, and food product protection, etc.
