Rahr Malting Co. is happy to share that our Shakopee MN malting facility has recently received FSSC 22000 certification.
FSSC 22000 is the ISO base Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarked food safety scheme. This means that facilities certified against the standard are operating on a globally benchmarked food safety standard that requires formal food safety programs to be in place and maintained. The scheme also requires engagement at every level of the company, from senior leadership to the folks on the floor executing the program.
In addition to government regulatory standards that a facility must operate under, the scheme requires work toward a few distinct fundamentals:
Participation in FSSC 22000 year over year will ensure that our continual improvement efforts are enhanced through audits by highly trained 3rd party auditors.
This certification underlines Rahr’s commitment to quality, consistency and service. Food safety is important to Rahr Malting Co. and we want our customers to be confident the ingredients provided are produced to standards above and beyond government regulations.
