processing facilities are FSSC 22000 certified except for
the recently acquired Hampshire plant, which is in the
process of receiving this certification. One of the areas of
particular focus for the company is mycotoxin and micro
risk mitigation.
" [FSSC 22000] is based on ISO principles, so food
the company's approach to ensuring
consistent product quality and food safety sets them
apart as well.
" We are the only private label manufacturer and contract
manufacturer in America that uses Food Safety
System Certification (FSSC) 22000 and that has been a
point of difference that, quite frankly, I am happy to report
is resonating with our customers, " Hamilton said.
FSSC 22000 is an internationally accepted, humangrade,
quality, and safety certification program available
through the Foundation for Food Safety Certification,
headquartered in The Netherlands. All of Red Collar's
customers understand ISO. It's not just pet food auditing,
it's human food as well, " Wolking explained. " It's
focused not only on the audit and checklist-based certification
but on the capability and the processes that
you have behind those kind of quality results. We feel it
really does make us better because these audits are tough
and require us to have the infrastructure and the processes
in place that are going to support these kinds of
solid quality results for the long term.
" FSSC dives into our HACCP plans and what our continuous
improvement cycle looks like for the results, " he
continued. " We learn something new every time we do
one of these audits and new auditors bring in different
perspectives. [FSSC 22000] isn't as well-known as some of
the other auditing bodies but we feel that it does add the
benefit from a quality standpoint and fits well with our
culture, which is about people, capability and process. "
Many of Red Collar's customers serve both the pet
food and treat industry and the human food industry
on a national and international level. FSSC 22000 offers
a program these customers are accustomed to across all
the brands they sell.
" Being able to use a human food standard in our pet
food application has been a real point of difference, "
Hamilton said. " Multi-national, multi-category companies
really appreciate that we can speak that language.
I also appreciate that
this quality scheme and audit
scheme doesn't let the management team off the hook.
We are as involved in the audit process as any one of
our factories, so it's not this set-it-and-forget-it process
where you get certified and you're done. It is a very integrated,
very technical conversation that the management
team is involved in, and we go through a management
review on a regular basis to make sure that we are
staying at and ahead of what the food safety standards
are to keep the quality and food safety for our products
at the top of the game. So, when things like FSMA come
along or audit cycles come through, we want to make
sure we've given our associates and our factories the best
quality scheme possible to make them as prepared for
today's challenges, as well as tomorrow's. "
