At Crown Food Group, we pride ourselves on making food safety a top priority.
Our commitment to our customers is underpinned by the Microsafe® Food Safety Programme which adheres to the most stringent standards of global product safety, quality, hygiene and legal compliance.
Microsafe® is the protocol that we abide by to ensure that our ingredients, seasonings, batchpacks, marinades and sauces proactively respond to the growing international demand for food safety standards.
Setting the benchmark for quality and compliance, in addition to our ISO/IEC 22000, HACCP, BRC and FSSC 22000 accredited certifications, Microsafe® demands additional food safety initiatives, including:
Microbiological analysis of pre and post sterilisation samples to ensure conformance with legal and customer requirements. We are capable of performing a range of tests including, but not limited to:
The Microsafe® Steam Sterilisation system is a high temperature protocol, during which spices are subjected to saturated steam at 110° C for a short, predetermined time. Steam sterilisation is a well-accepted, “green alternative” to Gamma Irradiation sterilisation and does not require any such labelling of product.
It is a natural, safe and effective manner in which to ensure the appropriate kill rate of micro-organisms; and is a preferred method to irradiation.
We steam sterilise the herbs and spices to ensure compliance with government regulations for microbial loads.
