Quality assurance
in the food industry

Your respon­si­bility

Through a variety of quality assur­ance proce­dures, the food industry imple­ments its own respon­si­bility in daily busi­ness prac­tice. Existing quality assur­ance systems are constantly reviewed and adapted due to ever-increasing legal require­ments (e.g. trace­ability; origin assur­ance; hygiene regu­la­tions), the adop­tion of inter­na­tional stan­dards (e.g. IFS, BRC, FSSC, etc.) and internal company require­ments (e.g. on sustain­ability, animal welfare or regionality).

Your safety

In addi­tion to their own internal controls, compa­nies in the food industry are subject to further controls for process safety and food quality. Product safety is guar­an­teed by numerous private-sector quality and brand programs, which are commu­ni­cated to consumers by means of corre­sponding test, quality and brand labels (e.g. QS – Quality and Safety; GQ – Tested Quality).

Your ideal partner

A well-func­tioning quality manage­ment system helps food manu­fac­turers to produce high-quality prod­ucts and to comply with legal regu­la­tions. In this way, expen­sive recalls as well as possible claims for damages, combined with a high loss of image and confi­dence, can be avoided.
Due to the many-sided respon­si­bil­i­ties of a quality manager in the company, it makes sense, espe­cially for smaller compa­nies, to seek outside support. Here the Tentamus Group is your ideal partner.

Our part­ner­ship offers you the secu­rity to always meet the legal require­ments, to contin­u­ously improve the quality in your company and at the same time to save valu­able time and resources by getting compe­tent and trustful advice from our experts.

Why are HACCP concepts
so important in quality management?

HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Crit­ical Control Points. It consists of 7 prin­ci­ples designed to filter out and monitor poten­tial sources of danger in compa­nies. The prin­ci­ples are:

  1. Hazard analysis
  2. Crit­ical control points
  3. Limit values
  4. Contin­uous monitoring
  5. Correc­tive actions
  6. Docu­men­ta­tion
  7. Regular veri­fi­ca­tion

HACCP concepts are mainly used for preven­tion. This means that poten­tial sources of danger or error are analyzed and moni­tored before they occur, which can greatly reduce them in the long term.
