Orkla takes an uncompromising stance on food safety. We apply the same product quality and product safety standards regardless of the country in which we manufacture or sell our products.
Several million consumers buy our food products regularly. It is essential that they be able to feel that the food they eat is safe and that they can trust our products. Above all, this means that we, as a food and drink manufacturer, must assume responsibility for people’s health and put in place effective food safety procedures in every part of our value chain.
Orkla aims to be on a par with the best companies in the world when it comes to food safety. Through our own Orkla Food Safety Standard (OFSS), we ensure a high, uniform standard at all our factories. We have equally stringent guidelines for our suppliers, to ensure the safe production of raw materials.
The main risk factors for food safety are pathogenic bacteria, allergens, foreign bodies, undesirable substance content and the risk of sabotage.
In the period up to 2020, Orkla will continue to refine and improve the tools and methods that we are already using. At the same time, we will take steps to counter the challenges that we expect to face in the food industry in the coming years.
