The Orkla Food Safety Standard (OFSS) forms the basis for food safety work at Orkla, and ensures a high uniform level of quality at all the Group’s production facilities.
The standard is based on the internationally recognised food safety standard established by the British Retail Consortium (BRC), and has been further developed by Orkla’s central Food Safety Department to cover every risk factor of special relevance for Orkla’s food production. All the food products that Orkla launches have undergone a thorough risk assessment during the development process to identify and control potential health hazards associated with packaging, ingredients and use. A special standard has been introduced for Orkla’s sales and distribution companies. The companies are monitored through special audits carried out by Orkla’s food safety team. In addition, Orkla insists that all suppliers comply with the Group’s stringent guidelines for safe raw material production.
