GFTC Good Manufacturing Practice Audit
We are happy to announce that Dan-D Foods has officially passed the Guelph Food Technology Centre (GFTC) good manufacturing practice (GMP) audit. Dan-D Foods scored a gold rating of 98.6%, one of the highest ratings amongst Canadian food manufacturers.
The GFTC GMP audit is considered by many as one of the bench mark manufacturing inspections in the world. Facilities must pass this food safety audit with a score of 85% in all sections before being accepted for a GFTC/AIB HACCP accreditation audit.
The audit assesses the fundamental programs required to manage food safety, areas of inspection including the premises, storage and distribution, equipment and maintenance, training and management of personnel, sanitation and pest control, and traceability and recall.
The GMP audit covers the Prerequisite Program requirements that are commonly outlined by various regulatory bodies such as CFIA, FDA and Codex. It is commonly used by the supply chain for small to medium sized facilities as well as a preliminary requirement for the GFTC/AIB HACCP accreditation.
Dan-D Foods is an international company with global offices in Canada, USA, Vietnam, China, Hong Kong and Thailand. Since gaining ISO 9001 certification in 2000 and now successfully passing the GMP audit, Dan-D Foods has once again shown a commitment to customer satisfaction.
