Quality Assurance System
Safety of ingredients
All of our ingredients are secured from suppliers who are able to meet our stringent guidelines. Not only do they have to meet food sanitation act guidelines, we also check for additives and allergens in an effort to guarantee safety and quality. Thorough testing is also done.

Our Commitment to Safety and Quality
Accurate and Clear Labeling
All information on our labels should not only follow food sanitation acts and JAS guidelines, but also provide information that is essential in our customer’s food selection. We strive to provide accurate and easy to understand information on nutrition, allergens and expiration dates.
Countermeasures for food allergies
In an effort to provide as much information as possible to our consumers, information on possible allergy-inducing ingredients is available not only on our packages, but also on our company website.
We will continue to follow stringent guidelines for all 27 established and associated food allergens out of consideration for our consumers’ concerns.
