On August 12, 2021, TUV Rheinland issued GMC’s Feed milling business unit an ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Management System (FSMS) Certification.
The certification scope covers Manufacturing of Swine and Poultry feeds in mash, pellet and crumble form,from receipt of feed ingredient and materials, storage, pelletizing, cooling, packing, and dispatch of finished products.
The feat was a product of the organization’s firm commitment and collaborative efforts, and a demonstration of our robust management system that is adaptive and responsive to emerging global issues.
It all started in October 2018, when GMC’s Food Safety and Quality Management System (FSQMS) was formally relaunched. This was led by GMC’s Executive Vice-President and FSQ Management Representative, Mr. Joselito Fausto F. Parco, and GMC’s Finance Director Mr. Edwin Y. Kho. The relaunch program started with senior management’s presentation of GMC’s updated Food Safety and Quality Policy. The FSQ policy was signed by GMC’s CEO, Mr. George U. Young Jr. as a testament of top management’s commitment to Food Safety and Quality.
This jumpstarted the various FSQ activities, including employee trainings, investments in infrastructure, review of processes, conduct of risk assessments, establishment of a biosecurity program, and implementation of FSQ standards and guidelines.
Having successfully attained ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS) Certification puts GMC’s Feeds business as one of the key players in industry that can be relied upon in providing consistent safe products manufactured under very high standards of hygienic and biosecure conditions.
