Goal 3: 100% of our food products will be Responsibly Sourced and Prepared

Responsible Food Manufacturing: Our standards

What’s the issue?

Through our Birds Eye, Iglo and Findus brands, we are the biggest frozen food company in Europe. Our employees, customers and consumers expect our products to meet all regulatory requirements, and they expect our food always to be safe and high-quality.

What’s our approach?

We make sure that our employees, suppliers and co-packers or co-producers are capable of meeting all relevant laws and regulations, as well as the additional standards that Iglo Group sets.

We make sure that our food manufacturing standards meet our Responsibly Sourced and Prepared promise. This includes the use and implementation of policies, codes of practices, procedures and product specifications standards.

Iglo Group operates to the following standards:

1. Legal Requirements: 
Compliance with all applicable laws and regulations of the country where we operate.

2. Employees: 
Provision of safe and healthy working conditions for all employees, and compliance with all health and safety legislation.

3. Consumers:  
Delivery of products and services, which consistently meet specified safety, quality and service criteria, and which are safe and fit for purpose for their intended use.

4. Quality Assurance:
* Iglo Group applies an end-to-end Quality Assurance food manufacturing model for managing product safety and quality standards.
* We always design safety into all aspects of sourcing, product design, manufacture and distribution including the use of the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) system, which is adopted throughout Iglo Group. 
* HACCP forms the basis of the product safety systems for all Iglo Group materials and products.
* We independently validate the good manufacturing and food safety standards we set for our manufacturing sites and third party suppliers by working to BRC, IFS or equivalent third party audit accreditation. These audits are completed on an annual basis.

5. Environment: 
We manage our manufacturing sites to Iglo Group environmental  standards including compliance with all relevant legislation for the country where operations are located.

Our Factories operate to the following standards:  BRC; IFS, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 18001, ISO 17025, ISO 18001, MSC, Bio (organic, ecological std), CRSPO.
