Production Process Quality
Employees in our factories change their footwear as they move from one zone to another. They wash their hands each time they enter a production area. Every time they heat ingredients, they measure and record temperatures.
This might seem dull and inefficient, but human errors occur when people regard such essential steps to assuring quality as troublesome. To prevent such errors, we think about why these precautions are required and strive for accurate understanding of the meaning behind each step.
Strict Rules and Error Prevention Systems
To prevent contamination by foreign matter unwittingly carried in by employees, our factories have rules about changing into specific work clothes and predetermined procedures for entering work zones. They also have food defense systems to prevent malicious contamination. We use our own systems for ingredient mixing processes to prevent any possibility of mixing errors.
Malicious Contamination Prevention Policies
- 1.Only authorized persons are permitted to enter production zones.
- 2.Pranks are not permitted.
- 3.Food safety can be proven after production.
- ＋We value dialogue with employees
Mixing Error Prevention
We have developed our own mixing error prevention systems to assure quality and eliminate employee errors and uncertainties at our factories. These systems enable employees to cross-check and record ingredient types, volumes for use, expiry dates, etc. at every step of ingredients’ delivery, measurement, and mixing by scanning 2-D codes.
Moreover, record-keeping enables employees to specify the ingredients used in a particular product and other products using the same ingredients. These mixing error prevention systems form the basis of our traceability systems.
