Quality of Products
With thousands of customers across Eurasia and Africa, AVANGARDCO is fully committed to its customers’ wellbeing, ensuring that its products are consistently of a high quality and safe for consumption.
To provide effective quality control, the Company has developed and implemented an integrated quality and safety management system. It is based on the key best practice international norms and principles for food quality standards set for food producers, including:
- Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point approach (HACCP)
- Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
- Standards of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO)
- Standards of the GLOBALG.A.P. (EurepGAP)
The system ensures quality control and risk management at each stage of food production so our customers can be fully confident of the safety and high quality of products.
The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) system has also been developed and implemented at all the production facilities of AVANGARDCO. The Company carried out the appropriate audits and trained its employees to ensure compliance with the approved HACCP system.
The Company has several levels of quality and safety control for its products:
