Sante controls the whole production process, from the raw materials through manufacture to packaging. All raw materials, semi-finished products and end products are only obtained from proven suppliers who satisfy the highest quality standards. The resources are tested in the company’s buffer zone, to make sure that only materials of confirmed quality are used. The warehousing system is based on the FIFO principle (First In, First Out). Among other strictly controlled factors is the shelf life of both the raw materials and the finished products. Quality is reviewed at each step of production. During the manufacturing process, the quality of raw materials is controlled by production line operators, while the Quality Department regularly collects samples from the production line for control testing. A control for metallic impurities is carried out with the use of highly sensitive metal detectors, designed especially for the food industry by CEIA, a company with a worldwide renown. The quality of the packaging is tested too (welds, cartons and pallets). Sante has implemented the following procedures concerning food quality and safety: a Quality Management System consistent with the Global Standard concerning Food Safety with the highest level of compliance approval, the HACCP Food Safety Assurance System and a Quality Management System consistent with ISO 9001:2000, the HACCP Food Safety Assurance System.
