The FSHEC program includes the following major stages and controls:
Receipt of goods from suppliers
When products are received at our warehouse, they undergo a strict inspection procedure. Potential hazards, such as contamination, incorrect temperatures, incorrect expiry dates, documentation errors etc. are identified and dealt with by fully trained staff. We also conduct regular audits of our suppliers.
Storage in chillers / freezers
We have stringently implemented temperature controls throughout our facilities to ensure maintenance of the cold chain at all points. Potential hazards are identified, prevented and issues resolved by trained staff on a daily basis.
Picking and dispatch of products
Temperature control is verified. Fully trained staff members ensure appropriate handling practices are followed. Products are dispatched only when they pass our strict conformance criteria.

The Cold Chain
The key for assuring the quality of the food is the so-called Cold Chain: from the moment the goods leave the manufacturers facilities, they must be conserved in a range of temperatures that depends upon the product:
Fresh goods: Typically between 0 - 7C
