    Our Food Safety Concept

    • The Freddy Hirsch Nigeria’s manufacturing

    system is intentionally designed to account for

    food safety at every process step.

    • We understand and identified significant food

    safety hazard inherent in our operation and

    have installed preventive controls to minimize

    the risk of hazards.

    • Our food safety plan imbibes Hazard Analysis

    and Risk-based preventive Controls to

    measure and reduce the risk of contamination.

    • HACCP and cGMP are incorporated in

    system operations to ensure food is

    manufactured, processed, packaged and stored

    in hygienic conditions to stay safe,

    wholesome, and without quality deterioration

    within the declared shelf life.

    Our Quality System

    • Our Quality system drives Quality

    Assurance which encompasses totality of

    raw materials and GMP verification through

    finished product release, and Quality Control

    which concerns actual manufacturing

    parameters meeting set criteria.

    • It is the intention of our Quality program to

    design a system which protects the brand

    from undue regulatory unrest, customers

    dissatisfaction and protect the product from

    needless variation.

    Research and New Product Development

    • Research ingredients are

    carefully screened for

    compliance to FHG internal

    specifications/Food Safety

    requirements, Halal Assurance

    System provisions and local

    regulatory requirement from the

    product development stage.

    • All approved samples are

    formally ‘launched to live’ and

    pre-commercialized for

    Production schedule.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Analytical Capabilities

    • We have functional Laboratories-

    Chemical, Microbiogical and R&D,

    where our skilled Analysts provide

    analytical data on the quality of

    product and production processes to

    support Quality control in the HACCP

    system.

    • The Laboratory testing is important to our research and development of new

    products, choice/quality/safety of

    ingredients, shelf-life studies,

    regulatory compliance, and sensory

    evaluation of products.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Laboratory Testing Parameters

    In partnership with our third party Public

    Analyst Laboratory and parent company in

    South Africa; our range of analytical testing

    covers:

    • Physiochemical Analysis

    • Total Afflatoxin B1,B2,G1,G2

    • Microbiological Analysis

    • Heavy Metal contaminant

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Raw Material/Entrance Control Program

    • Our first important commitment at

    ensuring Total Quality

    Management to our customers is to

    seek ingredients from safe and

    approved sources.

    • Ingredients meeting up with raw

    materials Receiving Policy and

    Entrance protocol requirements of

    the FHG are sampled for micro

    organisms, physiochemical

    characteristics, contaminants and

    illegal additives.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Sifting of raw materials

    • The Sifting gantry has

    magnetic bars, and vibratory

    Screener Russell compact

    Sieve of unique particle size

    for specific ingredients.

    • The magnetic bars remove

    metal impurities while the

    screen removes any

    observable physical hazard.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Blending

    • A magnetic screen slit

    functions to dispense

    finished blend through a

    control point into large tuff

    bags.

    • Machinery failures which

    may be inform of broken

    blades and nuts have been

    considered for control at

    this CCP.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Packaging

    • Just like in the Ribbon Blenders, the

    packaging machine has magnetic

    screens to trap metals and other

    foreign matters of appreciable sizes.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Metal Detection

    • The food grade metal detector

    machine is installed directly

    after the packaging unit as an

    Operational Pre-requisite

    program, OPRP.

    • Finished goods in its final stage

    after packaging are checked

    once again via an X-ray metal

    detector system to fully

    exclude any form of metal.

    Good Manufacturing Practice

    • As part of our moral responsibility

    to produce safe and wholesome

    foods to our customers, GMP forms

    a vital prerequisite of our overall

    food safety system.

    • While our food safety culture places

    emphasis on GMP without

    compromise, our staffs are trained

    and constantly retrained on our

    GMP procedures.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Retention sampling

    • Retention sample is kept

    for each batch of

    production and monitored

    over the shelf life period.

    • This verifies product shelf

    life period, food quality,

    microbiological, physical

    and chemical attributes

    intended to form the

    overall product quality

    characteristics in time.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Shelf Life Testing

    • We also conduct Accelerated

    Shelf Life testing, ASLT on

    finished goods.

    • This is usually conducted on

    new products, and in the event

    of recipe re-

    formulation/modification or

    alternate package evaluation to

    predict future attributes and

    anticipated degradation in time

    over certain condition and

    variables.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Integrated Pest Management

    • As an important

    prerequisite to the

    existing food safety

    program; an Integrated

    Pest Management system

    that uses an exciting and

    modern technology is

    being managed by

    accredited pest

    management partners.

    • Rodent Bait stations and

    UV-Insect light traps are

    strategically located

    across various units of the

    facility.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Allergen Management

    • At the moment, we cannot

    completely guarantee an

    “allergen free product” or a

    “dedicated allergen status” on

    our products, as we do not have

    a request for allergen free

    products yet.

    • While we do not have a

    dedicated allergen lines in our

    factory, Cross contamination is

    under control through system

    line clearance.

    • Allergen warning is advised in

    prone areas while declaration

    made on concerned products.

  • www.freddyhirsch.co.za

    Product Recall and Traceability

    • Our Recall program is integrated with Freddy Hirsch in-house UnityF8 ERP

    software by Sanderson.
