Innophos’ food salt plant in Coatzacoalcos, Mexico, received an “excellent” rating based on “the 2009 upgraded version of food safety standards requisites” by AIB International Inc., Manhattan, Kan.
The plant was audited in January, according to the newest criteria set forth in the “AIB International Consolidated Standards for Inspection of Prerequisite and Food Safety Programs.”
The excellent rating was a result of inspections in five major areas: operational methods and personnel practices, maintenance for food safety, cleaning practices, integrated pest management, and adequacy of prerequisite and food safety programs.
“The depth of this inspection and the stringent, new criteria used to assess the plant gives us reasons to be especially proud of our personnel and of the quality of our production,” says Abraham Shabot, vice president, general manager - Latin America. “We are focused on growing our food salts presence worldwide, and this audit shows the dedication and capabilities that will make it possible for us to achieve that goal.”
