Baja Agro achieves perfect score for food safety certification




Baja Agro International has announced the recent achievement of a 100% compliance score (zero non-conformities) on their annual audit for their HACCP and ISO 22000:2005 Food Safety Management System certification.


"We are committed to continuously improving our internal product quality and security system, as well as constantly searching for new areas of opportunity to improve and maintain the high quality of the products which we produce," the company stated in a press release. 


Baja Agro expects that improvements will continue on its infrastructure and daily operations.  The company's production facility and products have been certified under HACCP, ISO 22000:2005, GMP+ B2 and B3 since 2009 by the certification house, Societe Generale de Surveillance (SGS).   


This past May, Baja Agro had its recertification audit for HACCP and ISO 22000:2005, in which the following areas were reviewed: warehouse, production, maintenance, document control, purchasing, human resources, sales and logistics as well as an overview of preventative and corrective actions.  The audit culminated in the company's recertification for the next three years.


In late October this year, Baja Agro will undergo a recertification audit for GMP+ B2 and GMP+ B3.


"In the same manner, over the past 12 years, our animal feed products have been certified ORGANIC under the USDA's NOP (National Organic Program) standards, as well as the European Union's EC 1235/2008 and 834/2007 standards that as of January 2015 made some modifications which required us to search for a new certification house which includes Class E certification for Mexico," the press statement added. 


"We finally found a certification house which complies with this requirement, KIWA BCS Mexico, which is an affiliate to the German certification house, KIWA BCS Oko Garanti.  We complied with all the necessary requirements during a recent audit and authorised the corresponding organic certification."


Baja Agro's agricultural products will continue to be certified under OMRI standards, which were recently revalidated with an expiration date of December 2016.


"We strive to obtain these certifications in an effort to continuously offer our customers, the safest and highest quality products in the market," the company said.
