NIST works on establishingproduct safety as it should be every manufacturer’s first importance.Ensuring the safety of the products and maintaining the confidence of consumers is the single most important goal of the food industry. Product safety is the basis of consumer trust, and all food industry dedicateshuge resources to ensure that the food is safe.

What We Do            

NIST food safety team works to ensure that consumers continue to have access to safe, quality and affordable products through consulting, auditing, training and by providing UK certification.We have a distinctiveapproach when it comes to product safety.

First, the institute has taken a headship role in the implementation and promotion of comprehensive UK food safety certifications including HACCP,IRCA food audit course (FSMS) and, consulting and auditing that would help eachfood professional,as they are the cornerstone of our nation’s food safety strategy, thereby, raising the food safety bar for all manufacturers and provide the FSMSstandards with the resources and authorities it needs to conduct its food safety mission and protect public health.

In addition, NIST plays a vital role in helping its clients to produce safe food and comply with state and local regulations. Finally, when it comes to product safety, training and certification is very important to understand the impact of chemicals used in food and consumers products. We also impart FSMS (Food Safety Management System) auditor course to know and follow fair policies and regulations that will keep consumers safe from potentially harmful physical, chemicals and microbes.

Whenever anyone one of us eats or drinks something, we have certain expectations from that food e.g. it should look, smell and taste as expected. But what happens when something unexpected occurs, such as finding a foreign material in the food, food is considered to be spoiled or unsafe. Food safety concerns a lot for consumable food items. The expectations are categorized as:

Foreign materials in foods are a real concern, not only in terms of the consumer complaints that arise, but as an important factor in the effective implementation of the company’s food safety guidelines, particularly the Hazard Analysis Critical Control (HACCP) system. The Risk Categories are:

safe foodRaw material/finished goods inspection and specification testing, vendor certification, standard operating procedures (SOP), equipment calibration, effective pest control in the facility, preventative equipment maintenance and proper cleaning and sanitation procedures are the requirements to establish food safety/HACCP systems.Broad benefits of food safety to product manufacturers are:

– Separation of means of pathogens/contamination

– Increased product shelf life

– New product developments

Selection of appropriate and efficient processing methods will prevent physical hazards in food and ensure consumer safety. There are lots of recent advances developed to provide food safety, natural, safe and healthy food as per expectations of the consumers.HACCP is a preventive system assuring the safe production of food products.  The application of HACCP is based on technical and scientific principles that assure food safety.  An ideal application would include all processes from the farm to the table. The most important aspect of HACCP is that it is a preventative system rather than an inspection system of controlling food safety hazards.

NIST food safety expertsays that Prevention of hazards cannot be accomplished by end product inspection, so controlling the production process with HACCP offers the best approach for any food industry.  At NIST, the application and training of HACCP is systematic because structured hazard analysis and implementation are provided. It is a good practice to ensure that your HACCP team or food safety professionals are appropriately trained with adequate skills and knowledge to implement and maintain the food safety management system. This will ensure that your products meet your customers’ expectations, are safe and are of good quality. NIST is a Registered Training Institute offering a suite of UK food safety, FSMS and HACCP courses designed to assist the individual and with training all levels of staff within your business. Our training is available scheduled across India or alternatively we can come to you to train a group of your staff.
