Food Safety: it's all about consumer trust
Every product that leaves Olymel's facilities, whether it carries our brand or one of our customers, meets the highest food safety and quality standards in the world.
At Olymel, all precautions are taken to ensure product safety. A strict SQF certified food safety program, recognized by GFS1, is in place in all plants. This program includes a variety of laboratory tests, both in terms of raw materials, packaging materials, equipment and final products. In addition, an ongoing training program ensures mastery of good manufacturing practices by every employee.
Each of our facilities applies the highest industry standards for food wholesomeness and safety, day in and day out. All our facilities are also subject to a rigorous sanitation process under the supervision of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
Animal Welfare: a moral and social obligation
As a major producer and processor of pork and poultry meats, Olymel requires that its employees and suppliers treat the animals with the greatest respect. From breeding and shipping to slaughtering, our company meets the highest standards of animal welfare and has adopted a consistent policy in this area.
In all aspects of its operations, Olymel strives to reduce its environmental footprint to a minimum. From the operations of its many plants, its manufacturing, packaging and transport processes, to waste disposal, water usage, wastewater treatment and energy savings, Olymel takes care to educate and train its employees in environmental best practices.
Since its inception, Olymel has provided support to many local communities, wherever its facilities are located. Our plants have often grown up with the towns and villages where they are located, generating economic activity and significant benefits and providing a large number of jobs to workers in the area. Olymel has also always been a major source of summer jobs for students seeking experience in the labour market, as well as an income to finance their studies.
