IFS Food Certificate
The goal of the project, which is a part of the business policy of TKI Hrastnik, d.d., is to ensure safe food. Safe foods are an obligation and at the same time represent an advantage in the market. The IFS FOOD certificate vouches for the safety and quality of producers and production processes. Our company obtained it on 1st October 2018. It combines the requirements of the HACCP system according to the Codex Alimentarius and the requirements related to good business and hygiene practice.
In 2018, TKI Hrastnik, d.d. successfully applied to the call for tender on co-funding market research, international forums and certificates. In the framework of this tender, our project was funded with 3.010,37 EUR from the European Fund for Regional Development ( www.eu-skladi.si ) by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union.
HACCP system with FAMI-QS upgrade
The HACCP system with the FAMI–QS upgrade ensures safety (the hygienic integrity and compliance), quality and compliance with the regulations in the production of animal feed ingredients and their mixtures. The preventive system enables the identification, assessment and control of potential risk factors that may be present and can threaten the safety of the product in the production of feed additives, as well as taking the appropriate action.
The acquired EU environmental sign (ECOLABEL) for our cleaning products and detergents marks environmentally less harmful products that meet high the ecological standards and efficiency criteria.
