Nestle Water obtains safety qualification

Nestlé Waters Canada announced on June 15 that its bottling facility has achieved ISO 22001 certification.


ISO 22001 is an international food safety management system that requires Nestlé to establish and maintain controls that include ongoing interactive communication, structured and fully integrated system management, prerequisite hazard control programs and de­ployment of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles.

“While we do 1,700 product quality tests daily at our Puslinch bottling facility, we recognize that hazard analysis is the key to an effective food safety management system, since conducting a hazard analysis assists in organizing the knowledge required to establish an effective combination of control measures,” said Dave Thorpe, director of supply chain for Nestlé Waters.

“ISO 22001 requires that all hazards that may be reasonably expected to occur in the food chain, including hazards that may be associated with the type of process and facilities used, are identified and assessed.
