Sativa Wellness Group Inc (AQSE:SWEL) has announced the successful achievement of ISO 22000 certification applicable to food safety relating to cannabis extraction at its Polish plant. The company also successfully passed the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point requirements, including Good Hygiene Practice and Good Manufacturing Practice as one of the components of the HACCP requirements. During the audit, the certification scope “Production of plant extracts” was confirmed.
ISO 22000 was developed as a food safety standard to acknowledge that the consequences of unsafe food can be serious. ISO’s food safety management standard helps organisations identify and control food safety hazards to provide a layer of reassurance within the global food supply chain, helping products that people can trust cross borders. HACCP is also a certification to help manage food safety hazards as food safety management procedures should be based on HACCP principles.
Geremy Thomas, Executive Chairman, said; “We are pleased to again achieve further certifications to demonstrate the quality of the products we produce and the standards we adhere to.”
