Kemin Industries (Des Moines, IA) has announced that its Verona, Missouri plant, operated by Kemin Food Technologies, has received Global Food Safety Initiative certification through the Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000 GFSI standard scheme. The certification verifies that the plant, dedicated to the production of Kemin’s Proteus clean label functional proteins, is effectively administering its Food Safety and Quality Management Systems.

According to the company’s press release, FSSC is among the highest levels of certifications in food safety management systems, combining “ISO 22000, a unique international standard based on the HACCP method, and ISO TS 22000-1, which was developed to specify the prerequisite programs related to Good Manufacturing Practices.” The certification requires rigorous review and audits. The facility has also earned recognition from USDA for implementation of the Process Verified Program audited by the Agricultural Marketing Services arm of the agency, as well as organic certification.

“We are thrilled to announce the Kemin Verona facility has achieved GFSI certification and is an Approved USDA Process Verified Program production plant,” said Marc Scantlin, president of Kemin Food Technologies, North America, in a press release. “These certifications are an important milestone at the facility, which was opened to support customer demand for clean label ingredient solutions. Proteus is an ideal functional protein ingredient that makes it possible for manufacturers to enhance the quality and yield of meat and poultry products, reduce input costs, and meet in-demand label claims.”
