Our Moral Responsibility
Food Processing Sanitation/Hygiene
The philosophical viewpoint of the Food and Drug Administration is that they would prefer to see industries bring their plants into compliance voluntarily rather than to force compliance through FDA action.
The government rarely takes legal action against a processor without first making an inspection. The simplest examples are the finding of food products containing whole insects, very large fragments, whole rodent pellets or hairs, or in general, extraneous matter characterized by large size, indicating that the filth did not come from the raw ingredients.
We are a HACCP & ISO : 22000 certified company. We believe in ensuring the highest degree of sanitation and hygiene. We also follow Good Manufacturing practices levied by the AIB : The American Institute of Baking.
We at Monginis take a moral responsibility of upholding all the Laws levied by the FDA. We believe in using the highest quality of raw materials and ingredients in our manufactured goods. We take pride in our processes which ensure consistency and ensure safety from hazardous mishaps.
We believe in being honest and fair to all our stake holders. We strictly do not give credit nor encourage the idea of credit related transactions. Our company is a 100% interest free company. One of the very few companies in today’s times which could actually claim to be 100% interest free. We do not take interest not lend on interest.
We believe in good intentions in all our practices. For we believe that good intentions will always yield good products and services. If the intent is unworthy there in an inherent flaw from the start.
Good Manufacturing Practices
1.09 Federal guidelines under the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) (CFR Title 21, Parts 100-199, Sub Part 110) add a further refinement to the FD&C Act. These federal guidelines state the legal criteria under which food can be processed and are enforced as law.
The "Good Manufacturing Practices" implement the Congressional Statute; the FD&C Act. This set of guidelines outlines the types of actions that a food processor must take to manufacture food under clean conditions.
We at Monginis uphold encourage and try our best to follow the Good Manufacturing practices.
Section 110.10, Personnel, states the wearing of insecure jewelry, including rings with stones, pendants, earrings, bobby pins, etc., by persons engaged in food processing is prohibited. This requirement helps protect the food from foreign material adulteration by these decorative materials. Provisions also include no eating, no tobacco use, or no drinking in production areas, as well as a prohibition against the storage of personal articles in the production areas.
Section 110.20, Plant and Grounds, states that a food processor must take proper precautions to reduce the potential for contamination of end products, raw materials, or food packaging materials with microorganisms, chemicals, filth, or extraneous material. It requires that where the possibility of product adulteration exists, procedures must be developed to eliminate this potential contamination.
Section 110.35, General Maintenance,requires that all poisonous and dangerous cleaning compounds, sanitizing agents, and pesticide chemicals shall be applied and stored so that food or food packaging material contamination is prevented.
Section 110.37, Sanitary Facilities and Control, sets forth requirements on plumbing, sewage disposal, and toilet facilities that are necessary to prevent food contamination.
Section 110.40, Equipment and Utensils,requires that food processing equipment shall be designed and constructed to preclude the adulteration of food with lubricants, fuel, metal fragments, or any other contaminants.
Section 110.80, Production and Process Control, states that all reasonable precautions shall be taken to ensure that production procedures do not contaminate food with filth, harmful chemicals, undesirable microorganisms, or any objectionable material.
The key word throughout the GMP guidelines is prevention. The-entire food safety program must be based upon the prevention of the anticipated potential for food contamination.
Chemical, microbiological, or extraneous material testing procedures shall be used to identify food contamination that may have occurred and to prevent contaminated foods from being offered for sale to the consumer.
As has been stated in the GMPs, food safety is a legal requirement, and food processors can be prosecuted for failure to comply with the FD&C Act and the corresponding GMPs.
