Food quality will suffer unless manufacturers put more effort into hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP) systems, a leading rice processor has warned.

Continuous investment of time, personnel and money into HACCP systems is the only way to ensure the manufacture of high quality foods.

In this exclusive video general operations manager of the rice processor Indo European Foods, Sanjay Nayar, said quality was at the forefront of the company and was most certainly driven by strict HACCP systems.

“We have a whole team over here from a quality analysis technical team to the staff, who need to know what quality is about,” ​he said. “It’s not about employing two or three people right at the top who think they will do everything, because it goes all the way down to the people ​[on the factory floor].”

Quality control and food safety go “hand in glove”,​ he said. The returns of investing a lot of time and effort into such systems would yield returns greater than any amount of money pumped in, he added.

Meanwhile, Nayar said Indo European Foods was on track to meet the December deadline for Food Information Regulation (FIR) changes. held a one-hour webinar on FIR, which can be viewed for free here​.
