At Brett Anthony Foods,
we strive to consider all food safety concerns.

Our approach is aligned with SQF’s principle of applying the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) system in our facility.
HACCP is a technical and scientific standard that guarantees safe food by analyzing and managing biological, chemical, and physical hazards. Through this approach, our partners have our promise that the products and SKUs we manufacture for them are produced in an environment where there is continued:
  • Analysis of any possible hazard.

  • Detailed CCPs (critical control points).

  • Specification of critical limits.

  • Monitoring procedures.

  • Preventative and corrective actions.

  • Internal verification procedures.

  • Independent audits and reviews.

  • Record-keeping and documentation that is precise and up to date.

  • Team training and education.
