Is swallow / swiftlet nest safe for human consumptions?

Edible Swallow / Swiftlet nests are harvested for human consumption and have been a delicacy for over 1000 years (see wikipedia for more info). We guarantee that all of our products contain no preservatives, no chemical and no coloring. In order to ensure the best quality we comply with HACCP which is an internationally recognized certificate for hygiene and food safety. We also comply with ISO 9001 International Standard.

What is ISO 9001 and HACCP?

1298854684_image_ISO_HACCP (1)
ISO 9001 is an international standard that is used to ensure that their quality assurance system is in place and effective. Conformance to ISO 9001 is said to guarantee that a company delivers quality products and services. To follow ISO 9001, a company’s management team decides quality assurance policies and objectives. Next, the company or an external consultant formally writes down the company’s policies and requirements and how the staff can implement the quality assurance system. Once this guideline is in place and the quality assurance procedures entered, an outside assessor examines the company’s quality assurance system to make sure it complies with ISO 9001. A detailed report describes the parts of the standard the company missed, and the company agrees to correct any problems within a specific time. Once the problems are corrected, the company is certified as in conformance with the standard.

 

The HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points) system, which is science based and systematic, identifies specific hazards and measures for their control to ensure the safety of food. HACCP is a tool to assess hazards and establish control systems that focus on prevention rather than relying mainly on end-product testing. Any HACCP system is capable of accommodating change, such as advances in equipment design, processing procedures or technological developments.
