FSSC 22000 is a complete independent food-safety certification developed to address prerequisite program requirements for food product and ingredient manufacturers. It is recognized by the GFSI and is supported by the Confederation of the Food and Drink Industries of the European Union and the American Groceries Manufacturing Association. GFSI-recognized certification ensures continuous improvement in food-safety management systems and delivery of safe food to consumers worldwide, and is a crucial certification for manufacturers supplying to global retailers including Wal-Mart, Costco, Kroger, Carrefour, Tesco, Migros and others.
This certification adds to Taiyo Lucid’s impressive list of international global certifications, including ISO9001:2008, ISO22000:2005, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007, and is the third Taiyo facility to achieve GFSI Recognized certification, with its Yokkaichi based facility achieving SQF 2000 Code Certification in 2012 and Taiyo Green Power facility achieving FSSC 22000 in June, 2013.
Sunfiber is a 100 percent natural, galactomannan-based soluble dietary fiber that is tasteless, colorless, odorless and gluten free. A true regulating fiber, it improves both constipation and diarrhea, and does not lead to the typical bloating, cramping and gas production that other fibers are known for with daily consumption. The result is regularity with healthy consistency. Sunfiber dissolves rapidly and crystal clear in beverages, and will not alter the taste or texture of foods.
