24 April 2023

At Flex Foods, we understand that hygiene and safety are paramount when it comes to food products, especially freeze dried herbs. As a leading freeze-dried exporter in India, we have implemented a range of measures to ensure that our products are of the highest quality and safety.

Read more about the standards and practices that we have put in place to ensure that only high-quality ingredients pass on from our plant to your customers’ pantries.

Our Quality and Safety Management Systems

At Flex Foods, we are proud to have been awarded an AA grade in BRCGS issue 8 and IFS version 7 higher-grade score latest audits. This certification is a testament to our commitment to quality and safety, and it assures our customers that our products meet the highest standards.

Our Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Policy

To ensure that our products are produced in a hygienic environment, we have established a GMP policy that addresses hygiene and the upkeep of the process. This policy ensures that all personnel involved in the production process are properly trained and understand their responsibilities.

Our FSMA Certification

We are also proud to have a plant that is FSMA certified. This certification means that we have all process controls, sanitation controls, allergen management, and supplier controls in place, further enhancing our system and moving forward in achieving our goals.

Our Validated HACCP Plan

We have implemented a validated HACCP plan for each product category. HACCP is a systematic approach to identifying and preventing potential hazards that can affect the safety of food products. The HACCP plan describes the product characteristics, intended use, hazards, risk assessment, CCP (Critical Control Point) controls, corrective action plans, verification and validations, and record keeping.

This plan ensures that all potential hazards are identified and managed to minimize the risk of contamination, ensuring the safety of our freeze-dried herb products.


To monitor and drive our hygiene and safety agenda, we have a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) who ensures that the plan is properly implemented and maintained. The PCQI is responsible for ensuring that all personnel involved in the production process are properly trained and understand their responsibilities.

Our Packaging, Storage, and Transportation Policy

To ensure the safety and quality of our products during packaging, storage, and transportation, we have a strict policy in place. Our freeze-dried herbs are stored in a clean, dry, and cool environment to maintain their quality and shelf life. We also use high-quality packaging materials to prevent contamination and ensure that the products are delivered to our customers in the best possible condition.

Our Audits and Training Programs

At Flex Foods, we conduct regular internal and external audits to ensure that our systems are in place and that we meet the necessary standards. We also provide regular training and continuous improvement programs to ensure that we remain at the forefront of the industry and continue to provide high-quality and safe dehydrated herbs to our customers.

We take hygiene and safety seriously, and we are committed to providing our customers with high-quality freeze-dried herb products that are safe for consumption. From our certification, GMP policy, FSMA certification, validated HACCP plan, PCQI, and strict policies on packaging, storage, and transportation, you can be assured that you are receiving the best freeze-dried herbs on the market.
