Food Safety

Our Mission Statement
It is our goal to give our customers the finest, most wholesome foods possible.  We are committed taking necessary steps to implement and maintain a sound Food Security Management Program.

Implementation of an effective Food Security program has been required by FDA.  This is a proactive approach to prevent tampering of products.  The Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness Response Act of 2002 (the Bioterrorism Act) requires domestic and foreign facilities that manufacture, and process, pack, or hold food for human or animal consumption in the United States to register with the FDA by December 12th, 2003.

At Onion Boy food safety is an integral part or our entire operation.
It includes warehousing, packing, and shipping. It also includes non-production items such as training of employees and training materials.

Food safety is not a static program. It is dynamic in nature. Each and every meeting discusses food safety and each and every management action ensures that food safety not only fits comfortably into the overall objective of Onion Boy, Inc, but that it is also understood and easily executed by each and every employee.

The goal of the hazard program is to institute a proactive food safety system for its operations whereby any potential product hazards are anticipated and controlled from product reception through distribution. Food safety and quality control is the responsibility of all the employees of Onion Boy and affiliated service and product providers. Management has provided the tools and established guidelines for producing safe, wholesome, quality products. All employees are accountable for consistently maintaining these standards.

The hazard program has been established with the help of the company officers. Although the burden of food safety and quality control is in the hands of management and supervisors, all employees serve as inspectors when product moves through their area. Onion Boy’s employees are authorized to hold or reject product found to be out of compliance, subject to evaluation and final approval of authorized management.
