Nestlé Waters Canada Puslinch plant achieves ISO 22001 certification

Facility uses industry-leading food quality processes

TOWNSHIP OF PUSLINCH, Ontario – Nestlé Waters Canada, Canada’s marketshare-leading manufacturer and distributor of healthy beverage choices, today announced that its bottling facility has achieved ISO 22001 certification.

ISO 22001 is an international food safety management system that requires Nestlé Waters Canada to establish and maintain controls that include ongoing interactive communication, structured and fully integrated system management, prerequisite hazard control programs and deployment of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles.

“While we do 1,700 product quality tests daily at our Puslinch bottling facility, we recognize that hazard analysis is the key to an effective food safety management system, since conducting a hazard analysis assists in organizing the knowledge required to establish an effective combination of control measures,” said Dave Thorpe, Director of Supply Chain, Nestlé Waters Canada. “ISO 22001 requires that all hazards that may be reasonably expected to occur in the food chain, including hazards that may be associated with the type of process and facilities used, are identified and assessed. Thus it provides the means to determine and document why certain identified hazards need to be controlled by a particular organization and why others need not.”
