Impression of “taste” is based on safety.
We already have “FDA/HACCP” for exporting Itsumo branded products to USA, in 2016 we got “EU/HACCP” for exporting to EU.
Yamabishi fisheries focuses on the control of production process especially inspection and analysis of raw materials and products.
We analyze the main cause of harm which may occur in food products from various angles, for example temperature, time and foreign substance.
*The explanation of HACCP
Careful examination before entering the factory
In order to maintain proper sanitation inside the factory, we never let outside filth in.
In front of the entrance, there is an air shower room to remove hair and thread waste.
Furthermore in the sanitary room, while looking in a mirror, we remove any remaining hair and thread waste by roller style sticky tape. Without exception handwashing measured by a timer is also installed and enforced.
Lastly we disinfect our hands gently by alcohol, finally we have completed the cleansing process and are ready to enter the room.
Cleaning method of the factory equipment and tool cleaning is thoroughly instructed.
Improvement of health awareness is the first step of food safety.
Avoiding injury by the latest equipment
Air filtering system The clean air which is cleaned by the filter gets into the factory by a duct.
Yamabishi fisheries developed a system which controls temperature, time and foreign remains thoroughly.
For example 9 “micro cold rooms” are equipped in the factory as temporary storage. When the raw materials become a product, there is a small amount of time in between the process. During that time we control the goods securely in low temperature.
“Tunnel freezer” is a rapidly freezing system. In Yamabishi fisheries our system can freeze products quickly because the tunnel freezer is connected to the automated line. Tuna goes through the temperature zone which drops to -30℃ so that the quality and freshness is kept.
We use an air filtering system which is used at pharmaceutical factories. This system removes pollen and invisible dust from outside air by using a big filter. This system helps ensure clean air in the factory.
