Test and Hold Program
No product is released into distribution without adhering to the strict standards of our Test and Hold Program, in which product tests are conducted by a certified, independent laboratory. We use scientifically- and statistically-based referencing standards set by the ICMSF (International Commission on the Microbiological Specification for Foods). Samples are collected and tested for every product produced. Every sample is kept for a time equal to the guaranteed shelf life of the product, typically 12 months. And no product is released without this verification activity.
