Safety Guard is the VanDrie Group’s integrated quality system which assures food safety and animal welfare throughout the production chain. The responsible use of antibiotics and environmental management are also regulated through Safety Guard. The basis of Safety Guard is ISO 22000, the standard implemented throughout the VanDrie Group.
Safety Guard has also been configured to meet the demands of customers worldwide. IFS and BRC are housed within Safety Guard. At the core of Safety Guard is the traceability system. The basis in every phase of the production process is the animal’s individual earmark, the ID code, which remains associated with the animal and the meat. Even when the meat is reduced further in the deboning plant, the ID code remains associated with each cut of meat, making traceability down to the individual animal still possible. This is another example of the difference between the VanDrie Group and other veal producers. T. Boer & zn guarantees unconditionally the quality of its products.
The entire chain of the calf feed industry, calf breeding and veal production from which our product are derived, is under the control of the Foundation for Quality Guarantee of the Veal Meat Sector (SKV).
For the continuous control of the slaughter and deboning process we work according to the GMP code. Furthermore the Identification and Registration System (I&R) ensures that our quality assurance system is completely watertight.
