Unibag is concerned to protect consumers and to offer them the best service and quality. To build customer trust and increase confidence, the company worked to implement the ISO 22000:2005 Food Safety Management System in order to lower the risk of bacterial contamination to the product and therefore the risk of disease throughout the entire supply chain process.
Unibag was certified in December 2018 to operate a Food Safety Management System which complies with the requirements of ISO 22000:2005 incorporating the principles of HACCP and currently holds an ISO 22000:2005 Certificate of Registration from SMG (Sustainable Management Group) – Canada.
Having this certification can help make customers feel more secure in the safety of a business’s product; an increasingly important issue for both businesses and consumers.
The standards are made up of these key parts:
- System Management
- Interactive communication
- Prerequisite programs
- HACCP principles
ISO has listed the following requirements for a Food Safety Management System:
- To plan, implement, operate, maintain and update a Food Safety Management System that’s aimed at providing products that are safe for the consumer.
- To comply with the necessary statutory and regulatory food safety requirements.
- To evaluate and assess the needs of customers and show that it conforms with the mutually agreed upon customer needs relating to food safety, which aims to improve customer satisfaction.
- To effectively communicate food safety issues to their suppliers, customers and relevant interested parties throughout the food supply chain.
- To make sure that the company complies with its stated food safety policy and effectively shows this.
- To seek certification or registration of its Food Safety Management System by an external organization.

Is your knowledge of paper production fact or fiction? The link below will take you to a website to help you sort out the truths from the misconceptions. The good news is, it’s not bad news. Paper production is not the bully to the environment that people generally believe it is.
Does an increase in paper production result in fewer forests? You might automatically think so, but when you know the facts, you might just be surprised. Although trees are associated with paper production, the raw materials derived from it produce a wide array of products. The wood itself can build everything from a church pew to a rollercoaster, the sawdust contributes to particle board and fuel, the bark and cork are key ingredients to decorative mulch, shoes and baseballs. But it’s the pulping of the wood that takes credit for the paper products you use every day. Not just books, boxes and grocery bags, but products like turpentine, jigsaw puzzles and artificial kidney membranes. When you think about all the products that can be assembled, and the tree is the main ingredient, it might just make you appreciate them a little more.
Companies, who need the trees for their product, know their value. That is why huge steps are made every day to combat the possible loss of forestry.
