Food safety is a worldwide concern, not only for its importance in our health, but also because of its impact on international trade. The safety concern is closely related to global issues such as overpopulation, poverty, availability and quality of water and food safety, among others.
Knowing that safety must be ensured through the combination of efforts of all the parties involved participating in the different steps of the food chain, we have achieved in RIS S.A. the Food Safety System Certification FSSC 22000, reaching all the supply chain.
Through the supply chain we accomplish the integration of the elements of food safety in our processes and the optimization of traceability in all the food chain guarantying the control of the safety of the products, which allow us to achieve the mutual acknowledgment of the organizations, with a competitive advantage in the national and foreign market.
We have clear goals, to guarantee food safety, committed to sustainable development.
Being aware of social responsibility, RIS contributes to improving the social environment. Improving working conditions and job security, coupled with environmental protection, are the most important priorities. Thanks to the ethical audits according to the regulations of the independent organization "Supplier Ethical Data Exchange" (Sedex) these actions are quantifiable and form the basis for continuous optimization.
The avant-garde Sedex system is an online tool structured in questionnaires for different companies and suppliers made according to the most important standards and strict rules of the ethical business field and C.S.R. Thus, it makes available in one place and under a single integrated model all the information needed to manage and monitor ethics in supply chains. "Sedex, the Ethical Data Exchange Provider" was founded in 2004 in the UK as a non-profit organization aimed at improving ethical and responsible practices of the companies within their supply chains. As an innovative tool that reduces cost, effort and duplication of information and that helps companies and brands to reduce risk and generating greater control of ethics and sustainability of supply chains. The tool of management of supply chains Sedex launched four years ago, has been evolving and expanding, and today Sedex is present in about 20,000 production sites in more than 130 countries worldwide.
