G.taste Co., Ltd contributes to create a plentiful food culture as a pioneer of the food industry.

We believe that grasping the lifestyle and values of the people which change on a daily basis, being flexible for the environmental change for customers' satisfaction,
and seeking for the originality leads to contribute for our sales improvement.

Food processing industry

Our department of food production produces and sells products made with wheat flour, processed meat products, frozen foods and sauces.
The factory could handle wide range of ingredients because it mainly supplies them to stores directly, that is, different from an ordinary factory.
Based on the HACCP concept, we constructed 7S, which "Sterilise" and "Scrub" are added to 5S(Sort, Set in order, Shine, Standardise, Sustain),
and we organise the education and mechanism for functioning the factory better.

【HACCP】Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point

It is thought that "Food Safety" is to clean and organise the manufacturing environment so that it can be produced the safe food, and it has been focused
on the maintenance of the manufacturing environment and its hygiene.
And checking the produced food's safety has been mainly carried out by sampling inspection of the final product. (e.g. inspection of microorganisms)
However, it couldn't eliminate the possibility of the produced food which caused food poisoning.
In regard to it, HACCP method is different. Through all steps from receiving ingredients to manufacturing and shipping, it expects its dangerous element beforehand
and it specifies the Critical Control Point (CCP) to prevent the risk of damage. (prevention, extinction, reduction of up to an acceptable level)
Then it continues monitoring its point, and it takes measures and resolves as soon as the issue is found so that it could prevent shipping defective products in advance.
