GloryBee Foods recently underwent its annual audit by the American Institute of Baking (AIB) and received a “superior” rating, which is the highest rating awarded. This is the third year in a row that GloryBee has received a “superior” rating from the AIB.
AIB offers several types of audit programs. GloryBee participates in the “AIB Consolidated Standards for Prerequisites and Food Safety Programs” audit. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s) are an integral aspect of this audit. GMPs are guidelines that describe the methods, equipment, facilities and controls required for producing safe products. They require a quality approach to manufacturing and distribution, enabling companies to minimize or eliminate instances of contamination, mix-ups, and errors.
The AIB audit offers an unbiased, third-party report on a variety of these practices, including sanitation, equipment maintenance, integrated pest management, operational and personnel practices, and food safety training programs. A “superior” rating in this audit shows that a company is especially well-rounded in its Good Manufacturing Practices.
