For a food company, quality control is very important to protect the safety of its products. In order to ensure the safety and reliability of food, Yamazaki Baking has established a comprehensive framework based on a training and inspection system that complies with AIB International Consolidated Standards. The Food Safety Division at Yamazaki Baking is responsible for food safety and hygiene training and supervision. The Food Sanitation Control Center within the Division tests ingredients and products, checks product labels, inspects the hygiene of production lines, and educates employees about hygiene. In addition, through the application of scientific methods, the Food Hygiene Control Dept. works with the Food Hygiene Centers at each factory to promote the cleaning, inspection, and improvement of facilities as well as to carry out safety measures focused on preventing contamination. Furthermore, the Consumer Service draws on inquiries and requests from customers to improve the company’s products. Yamazaki Baking undertakes stringent health and safety management from all possible angles in order to justify its customers’ trust.

AIB International Consolidated Standards
The American Institute of Baking independently created its AIB International Consolidated Standards based on laws and regulations in Europe and the United States. The goal of the Standards is to eliminate hazards in the factory work environment and in all production processes from the receipt of raw materials to the shipment of products. In 2001, the Japan Institute of Baking established its Food Safety Division and introduced a training and inspection system licensed by AIB and based on its Standards. The system has also been successful outside the baking industry, being introduced at a variety of food production facilities that include those making flour, confectionaries, and dairy products.
