Among the tools used in the daily monitoring is a matrix of quality indicators. These indicators are used to identify possible corrective actions to be taken in the process, as well as best practices and opportunities for continuous improvement to be applied across all industrial units. All cases of identified non-conformities are addressed immediately in order to minimize the risks to the consumer’s health and safety. The product traceability system allows for the identification of the batches in all stages of the process.
