At Hilmar Ingredients, we believe that understanding our customer's business is just as important as understanding our ingredients. Our Research and Development team works closely with customers to identify functionality and nutritional needs, and then develops products to meet those needs. We work hand-in-hand with customers to provide solutions to challenges as well as identify the differences and advantages our ingredients have over competing products.
Hilmar Ingredients' quality management system is designed to meet the most stringent standards. Our quality measures guarantee consistency, traceability and responsiveness at every step and signifies our commitment to deliver our best to you each and every time.
We are certified for the FSSC 22000 standards by Lloyds Registry Quality Assurance. Certification of both facilities, California and Texas, meets the requirements of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) for food safety systems and is a key component in the continuous improvement and strengthening of our food safety operations. Additional food safety is captured through our Hygienic Zoning programs which control contamination transfer risk through employee practices and process design. Our Hilmar facility and services are ISO 9001 certified, a discipline that provides increased efficiency, productivity and benefits to customers in cost management and product consistency.
We recognize our responsibility in partnering with customers to provide foods, beverages and pharmaceuticals for their consumers around the world. Our milk supply meets regulatory and herd health standards. All of our products are Kosher and Halal approved, GMO-free and EU-conforming.
