Our overall SEQ policy

Our overall Safety, Environment and Quality management policy

Our responsibility and overall policy in terms of quality and food safety, safety at work place, environment protection is implemented through an Integrated Management System (IMS) covering all of these dimensions of Safety, Environment and Quality.


The implementation of the IMS process, initiated in 2003 by the memorandum of undertaking of the management, was delegated in terms of method to the Safety, Environment and Quality Department, which was strengthened for that purpose.

After grouping the activities of the company together in 13 processes, working groups were formed, led by pilots.

The company's entire workforce was involved in this process, either through being assigned to this specific activity, through participating in the working groups, through proofreading and validating procedures and operating methods, or through attending awareness-raising and specific training sessions.

The process is coordinated by a steering committee consisting of company and plant management members and all the pilots.

Finally, each process is subject to quarterly reviews, which fuel the bimonthly management reviews.

In these three fields, the policies are implemented in accordance with the economic and financial balance of the company.

Ajinomoto Animal Nutrition Europe Integrated Management System (IMS) is certified by DET NORSKE VERITAS (DNV) in compliance with the following codes: ISO 9001, FAMI-QS, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
