As part of this, the product has to look appealing, taste good, be healthy where applicable and, above all, be a food-safe product. Smilde Foods uses a digitalised quality and HACCP system which meets its customers’ most stringent requirements. The quality and food-safety system is IFS certified.

Storage recommendations for the consumer
The packaging displays how long the product can be stored for. If a product has been opened or there is no best before date, the Food Centre storage guide includes some useful guidelines. It is important that the fridge is never above 7°C. The fridge should preferably be set at 4°C. Place products which a short shelf life, or which have been opened, in the coldest part of the fridge and cover them well.
