Towards Safer Food, Better Health For All

Safe food is a basic necessity, and WayCool believes in delivering high quality and safe food. This drove WayCool to do something quite unheard of in the agri business – work towards ISO certification for our fruits and vegetables distribution centre. Given the perishable nature of the product, this is a tricky road to go down.

Each stakeholder in the food ecosystem has a responsibility towards collectively improving food safety concerns. In its pursuit of a safe food culture, WayCool has been validated by TUV SUD, a reputed international provider of quality and safety certifications and receiving ISO 22000:2018 (Food Safety Management System) certification for our fruits and vegetables distribution centre at Virugambakkam, Chennai.

This is a milestone with its own significance for WayCool. It is a display of the company’s culture of continual improvement and commitment towards “safer food, better health”. The certification also comes as a great motivational factor for our team which has put tremendous effort into adopting quality as a culture. It confirms our best-in-class food safety and management system, and ensures the best in quality for our consumers.

Setting a high benchmark in food quality and safety management for the financial year 2022-23, WayCool is determined to continually improve the food safety management systems across its distribution centres. In addition, we are working towards achieving GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative), a recognized certification for business units.

WayCool Foods is also committed to keeping its customers satisfied with quality and safe produce, and continuously works towards keeping the facilities in line with the statutory and regulatory requirements complying with FSSAI, legal metrology, and follows the principles and standards of ISO 22000:2018.

Our endeavour in food safety also depends on improving employees’ competence skills with regular training, by implementing good warehouse practices, and driving the organization’s food and safety management systems through efficient and effective digitization. A food safety team leader, who monitors the performance of food safety management systems regularly and reports the results to the top management for further improvement, is also in place.

WayCool procures fresh produce from farmers through its network of collection centres, and delivers quality products to industries such as e-commerce platforms, food services and big retail chain customers.

TUV SUD conducted a two-stage audit at our Virugambakkam distribution centre as per the scope for receiving, sorting and grading, storage, packing, and dispatch of fresh fruits and vegetables. WayCool sought the certification by adhering to food safety management standards. After the successful completion of the audit, the distribution centre is now one amongst a few companies certified as ISO 22000:2018. At WayCool, we believe that safe food should not be a luxury, but a necessity. And each of our decisions is in line with creating a safe food ecosystem for all.
