cheese factory reaches international standard.
The Forfar Dairy is stepping
into a new era with accreditation by the Canadian Food Inspection
Agency (CFIA) as a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point
The Forfar Dairy made its first
round of cheese in 1863 and is now the oldest and smallest independent
cheese factory in Eastern Ontario.
CFIA personnel were at the
dairy on March 25, 2003 to give the company this new recognition.
HACCP has become the market
standard for food safety worldwide and is an internationally
recognized means of assuring food safety
from harvest to consumption. Forfar Dairy products will now be
able to be marketed anywhere in the world.
Forfar employees have worked
long and hard with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to implement
monitoring to reach this international standard. A product and
system based approach for quality control protects Forfar cheese
at every stage of the manufacturing and delivery process.
The dairy built its reputation
for taste on its traditional cheddar and curds but now manufactures
25 different types of cow milk cheese, ten varieties of goat
cheese and three kinds of sheep milk cheese.
We are very proud of what we
have accomplished and hope you will soon visit us either in person
or at our Online Store.
