American Institute of Baking (AIB) standard
The AIB-standard is based on GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices). The standard aims to ensure food safety in the chain by evaluating food safety risks and continuous improvements. This standard also provides technical support and training. Through inspections, audits, meetings and training a higher level of food safety is achieved. The difference with the current food safety standards, such as FSSC, BRC and IFS is that the AIB has a larger focus on the workplace. They have priorities in the field of pest control, cleaning, maintenance, order, hygiene and cleanliness. Then the documented quality system is tested with specific requirements from AIB perspective like Food Defense, Chemical Control Program, Self-inspection program, Allergen Control Program, Preventive Maintenance, Supplier management program and of course the HACCP program. Sonneveld takes part since 2007 in the ‘Food Safety Audit’ system of AIB.

Deliberately unannounced audit
Sonneveld deliberately opts for the unannounced audit, because we believe in openness and transparency. At any time of day visitors, regulators and auditors should be able to visit the location.
