Approach to Quality and Hygiene
We produce food that we would be happy
to feed our own children.
In order to assure both quality and hygiene at the
processing and production stages, we at Rumi Japan
(Morimatsu Suisan Reito Co., Ltd.), have continued to
pursue the latest methods in food safety above and beyond
the requirements of our HACCP certification (issued in
April, 2000). Furthermore, we fully understand the workplace
organizational roles of 5S, and have promoted constant
improvements in our workplace environment in conformity
with HACCP standards. We make strong efforts to create
safe and reliable products with the awareness that we
privileged to work in an HACCP-certified company. The
slogan for all of our workers is "we produce food that we
would be happy to feed our own children."
In January 2004 Morimatsu Suisan Reito was certified under the
rigorous EUHACCP standard. Under this certification we have
had to qualify and quantify our production processes, thereby:
1. Further enhancing our company’s social standing.
2. Further proving the quality and safety of our products.
3. Heightening the safety and social awareness of all
4. Strengthening our corporate competitiveness and social
With this certification we are also able to export our products
directly to consumers in the European Union and spread the

We at Morimatsu Suisan Reito Company have always been
determined to produce the safest and best quality product
that we can. With our HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical
Control Point) certification we have instituted systems that
quantify our caution in production, resulting in greater
confidence for our customers in regards to product safety.
The original HACCP system was developed in the US in the
1960s but has been enhanced in manifold since then.
The HACCP system works by evaluating food safety at all
stages of the production process to ensure that foodstuffs
are never subject to the risk of contamination or damage.
The system works all through the supply chain to cover
control points during procurement, production, distribution
and retailing. The international HACCP standard has not only
provided us with a marketing edge, but it also marks
Morimatsu Suisan Reito as a world class company, a company
that holds product safety as crucial to ongoing success in
markets both around the corner and around the world.
- ISO 9001:2008
In addition to our EUHACCP and HACCP certifications we
are also certified under the ISO9001:2008 (International
Standard Organization) management system. This system
recognizes the extension of our product quality standards to
embrace our management systems as well as our production
systems, ensuring that these two key elements match in
quality. In addition, our JISQ9001:2008 certification is an
internationally-recognized organizational system standard that
ensures that we are constantly striving to improve our business
management systems. We do all of this to make sure that you,
our valued customers, are assured of the best service and
quality at all times.
Our international standards also include British Retail
Consortium (BRC) certification. This accreditation is a
recognition that our quality food products that have been
produced in the kind of quality environment necessary to
meet the standards of the British Retail Association. BRC
accreditation is a combination of the HACCP and ISO systems
and is indispensable for companies wishing to sell food
products in Britain. Under this system we are able to ship
directly and unconditionally to British supermarkets. Morimatsu
Suisan Reito are therefore one of the recognized suppliers to
the British retail sector.
