FSSC22000(International Food Safety Standard)Certified Factory
We have established over 1,000 sanitation and quality control standards to maintain a high level of quality for our entire factory, including factory-internal standards, production standards, and sanitation standards.
In order to stably provide products that are of good quality as well as safe and secure, we have implemented inspections in each department through our process of creating a product from raw water, and we have constructed sanitation control regulations, equipment/ an employee operation management system, as well as a sanitation control system.
Below, you’ll see how natural spring water from Kirishima becomes “Shibushi Water” mineral water.
Our water source is a Shibushi-city-managed source called Heijo located next to our factory in the Anraku district.
(high inspection standards and operational management)
For safety, we perform multi-level filtering and then sterilize our water using high heat.
(Heat processing is a quality control standard)
After further filtering, the water is filled into bottles while still at a high temperature.
(Only inspected and disinfected bottles are used, and our products are made with safety measures in place and in a germ-free environment)
Caps that have been UV sterilized and have had their static electricity removed are used.
(The cap tightening values are also adjusted)
After being filled, the bottles are laid down to sterilize the full interior of each container.
(Products are made with lay down sterilization and in a completely germ-free environment)
After the surface of the bottles have been sterilized, cooling is performed.
(The entire product is sterilized)
Thermal contraction is used to affix labels and to print the expiration date.
(Camera inspections are used to conduct checks)
Image inspection is used to conduct a final check, and then product sampling inspections.
(Final product inspections, etc.)
The water is packed into cardboard boxes and weight checks as well as other inspections are performed.
(Final checks per single case, expiration date printing, etc.)
The water is loaded onto pallets and prepared for shipping.
(Automatic robots are used to accurately load the product)
The water is delivered to our customers throughout Japan.
