Production
Advanced production systems ensure products of the highest quality
All production activities are rooted in stringent quality and sanitation control. In the manufacture of CALPIS, for example, all processes - from the receipt of raw materials to fermentation, maturation, filling, and packaging - are computer controlled. Also, Calpis monitors critical control points through sophisticated quality control and outgoing inspections. These activities ensure products that our customers can trust.
The filling process, especially, is rigidly sanitation-controlled, from main systems and equipment to scrub-room facilities to advanced fabrics for clean-room clothing.
Additionally, all Calpis plants apply the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) system in raw materials processing and subsequent processes.
