We are committed to providing Canadians with safe, wholesome, premium quality products and constantly looking for new methods and technologies that will further enhance food safety at every stage of production. As such, Lilydale has strict food safety processes and product specifications in place. We've implemented these comprehensive food safety processes and procedures as part of HACCP, the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point System. (HACCP was developed by Pillsbury and NASA in the 1960s to eliminate the contamination of food for astronauts.
We also recognize the importance ofÂ minimizing our potential impact on the environment. Through an in-house corporate environmental program, we regularly monitor and strive to enhance our environmental performance.
Continued growth is our goal as we strive to maintain our position in the marketplace as a leadingÂ poultry provider. New product development continues to be a critical part of our plan in order to expand in both the retail and food service sectors. This goal, coupled with a focus on technology and marketing initiatives, will provide new opportunities for both Lilydale and its valued customers. – less–ZoomInfo
