Food Safety and Quality

Transparent Supply Chain

Avena operates stringent Food Safety and Quality Management Systems (FSQMS), developed to minimize allergen contamination and monitor key microbiological indicators.

The FSQMS team has a sound understanding of allergens, like gluten, and the level of testing required to guarantee ingredients that are gluten-free. Avena facilities do not process any labelled allergens.

Traceability of ingredients right back to the farmer and field is key – it provides a fully transparent supply chain.

Avena Foods Purity Protocol gluten-free oat ingredients are Glyphosate Residue Free certified by The Detox Project. Products or ingredients bearing a Glyphosate Residue Free Label contain less than 10 parts per billion of the herbicide.
