MediKane’s audit systems cover the key ingredient suppliers manufacturing processes, incoming raw materials, finished product effectiveness and product safety.
The underlying philosophy is prevention through an auditing programme. MediKane works in conjunction with suppliers and monitors their process and product output.
Before product is used it undergoes independent laboratory analysis at NATA accredited laboratories to ensure chemical residue, agricultural pest and heavy metals levels are in line with Food Standards Australia requirements.
At critical stages of production, in-house quality assurance tests are conducted for product consistency (particle size), colour, organoleptic properties, carbohydrate content, moisture content, microbiological loads and absence of allergens. These methods follow Australian laboratory standardised methods in line with the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) requirements as closely as possible.
The final quality control stage involves post-production analysis related to product consistency and reference samples being sent to an independent NATA accredited laboratory for analysis to confirm that the product is safe, adheres to all food safety, regulatory requirements and allows completion of a NutriKane D Certificate of Analysis.
Certificates of Analysis (CoA) and Certificates of Conformation (CoC) are supplied with each batch. MediKane’s other raw materials suppliers provide CoA’s or CoC’s with their products.
All packaging partners hold accreditations in line with Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), the NSW Food Authority and Hazards Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) certificates.
