Food Safety and euroTcup
EURO T CUP has taken extreme care to ensure that all of our products, no matter what the origin, are safe for consumption. The safety of our products is tested and proven by the following companies and methods:
Laboratory Testing of Loose Teas
All examinations and tests are conducted by an accredited laboratory for food examination. The firm meets the requirements of standards ISO 9001 as amended by the EU.
Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) Certification
HACCP is a program designed to assist in analyzing the food product cycle from the raw ingredient stage to the finished product. This is a systematic preventive approach to food safety and pharmaceutical safety that addresses physical, chemical, and biological hazards as a means of prevention rather than finished product inspection. Our tea comes from source that underwent a rigorous process to obtain HACCP certification and is audited annually to ensure all processes and documentation is maintained.
This certification has been awarded to our source in lights of its management quality system and customer service. Following ISO 9001 standards guarantees improved coordination of company management – from receiving raw materials to processing goods and distribution.
P3 – Total Hygiene Management
All sanitation in our supplier’s company meets strict hygienic standards for all production and storage processes.
The EURO T CUP organic range is properly certified and adheres to all production processes. Records concerning organic products are subject to strict supervision.
Safe Stainless Steel Tea Accessories
EURO T CUP uses 18/8 grade stainless steel exclusively in all metal products – infusers, strainers, teapots, etc. Unlike many lower grade stainless products, typically, but not limited to those found in dollar stores, 18/8 grade will not corrode when exposed to the Tannins found in loose tea.
EURO T CUP takes great care to ensure that our teapots, cups and associated porcelain products are glazed in 100% lead free glaze.
All our teas, packaging and stainless steel tea accessories conform to the rigorous standards of the following agencies:
- USFDA (United States Food and Drug Administration)
- CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency)
- EFSA (European Food Standards Authority)
Safe tea tastes much better!
