The first hospital in India to be HACCP certified by DNV, Netherlands
Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) is considered the apex certification when it comes to quality, safety and hygiene of food. The HACCP methodology is a structured, preventive approach to food safety that optimizes efforts to provide the consumer with safe food. An efficient food safety management system tailored to the processes will support the organisation's efforts to prevent food safety failures and associated costs, and ensure legal compliance.
The certification process involved audits conducted by, DNV Business Assurance Management, Netherlands. HACCP certification ensures that the systems for managing food safety are in place and adequate prerequisite programmes are established for ensuring safe food.
At the P. D. Hinduja Hospital, the auditors audited the receiving, pre-preparation, cooking and serving of Indian and Continental vegetarian food of the hospital. In other words they audited the entire food chain, raw material storage to the cooked food being served to patients and others in the hospital and finally presented the certificate.
With certification P. D. Hinduja Hospital has become the first hospital in India to have got certified by DNV, Netherlands and thus proving once again that it indeed stands by its commitment of "Quality Healthcare to All" – a legacy followed from the time of Shri Parmanand Deepchand Hinduja, founder of P. D. Hinduja Hospital.
