For the second consecutive year, Eli’s Cheesecake has received a “Superior” rating for Food Safety from AIB International, the highly regarded independent international auditing organization. “Superior” is the highest AIB audit rating achievable.
AIB certification demands that rigorous quality control processes and programs be in place throughout the facility to ensure contamination-free products for the food industry. As part of the audit requirements, Eli’s Cheesecake had to demonstrate appropriate security measures, established cleaning and maintenance procedures, and stringent control of all incoming and in-process materials, as well as the absence of food and drink at workstations, as well as the use of hair and beard nets are among the controls that contribute to the contamination-free environment.
Eli’s Cheesecake congratulates Quality Assurance Manager, Michael Tamez, for his leadership in developing Eli’s Quality
Initiatives. “Receiving a ‘Superior’ rating for the second consecutive year is a source of pride for all of us at Eli’s,” according to President, Marc Schulman, “and demonstrates to our customers our commitment to food safety and continuous quality improvement.”
One highlight of the Eli’s Cheesecake Festival was the arrival of our Superior Rating Banner from AIB International. Here Mike Tamez holds up the Banner with the University of Illinois Extension Mobile Science Lab in the background.
