Here at Kyriakides Mushrooms we take your health and safety very seriously.
Being in the food industry, we understand how important it is that our products are safe to consume. That is why we are the only company in the local mushroom sector that has achieved the ISO22000:2005 (HACCP) certification for all processes - production, harvesting, packaging and distribution.
Have you heard of HACCP before? It stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points and it was developed for NASA to ensure that the food provided for astronauts was safe. Now, the principles of HACCP are applied to mushroom growing and packing in our premises.
How do we do it? Well, first all our substrate is pasteurised before any mushroom spawn is added to it and all our growing rooms are sterilised with steam between crops. Moreover, we have regular laboratory tests of the water we use for irrigation as well as testing the mushrooms themselves to ensure they are safe for you to consume. And of course, all our mushroom harvesters wear hair nets and hand gloves to ensure proper hygiene.
See? We told you we take it seriously.
