Quality

“Quality and taste every time” is not just Clover Leaf’s mantra – it’s our commitment to you. Clover Leaf has a wide variety of canned seafood products, and although canning and cooking methods vary from one product to another, they must all pass strict quality control measures before they earn the privilege of wearing the Clover Leaf label.

 

You can expect great looking, great tasting products – can after can after can. That’s because our Quality Assurance team tests samples from every single production batch and grades them to make sure they meet the industry leading standards we have set for our products. Only on their approval does the product get shipped to the warehouse, the marketplace, and your table. And routine audits performed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirm this high level of product safety and quality, year after year.

An integral component of Clover Leaf’s Quality Assurance is our intensive supplier and product assessment program. Clover Leaf will only source product from manufacturing facilities that meet or exceed Canadian government regulations. In fact, Clover Leaf is the only marketer of canned seafood products in Canada that has full time quality assurance and procurement staff in South East Asia where the majority of tuna and specialty products are sourced, leading to greater assurance of product quality and safety.

All manufacturing facilities supplying Clover Leaf products must be operating under internationally recognized Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety principles. Further, all facilities are routinely put through a rigorous inspection to ensure that they are continuing to measure up to our standards. If not, the facility is no longer permitted to supply products that will bear the Clover Leaf name.

Achieving the desired results is accomplished by utilizing the expertise of Clover Leaf’s Technical Services and Quality Assurance departments. This team is comprised of:

  • Thermal process specialists
  • Food scientists
  • Certified sensory graders
  • Process engineers
  • Packaging specialists
  • HACCP trained Auditors

The combination of industry experience, science based quality assurance systems, and inspection throughout the life cycle of our products is your guarantee of the safety and high quality you’ve come to expect from a brand leader like Clover Leaf!
