Manufacturing

May-Foods established its own manufacturing center in 1998 in Fryazino, near Moscow. Cooperation with leading Western experts allowed May-Foods to implement cutting-edge technological solutions using world leaders in the food industry as our example.

Compliance with global quality standards has always been the top priority in the development of the manufacturing center. In 2004, May-Foods became an industry pioneer among Russian enterprises by passing the quality management system test for compliance with ISO 9001:2000, conducted by the German auditing firm TUV SUD.

In 2008, TUV SUD again confirmed our quality management system complied with ISO 9001:2008.

In 2010, the food safety management system was successfully certified by the British Standards Institution (BSI) for compliance with ISO 22000:2005.

May-Foods is fitted with modern equipment produced by world-renowned manufacturers - Teepack, IMA, Brandman-lake, Tsubakimoto - and is capable of producing up to 50,000 tons of products per year. The total area of the manufacturing facility is over 5 hectares and employs over 1,000 workers.

In spring 2012, May-Foods' manufacturing center received the highest rating from BSI as a result of a corporate quality management and food safety system audit. Compliance with ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 22000:2005 was verified. This became the latest proof of the corporate management system's perfect quality.
