What if we could trust what we buy,
every time we buy,
that it is what it says on the label;
that it won’t make us sick;
that it does not damage the planet, harm the community,
or exploit the people producing it?
is the road that we had set foot on since the beginning of our factory, to find the answer for those concerns, and to connect our organizational behaviors to the well-being of the people involved with Aoki
Steve JobsTechnology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.
Aoki invest in technology firstly to improve product quality, food safety and management, to ensure all the values and benefits to our customers. Secondly, we want technology that can empower our employees, to make their work easier, safer, faster, more efficient and less worries. Thirdly, we want to promote an innovation culture, where everyone are able to contribute to the improvement of work and life at Aoki, be scientifically literate at what they do and can be educated further.
We use meat separators from BIBUN, made in Japan, SUS 304 materials, for both processing lines.
At maximum the machine run at 7000 kg/hour capacity.
Our meat separators use synthesis nylon belts for resistance again scratches during processing, hence eliminating the foreign matter risk from common rubber belts.
Aoki also install extra safety cover to protect our employees.
For all machines in Aoki factory, we use food-grade oil and grease for maintenance.
Aoki invest in 02 wholly new stainless steel surimi lines with key machines : meat separators, pumps, refiners, screw-presses, silent cutter blenders, all imported from Japan (BIBUN).
Our factory is a closed-design with one-way-flow to prevent cross-contamination. The walls’ panels and doors are imported from Turkey, having heavy curtains and Epoxy painted to prevent insects and combat moisture.
A camera system of 42 cameras in total. 08 points of security, 28 points of processing control and 06 point of cross-contamination prevention with 2 years time storage.
Aoki has 05 stainless steel contact freezers with total capacity at 3 MT/ hour, freezing temperature at – 35°C.
Aoki storage can hold approximately 500 MT of finished products while keeping them under – 25°C for quality
Aoki is one of the very few surimi factories in Vietnam to invest in X-ray machine to further prevent the risk of foreign matter
Electricity unstable is a problem in Vietnam, thus Aoki import 02 power-generators from America with 1,560 kW/h capacity to maintain operation of the factory 100% of time.
The difficulty of building management system depend not only on the commitment of the organization’s leadership, but also on the educational level of the local labor force – the cogs and gears of the system. Aoki locates in the rural area, hence the task of creating and maintaining management systems is not easy. However, being a joint-venture with France, Aoki commit to build 03 International Standards in 2015 – 2016 and, within a year time, bringing good practices to our factory, to apply and continuously improve ourselves in a systematic way of three main aspects: Quality, Food Safety, and Environment.
