Regulatory Authority

Haliburton processes high acid (low pH) acidified and pasteurized food products under the jurisdiction and licensing of the State of California Department of Public Health (Cannery License Program) and the US Food and Drug Administration (Low Acid Aseptic Process Registration). The State of California requires all existing and new products and processes to be filed with the State along with all formula information prior to approval for manufacturing. The State of California issues a unique product registration number for every product manufactured under the State’s Cannery Inspection Program.

Haliburton currently has over 100 registered products with the State of California. A State of California inspector inspects all pasteurized acidified food products manufactured by Haliburton on a twice weekly basis. All products are tested for compliance under the State’s Cannery Inspection Program and assigned an approval once tested and released. The US FDA requires a process approval and registration prior to manufacturing any new products and conducts random unannounced inspections to ensure compliance.
