Does your protein supplier have Australian Dairy Export Accreditation?

In a world where quality and safety are paramount concerns for consumers, VPA Australia stands as a beacon of excellence in the nutritional supplement industry. With a steadfast commitment to delivering the highest quality Australian products at the best prices, our company takes proactive measures to ensure the products we offer meet the highest standards of quality and safety. At the heart of this commitment lie two pillars: regular food microbial testing and comprehensive environmental testing across all our warehouses.

The VPA Australia Difference

VPA Australia has always been dedicated to providing its customers with top-tier products that empower them on their fitness and wellness journeys. This dedication goes beyond just delivering products; it extends to the assurance that each item we offer is safe, pure, and of the highest quality. We believe that quality should never be compromised, and this belief drives our commitment to rigorous testing procedures with Eurofins, a trusted third-party NATA- accredited laboratory.

At VPA Australia, we understand that the safety of our products is non-negotiable. Our commitment to quality begins with stringent food microbial testing protocols that encompass every stage of production, from sourcing the finest raw materials to the final packaged product. By implementing advanced testing methodologies, we ensure that our supplements are free from harmful microorganisms.

Beyond the products themselves, we recognise the critical role that the production environment plays in ensuring product safety. VPA Australia follows industry standards by conducting comprehensive environmental testing in production facilities. This allows us to identify and eliminate potential sources of contamination before they can impact product quality.

Our environmental testing protocols cover various aspects of our facilities, including surfaces, equipment, water, and air quality. By maintaining a pristine production environment, we reduce the risk of cross-contamination and uphold our commitment to delivering products of the highest quality.

What is routine microbial testing, and why does VPA Australia perform it on its protein supplements?

Routine microbial testing is the regular examination of products and the VPA facility for the presence of microorganisms. VPA Australia conducts this testing to ensure the safety and quality of its protein supplements, protecting our customers from potential health risks.

How is microbial testing performed?

Environmental and product testing involve taking swabs, samples and air samples from various stages of the process and areas in the food processing facility. These samples are then cultured in a lab to identify and quantify the microorganisms present. The samples are analyzed only by a NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities)- accredited laboratory.

How often does VPA Australia conduct routine microbial testing on its products and facility?

VPA Australia conducts routine microbial testing at various stages of the production to maintain a high level of quality and safety. This is done once to twice a month, every month to ensure all products coming out of our facility are safe to consume.

What types of microorganisms are typically tested in VPA's routine microbial testing process?

VPA tests for a range of microorganisms, both in the environment and in the product. In the environment, we test specifically for Faecal coliforms and Escherichia coli in the water, plate count in the air and Salmonella on food-contact and non-food contact surfaces. In the products, we test for Salmonella and B. cereus.

What measures does VPA Australia take if microbial contaminants are detected in its products?

If microbial contaminants are found, VPA takes immediate corrective actions, which may include product disposal, production line sterilization, and investigation into the source of contamination to prevent recurrence. Additionally, we notify the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) and Safe Food Production Queensland (SFQ) and work on containing the affected finished products. We will work on resolving the issues before commencing production.

How does routine microbial testing ensure that VPA Australia's protein supplements are safe for consumption?

Routine microbial testing is a critical part of our quality control process, helping us identify and mitigate potential risks to ensure that our protein supplements meet safety standards and are safe for customers to consume.

What quality assurance certifications or standards does VPA Australia adhere to regarding microbial testing?

VPA Australia adheres to industry-standard quality assurance certifications, including Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP), Safe Food Production Queensland (SFQ) and ISO 9001:2015 which encompass rigorous testing protocols to ensure product safety and quality. We are also a dairy export-registered company endorsed by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF).
