Odd Burger manufacturing facility earns HACCP certification
The vegan fast-food chain said the certification is important as it plans to add new locations outside of Ontario and Canada.
Vegan fast-food chain Odd Burger Corp. received Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) certification at its food manufacturing facility in Ontario.
HACCP certification validates that Odd Burger has adequate measures in place to ensure food safety and quality control. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) requires HACCP certification for federally registered food producers.
In an Aug. 16 news release, Odd Burger officials say that HACCP certification is also a “significant step” in its expansion as it adds restaurant locations outside of its home province and outside the country.
Odd Burger manufactures its own plant-based proteins and dairy alternatives, which represent about 70 per cent of the food sold in its restaurants.
Odd Burger has locations in Toronto, Windsor, and Vaughan, recently announced its fourth, fifth, and sixth locations will open by summer’s end. The company plans to open 20 locations by this time next year, including a flagship New York City restaurant, its first in the U.S.
The company was founded as Globally Local, and recently rebranded as Odd Burger.
