Cabot Corporation Celebrates First FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification

Cabot Norit Activated Carbon site in Klazienaveen, the Netherlands
reaches highest level in food safety assurance

 (NYSE: CBT) today announced that its activated carbon
plant in Klazienaveen, the Netherlands has received FSSC 22000 Food
Safety System Certification, the highest level of food safety assurance.
This is the first Cabot Norit Activated Carbon site to receive this
certification, which will cover Cabot’s
NORIT® E 153 activated carbon colorant portfolio
as well as
foodstuff purification products such as NORIT® SA4 PAH, NORIT® SA ULTRA
PAH and NORIT® SA5 PAH HF carbons, all for edible
oils purification
. It is a significant milestone for Cabot Norit
Activated Carbon, as the company adds this extra layer of assurance for
food manufacturers seeking the safest, highest quality ingredients and
purification products.

Through third-party certification, FSSC
22000 certification
demonstrates effective management to control
food safety hazards, minimize risks and enable the production of safe
food. This includes measures to demonstrate the product produced is safe
to use and not contaminated with harmful biological, chemical or
physical contaminants. The certification is recognized by the Global
Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and encompasses the international and
independent standards in food safety: ISO 22000, ISO TS 22002-1 Food
Manufacturing requirements and FSSC additional requirements.

“This latest certification underscores our long-time commitment to
manufacturing excellence and food safety and Cabot is proud to be among
the companies that have dedicated themselves to food safety and
successfully met all the FSSC 22000 requirements for certification,”
said Bart Genemans, Cabot Norit Activated Carbon interim Eurasia general
manager. “The FSSC plays an important role in the continued improvement
of food safety systems across the entire food supply chain worldwide and
helps drive confidence and trust that food is safe.”

The certification supplements the site’s well-established safety, health
& environmental management program, which includes ISO 9001 and 14001
certifications, cGMP Part II (Medicinal Products for Human and
Veterinary Use), as well as a long-time commitment to a Hazard Analysis
Critical Control Point (HACCP) approach to manufacturing operations.
This accomplishment demonstrates Cabot’s continuous improvement and
commitment to the food industry.
