With the wisdom of
the baker mother
Quality truly has roots at our house. The founder of our bakery, Saimi Moilanen, gave her sons a tip: “Love, honesty and the ingredients”. Still today, this has been our common guideline in our work towards the greatest culinary pleasures.
Quality is the root, and everything else, of baking
System certificates and special diet certificates are an unseperable part of the Moilas quality. Everyone of us is committed to their standards as well as continuous development.
Delicious flavours are not enough on their own. Our goal every day is to ensure product safety, consistent quality, good work habits and production hygiene. High quality also applies to our customer service and delivery security.
Along with our certificates, we meet the quality and product safety standards in domestic markets as well as in exports. Independent operators audit our production facilities and working habits on a yearly basis.
HACCP as a starting point
Our quality systems are based on Codex Alimenetarius HACCP principles (Hazard Analyzing Critical Control Point), which guide self-supervision.
HACCP is based on the critical points of the production processes, in other words, process stages that can severely weaken the product quality if the process stage is not supervised or checked. One example of ensuring safety is the use of metal detectors during product checking. HACCP helps us decrease product quality variations, prevent problems and strengthen product safety.
Product safety is an absolute prerequisite for our operations. British Retail Consortium (BRC) certification ensures that all Moilas bakery products meet the requirements of the global food safety standard. Certified systems also ensures the continuous development of operations.
The standard in AA rating has been issued to Moilas Paakarinpolku and Hietatie bakeries. An independent third-party audits are performed annually.
Oiva is a publishing system for the supervision of grocery information coordinated by the Finnish Food Authority, which encourages companies to take care of grocery hygiene and product safety. Grocery supervisors of different municipalities conduct the Oiva reviews.

RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil)
The RSPO accountability certificate ensures that the palm-oil used by Moilas companies is produced responsibly and sustainably. During the purchasing process of palm oil, we implement a so-called Segregation option, which involves the physical separation of certified palm-oil from non-certified palm oil sources.
SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange)
The SEDEX certificate focuses on the working conditions of workers. During audits, workplace safety, healthiness and the rightful treatment of workers are ensured.
SWA (Supplier Workplace Accountability)
McDonald´s worldwide SWA certificate focuses on the workplace conditions of workers. During audits, workplace safety, healthiness and the rightful treatment of workers are ensured.
SQMS (Supplier Quality Management System)
SQMS is McDonald´s company’s own worldwide product safety- and quality standard. Oy Moilas GF Ltd´s production of gluten-free hamburgers and product management have both been certified according to the standard. Audits are conducted annually.
Especially large foreign customers set certified quality systems as a term for production partnerships. The clients themselves conduct audits in addition to the system certificates – usually once every year. The audit can also happen unannounced.
Special diet certificates
The label of a gluten-free product
Every Moilas Gluten-Free and Moilas Free From frozen bakery product is authorized by the Association of European Coeliac Societies to have a gluten-free label on the package. You can check these products from the catalogue of the Finnish Coeliac Society.
The label is an indication of the fact that the products and their raw ingredients fulfil the requirements for being a gluten-free product based on their cleanliness and meet legislative requirements. A grocery can include a maximum amount of 20mg/kg of gluten (20 ppm, parts per million).
We are even stricter when it comes to gluten. We only use raw ingredients that contain less than 5 ppm of gluten in our gluten-free baking.
All of our gluten-free products´ raw ingredients are naturally gluten-free. This means that we do not use, for example, wheat starch. Moilas Gluten-Free and Moilas Free From bakery products are baked in our fully gluten-free bakery in Pieksämäki.
Those who follow a Halal diet can use the Oy Moilas GF Ltd gluten-free bakery products, which do not contain meat. The Halal certificate auditing is completed yearly.
