Throughout the manufacturing process, several techniques are included to assure the quality of the bread. In the dividing/rounding stage, cut dough are passed through a check weigher so that every loaf weighs the same. Cut dough that are over- or underweight drop from the conveyor belt into a pan. The dough collected here is put back into the mixer. In every 1000 loaves baked, one is randomly selected for quality check. Here, several parameters are tested (e.g. temperature). This bread is also sent to the laboratory and is subjected to several tests. In the packaging system, visual and physical testing is done by the QC analyst Before the slicing stage, every bread is passed through a metal detector to ensure that the bread are free of metal contaminants(e.g. Lead) Gardenia has been ISO 9001:2008 certified and HACCP(Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) certified since 2003.

Indirect firing system is used during oven baking wherein environmental fuel is used As the loaves leave the automatic slicer, some are not properly sliced and some are accidentally dropped on the floor. These unwholesome bread are collected and are later sold as fish meals.

And to do this, Gardenia collects all of its products from the market every three days after its release even though it has not reached its expiration date yet.
