HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) is an approach to food safety that is systematic and preventive. It helps food operators introduce procedures to make sure the food produced is safe to eat.
All the participants in the training have successfully passed the program and we are very pleased to have received the HACCP certification.

Bali's Culture Calendar
Purnama sasih kedasa - Full moon ceremony 14 April
The full moon (which has particular importance to the Balinese Hindus) will fall on Monday 14th April and ceremonies are held throughout the Hindu temples all across Bali. The Balinese that adhere to the Hindu Dharma religion will take offerings of food, fruit and flowers to the temple to be blessed by a priest. It is the essence of theses offerings that will be enjoyed by the deities. The Balinese themselves are then blessed by performing various rituals using holy water, incense smoke, petals and rice grains.
Usually during Purnama, the village temple will feature special prayers, wayang puppet performances, arja plays, Balinese dancing. Towering offerings called sesajen, are also brought to the temple.
Balinese believe if you bathe in water containing fragrant frangipani flowers, under the light of the full moon, you will enjoy youthfullness and good health. Planting fruit bearing trees is encouraged on Purnama. In Bali everything has a place and time.
Whether you chose to go to a festival or just want to watch the glow on the water, there is nothing like a full moon in Bali.
