Certified Quality You Can Rely On
Trust is good, independent controls are better
Along with the legal requirements and regulations, internationally binding certifications set the standard for our quality management system. In addition, we would like to provide you with an overview of our certifications.
For more than 10 years, our company was certified in compliance with ISO 9001 and IFS. With FSSC 22000, we have chosen a stronger, more suitable product-oriented approach to developing and improving our company’s product safety management system.
Since 1997 the requirements according to EU-eco-regulation 2018/848 for placing products into circulation with reference to organic cultivation are audited annually by an independent board of control.
