FDA: Food and Drug Administration
FDA certification is a legal obligation and a basic requirement for companies like us who want to export food and drink products to the USA.
It is achieved by meeting stringent standards and is maintained by passing biannual audits of those standards. This ensures that food products destined for the US market are quality, safe, hygienic and appropriately labelled..
IFS: International Featured Standards
IFS certifications relate to six quality standards and are internationally recognised, but are not mandatory. We have voluntarily applied for IFS Food 7 as an additional form of company self-control. The IFS assesses the conformity of products and production processes with regard to food safety and quality. It applies to suppliers who are involved in all stages of food processing after agricultural processing.
IQNet: International Certification Network
IQNet certification demonstrates social responsibility in a company’s organisational structure and is obtained after several initial audits and over time. It is not compulsory and we have chosen to apply for it in order to position ourselves in the market as a socially responsible company, as well as to provide evidence of excellence in sustainability management. Possessing it also allows us to improve communication and understanding of stakeholders’ expectations through constant analysis of the company context.
ISO 22000: Food Safety Management Systems
ISO 22000 is a voluntary international standard that certifies Food Safety Management Systems (FMS) in the field of materials in contact with food, and therefore relates to food packaging. It represents a set of technical standards aimed at ensuring hygienic safety through specific operational control procedures. We have acquired this certification because it helps us, on the one hand, to meet the demands of the authorities responsible for checking legal requirements and, on the other, to provide additional guarantees of our quality to the end consumer, commercial intermediaries and other companies with which we work.
ISO 9001 Quality Management System Certification
ISO 9001 is an international standard that focuses on customer satisfaction and the satisfaction of all the companies we work for. It ensures that the quality of our goods and services is maintained and improved over time. It assesses the context and all stakeholders, analyses risks and opportunities to define appropriate actions to control costs, increase productivity and reduce waste. For us and the approach we have taken to the company, this is a very important certification because it allows us to constantly monitor that we are delivering what we promise to our customers.
Kosher Parve Certification by Rabbi A. Locci
The Kosher Parve certifies that our food and facilities comply with Kosher rules: the set of precepts that regulate the eating style and nutrition of practising Jews. It therefore allows us to address Jewish markets with confidence, guaranteeing absolute compliance with their food regulations.
In order to obtain and maintain this certification we undergo frequent audits by a specialised rabbinical body as well as receiving visits from representatives of the body over time.
WHA: World Halal Authority Certification
The WHA is the most accredited and recognised Halal certification body in the world. It is the only one in Europe capable of guaranteeing, with its high standards, that our company is suitable for Islamic markets. After passing several initial validations and others over time, we can safely address the Halal markets in accordance with Islamic culture. Halal is a set of precepts that regulate everything that is permitted in terms of behaviour, language, clothing and even food.
