Creating good products was not enough for us: that’s why we worked in order to assess and certify the safety of our products, our commitment and the adoption of organic production methods. What does it mean? Carry on reading.
The BRC and IFS standards are the main tools used by those who work in the mass distribution of the food chain to have the quality of marketed products assessed at an international level.
BRC Certification Body
BRC stands for British Retail Consortium, the main certifying body in Britain, which is considered one of the highest international standards for determining the safety of food products. It ensures the production of safe and quality products, which must comply to the regulations governing the industry thanks to a robust inspection system. When a company obtains the BRC certification, it certifies its efforts to reduce the likelihood of accidents and comply with the restrictions in force in the countries where the products are intended to ben marketed.
It is the international standard of the countries of Central Europe, inspired by the BRC model, which is used to determine the food safety of products and the quality of the workmanship. IFS Food, which means International Food Standards, comes into play when working with finished products or where there is the danger of contamination. Its aim is to control production through analysis and measurements and to monitor compliance with food legislation ensuring the consumer a high quality and completely safe product.
Bios – biological production control and certification
Bios is a certifying body that verifies that businesses adopt a biological production throughout the whole supply chain, including cultivation, processing and trade. It aims to especially encourage companies whose production is based on ancient typical and local products of the territory and those who promote biodiversity. The companies must also abide by the principles of health, ecology, fairness and preventive care.
