KOMPLET(ELY) “safe” quality under hand and seal / our certification documents

“In the beginning, there was the product; then, man invented quality, and after a certain time, man realised that a quality product needed a seal of approval.”

Daniel Mühlemann (*1959), nature photographer, aphorist and translator

 

We are no strangers to quality management, HACCP, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), hygiene guidelines and continuous improvement processes. On the contrary: As an integral part of our daily business, they are the cornerstone of our quality, food safety and corporate policies.

FSSC 22000 (=Food Safety System Certification)

From 1998 to 2013, our company was certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001.

In 2014, we took things to the next level, and extended our product quality and internalised policies by certified “food safety”.

UTZ Certification

With our 2013 UTZ Certification, we support sustainable cocoa cultivation, and therefore better future prospects for farmers and their families. Learning new cultivation methods improves working conditions, allowing the farmers take better care of their families and the environment.

KAT (= Controlled Alternative Animal Husbandry)

KAT is the most important supervisory body for the inspection of eggs from alternative hen husbandry systems in Germany and the neighbouring EU countries. With our certification, we support and guarantee the traceability and source for controlled alternative animal husbandry since 2014.

RSPO (= Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil)

Due to its versatile application, it is no longer possible to imagine countless products without palm oil. In order to minimise environmental damage through conventional palm oil production, we became a member of the RSPO organisation in 2014. As part of the supply chain, we promote sustainable palm oil production and stand up for environmentally friendly, ethical and socially adequate product generation.
