This means that quality is guaranteed throughout the production processes and best in class quality of our final products is assured.

We usually agree individual specifications with our customers and producers where we set the parameters for microbiology, residue of plant protection agents and the valuable substances. We use a number of accredited laboratories to ensure the agreed standards.
