Ensuring consistent product quality and food safety are top priorities in our business operations.
Manufacture of our products proceeds according to the highest standards to ensure food quality and safety. Established procedures govern the inspection of:
- Incoming goods
- Temperature of semi-finished products
- The heating process
- Temperature control in areas and during transport
- Metal detection
Precautions and Analyses
In order to ensure continuous quality and food safety, checks and analyses will also be continually conducted outside the production process. This involves:
- Sensory inspection
- Chemical analyses
- Microbiological analysis
- Site sampling for Listeria

Referencing and traceability
A sample from each production batch is saved and stored until the expiry date of the batch. All process and analysis results are saved until at least two years after expiry of the sell-by date.
A bottom-up and top-down full traceability is possible using the name and batch code, or expiry date. Traceability tests are carried out regularly as part of internal audits.
