Incoming goods –
strict controls for greater security
As soon as the numerous spices have arrived in our warehouses from all around the world, they are validated and subjected to stringent incoming goods controls. The legal and international rules, as well as the voluntary rules to which we subject ourselves, are particularly important here. The inspection plans and processes for this purpose are defined in our management standard concerning safe products – the FSSC 22OOO, the most stringent rule guaranteeing food safety – and are validated and checked by an independent body on a yearly basis.
Only spices that meet the strict international criteria (ESA/ASTA) for quality are approved for further processing or for sale by our microbiologists and food engineers.
