What does it even mean, when we say that we are fulfilling high standards of the European food safety regulations and are therefore certified by the EU? Here we want to give you a quick introduction to the most important aspects to clarify why we emphasize this and which benefits arise for consumers and thus your businesses.
What is it about?
The central goal of the European Commission’s Food Safety policy is to ensure a high level of protection of human health regarding the food industry — Europe’s largest manufacturing and employment sector. The Commission’s guiding principle – primarily set out in its White Paper on Food Safety – is to apply an integrated approach from farm to fork covering all sectors of the food chain. That’s why food processing companies who want to trade their goods within the European Union need to be certified by authorities. To get certified a company needs to prove for example that it holds up the high standards regarding hygiene in all processes, food safety including it’s specific HACCP-concept, uninterrupted cooling chain, documentation etc. and also needs a full fledged self-monitoring system to ensure european citizens health. To keep this EU certification it is monitored thoroughly on-site by local authorities like official veterinarians on a regular basis.
