Quality management and product safety
Südzucker is cognizant of its responsibility as a manufacturer and supplier of food and animal feed. Producing safe, high-quality products is thus of key importance.
All divisions have implemented quality management systems to ensure that their products are safe and meet the desired quality standards – from the development stage of a product, through procurement, production and transportation, up to and including delivery to customers.
Customers in the food industry assign significant importance to checking the safety and legal compliance of our products. External certification organizations conduct the audits. Accordingly, our production processes are geared toward internationally recognized standards with extensive specifications and standardized assessment processes, such as IFS Food, BRC Global Standard Food Safety and FSSC 22000. Today, all Südzucker production plants that produce food have certificates that are equivalent to the Global Food Safety Initiative Standard GFSI. Various production locations have specific additional certificates for certain product groups, according to special customer requirements; for example, kosher or halal.
