Biesterfeld International receives IFS Broker certification in the area of "Procurement and marketing of food supplements such as amino acids and plant extracts as well as food additives". With this certification, the company demonstrates its commitment to ensuring compatibility and transparency throughout the entire supply chain.
IFS Broker certification is a standard specifically developed for trading houses and importeurs in the food industry. Based on a uniform evaluation system, this standard not only guarantees food safety but also the quality of procedures and products. Biesterfeld’s internal processes were intensively tested in recent weeks in accordance with the international standard and earned the company the successful certification. The company was able to comply with all given specifications and legal requirements. In addition to the traceability of all processes through the SAP system, Biesterfeld's transparency in the area of purchasing and sales was also worthy of note by the inspection facility.
Soraia Nunes, Product Manager, Biesterfeld International, is delighted by the successfully acquired certification: "In recent years, our HACCP concept and ISO 9001 certification had already put us in a very good position. So with the IFS Broker certification we have now reached another major milestone. It helps us meet the ever-growing demands of our customers and gain worldwide access to new markets as an internationally operating distributor.”
