Quality and sustainability first
Quality and sustainability are a commitment and a fundamental objective for us. This is why we have chosen the most authoritative certifications and we strictly respect their standards.
The BRC Global Standard (acronym of British Retail Consortium) for Food Safety was developed with the aim of defining the safety and quality requirements, as well as the operational criteria that must be met by companies operating in the food production sector in stages of production, packaging, distribution and sale of food and beverages. It is based on HACCP and also standardizes the work environment and product and process controls. This standard is internationally recognized within the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative), an international initiative whose main purpose is to strengthen and promote food safety throughout the supply chain.
Adopted by over 20,000 companies in 130 countries , the standard is accepted by 70% of the top 10 global retailers, 60% of the top 10 fast-service restaurants, and 50% of the top 25 manufacturers.
The IFS Standards currently include six standards, developed by and for food and non-food business operators involved in all stages of the supply chain.
All standards are process standards that help users during the implementation of legislative regulations referred to food safety and / or product safety and provide uniform guidelines for food / product safety, also considering quality aspects.
IFS certificate means that an IFS certified company has established the necessary processes to ensure food and / or product safety and that it has considered and applied the customer’s requirements.

The Equalitas Standard was developed in accordance with the 17 objectives (SDGs) established by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development approved in New York by the UN General Assembly on 25 September 2015. The objectives refer to fundamental themes for global development and aim to end poverty, fight inequality, tackle climate change and build peaceful societies that respect human rights.
Sustainability is to be understood not as an immutable state or vision, but rather as a continuous process, which recalls the need to combine the three fundamental and inseparable dimensions of development: Environmental, Economic and Social.
