The company’s plants at Bad Rappenau and Eschenbach have been certified according to British Retail Consortium (BRC) and Institute of Packaging (IOP) for meeting standards for food safety in packaging.
“This highly coveted certification provides our customers with the assurance that we are manufacturing our products according to the highest international level,” said Thomas Bach, area manager, Corrugated Packaging Austria Germany. “It documents both the strong hygienic standards and the seamless quality controls enforced at our plants as well as through our company’s own in-house laboratory.”
Both plants have also received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification – meaning the product group can display the “FSC recycled” and “FSC mixed” labels, said the firm.
The 'FSC recycled' label signifies a product group that consists of 100% second-hand materials, whereas the 'FSC mixed' label is an indication that the products consist of a blend of FSC-certified material, second-hand material and other materials from controlled sources.
