Our two production sites at the above-mentioned locations and warehouses are subject to an annual audit in which the quality standard and food safety are assessed. In the course of this audit, which is conducted in accordance with the BRC Packaging standard, all internal quality processes were reviewed, and we are delighted to announce we have had another successful outcome this year.
On another note, we have opted not to extend the trial of the FSSC 22000 quality standard this year, since we have reached the conclusion that this standard has failed to gain the popularity expected for it in the packaging industry. Similarly, a recent change in the FSSC 22000 also makes the standard less compatible with our business operations, and with BRC Packaging and FSSC 22000 largely overlapping, it simply doesn’t make sense to maintain both quality systems.
We see the maintenance of AA status for the GFSI-approved BRC Packaging standard at both our locations as the most significant achievement of a dedicated team. All year round, this team has been working with everybody on the shop floor to standardise the hygiene and monitoring of every bucket that leaves our factory.

Injection moulding explained
With a range of 0.3 to 61 liter packaging, we offer a wide range of packaging in various forms such as round, rectangular and square. In addition to these standard solutions, we also offer tailor-made solutions.
In addition to the fact that traceability in the food industry is mandatory, it is also important in other production chains to follow where raw materials come from. This certainly also applies to our packaging containers.
Sustainable Alfix packaging
Since the year 2000, Alfix, producer of tile adhesives and more, has been proactively minimizing its impact on the environment for both production and their products. But the packaging in which the products are packed must also be sustainable, according to the company in Kolding.
The British Retail Consortium (BRC)introduced this certification programme in 1998. The programme focuses on food safety and quality within an organisation. A company is tested on more than 300 aspects to check to what extent it meets the standard that is set. A rating indicates to what degree a company complies with the GSFI-recognised standard of the BRC.
Aspects such as traceability, cleanliness, operational control, training and management of suppliers are included, which together form the basis of the BRC. Thanks to the name that the BRC has built up, it has been a reputable name in the world of certification programmes for years and we are proud to be able to show our results within this programme.
The FSSC 22000 Standard has been created through Stichting Certificatie Voedselveiligheid (SCV). As a food-oriented version of the ISO 22000 Standard, this certification programme has been set up as a global guideline in food safety and quality within various industries. This standard is aimed at the entire production chain and as such, it is ideally suited for international harmonisation, partly thanks to the recognition by the GFSI. In addition to its connection with ISO 22000, the FSSC 22000 has many comparisons with the HACCP criteria, making it an attractive variant with the best of both worlds from these programmes. Thanks to the internationally accepted nature of the FSSC and the chain-wide approach within this certification programme, we recognise a strong food safety management system in this standard.
