Quality management

Quality management that meets the highest standards

As part of our quality focus, we have developed and implemented a Quality Management System (QMS) in line with industry standards. Throughout the supply chain, we are actively involved in supporting our suppliers and partners to comply with the current regulations for the personal care industry. Working within the guidelines of EU Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 enables us to meet and exceed the very highest quality standards for the distribution of excipients, as well as active ingredients. This QMS has been certified by an independent body according to ISO 9001:2015 standards and has been supplemented, where necessary, with industry standards including BRC Brokers and Agents, GMP+ and GDP. Where required, we are able to comply with Fairtrade, Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), Sedex and Organic regulations. We are also members of Sedex and Evovadis.
