Chris Hogeslag Foodgroup is IFS certified. The International Featured Standards certificate (IFS) applies internationally to companies that are involved in food and food processing. The certificate shows that products from Chris Hogeslag Foodgroup B.V. meet the requirements for food safety.
The internal business process is fully described by so-called critical points. This means the cold chain remains uninterrupted, cutting work takes place according to the rules and there is great emphasis on hygienic work. The IFS certificate is valid internationally and will in any case be monitored once a year.
All practices in the entire business process are recorded and this means it is always possible to check whether the rules have been complied with throughout the chain. Chris Hogeslag Foodgroup B.V. supervises compliance with these regulations in order to guarantee food safety.
The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) also carries out regular inspections. This agency of the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality has the core task of supervising compliance with applicable laws and regulations at companies and institutions. Inspectors and supervisors of the NVWA monitor compliance with the rules and impose sanctions if necessary.
