After the audit was successfully completed at the end of March, we have now once again received our IFS Food certificate. The audit was delayed due to Corona-related measures, so it took a little longer than you were used to from us, but the certificate can now be downloaded from our website again.
The International Food Standard, often referred to as IFS or IFS Food for short, is a standard in the field of food safety that was drawn up by the German trade association of food distributors. The standard is also referred to as International Featured Standard – Food (source: Wikipedia). These guidelines set requirements for Jac van den Oord Potatoes’ food safety system and require that all the aspects that occur in it are under control. Part of this standard is, for example, the HACCP plan. Management responsibility, production and process facilities, training and personal hygiene of employees are also tested.
