Why is certification important?
Each year, accredited certification agencies such as TÜV Rheinland evaluate the safety and quality of La Comba’s activities. With the certification in accordance with IFS Broker we confirm to you the high level of quality our growers, service providers and own company provide. In accordance with the relevant audit standards, your importers pay attention to the excellence of the goods marketed and food consumers‹ health alike.
Which role do the farmers play?
La Comba meets the requirements set out in the IFS Food »at Higher Level«, the certificate states. Because of this, you can be sure that our growers in Spain have knowledge of, understand and implement your specifications.
IFS Broker attests that we connect farmers and retailers and organise your supply of food and vegetables efficiently.
What does quality management mean?
The certification implies that a quality management system, unlike an isolated audit, accompanies company work flows over the long term. Because the process is continuous, we monitor and improve our services over and over again, focusing on the following aspects:
- details of the quality management system and other aspects of commercial quality assurance
- purchases, including supplier assessment, product analyses, and product packaging
- resource management
- risk analysis in accordance with the HACCP concept and risk management
- service provision, including food defence (to ward off potential contamination), measurements, product specifications, traceability, and contract reviews
