For the production of our own brands, we support our private-label purchasing colleagues in the selection of suppliers and, where necessary, in the qualification required to obtain recognised certificates. We take great care to comply with established standards such as IFS (International Featured Standard), and supplement these with our own exacting quality requirements, which form part of the contracts with our private-label suppliers. Naturally, our own production companies, Wilhelm Brandenburg and Glockenbrot bakery, are subject to the same requirements.
All suppliers undergo regular audits. If we detect non-conformities, we initiate corrective action immediately.
