QUALITY CERTIFICATES

Our concern to improve and innovate: Getting ahead of the needs and desires of consumers has made us a benchmark for quality and innovation in our chocolate decoration sector. This is why our products are certified by the IFS Food and Rain Forest Alliance, thus ensuring responsible raw materials with society and the environment.

IFS Food is a food safety standard recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) to audit companies that manufacture food or companies that package food products in bulk. It focuses on the food safety and quality of processed products.

The Rainforest Alliance seal promotes collective action for people and nature. It amplifies and reinforces the beneficial impacts of responsible choices, from farms and forests to the supermarket checkout. The seal allows you to recognize and choose products that contribute to a better future for people and the planet.
