INTERNATIONAL FEATURED STANDARDS
HODK wants to provide products with a focus on high food quality. It is important for us that our customers can trust that our product quality is high. Therefore, we have chosen to follow and be certified under the IFS Food and IFS Cash & Carry Wholesales standard. This means that we meet a wide range of specific requirements and carry out a systematic control of all our processes to achieve optimal food quality. Once annually we are being reviewed by an independent certifying agency which examines all our written as well as practical procedures.
Although HODK has obtained IFS Higher Level, we will continue to improve further, and work daily to improve self-monitoring of our procedures including risk assessment.
The demands from the IFS Certification are much higher than the demands from the authorities. Every year the demands to be IFS-certified increases which ensures that we always improve for the benefit of our customers.
IFS standard approved by the Global Food Safety Initiative;
GFSI and thus equated by GFSI with other known certification standards such as BRC, FSSC 22000, and similarly based on Codex Alimentarius.
