We are committed to ensure Grano Milano coffee capsules are created, manufactured, and distributed in full compliance with the market and niche regulations and standards. Reasoning from this fact, we acknowledge that Grano Milano blends have earned certification from the Authorities as follows:
1. Compliance with IFS Food
SGS’s international food safety audits ensure compliance of Grano Milano coffee capsules with IFS Food―the International Featured Standard regulations applying to food processors and packers. International Featured Standard (IFS) Food is a GFSI-recognized standard for certifying the safety and quality of food products and production processes.
2. Compliance with BRCS
The BRC Global Standard for Food Safety began in the UK to help the food industry meet the legislative requirements of the EU General Product Safety Directive and the UK Food Safety Act. Since that time, the Standard has received global recognition with over 20,000 certified sites worldwide. The Standard is a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) recognised certification program.
The BRC Global Standard for Food Safety is a product and process certification standard known for compliance with the industry’s best practices. BRC certification is an internationally recognized mark of food safety and quality. Certification is achieved by undertaking a third-party audit against Standard requirements by an accredited certification body (CB). BRC rates CBs on their technical performance and efficiency in customer service. Both FoodChain ID Certification in the UK and America are highly-rated CBs providing accredited BRC certification globally.
3. Fairtrade Certification
Fairtrade certification is a product certification system where social, economic, and environmental aspects of production are certified against Fairtrade Standards for Producers and Traders. The Fairtrade system monitors the buying and the selling of the product until it is consumer packaged and labelled.
