Quality

To protect consumers for any potential risks, quality at Promessa is monitored by the NVWA on behalf of the Dutch government.

To guarantee food safety, Promessa has identified company-specific risks for food and product safety and has developed its own process management system. This is audited annually according to the strict IFS (International Food Standard) requirements.

The production process includes control of traceability and guaranteeing a safe and high-quality product. The implementation and enforcement of this process requires specific knowledge of meat, food safety and process control, all of which Promessa has in-house.
