Our Quality Standards
At The Family Butchers, we stand for uncompromising food safety and maximum reliability. All our processes in the company are geared towards consistent quality. To this end, we have specialized all our locations so that our modern technical infrastructure ensures that the expertise of our employees contributes to the continuous improvement of our process safety. Our food safety systems also make use of strict hygiene regulations which guarantee safe and enjoyable consumption.
The first step to the best quality starts with the careful selection of ingredients. For both animal products and their alternatives, we have an in-depth understanding of the entire supply chain. We always know where the product we are processing comes from, because our premium raw materials only come from tested and certified suppliers. Regular chemical and microbiological testing from meat to finished sausage ensures the quality you have come to expect from The Family Butchers. With over 40,000 tests performed by in-house and independent laboratories, as well as 2.8 million process inspections per year (as of 2019), we guarantee compliance with the highest product standards.
To meet the high standards we set for ourselves, we have integrated a comprehensive quality management system throughout the company. For many years, we have also met the high requirements of numerous certification standards confirmed by regular and independent audits, such as the IFS Food Standard, the BRC Food Safety Standards as well as QS-Systems.
