Quality Assurance

 

As the food industry is an extremely sensitive domain, where standards of safety and trust are of vital importance, quality control has to be assured daily by efficient policies, strategies and actions in each of Sovena's industrial units and laboratories.

Sovena's commitment is to always guarantee the best product. Therefore, the quality control process starts right by carefully selecting its suppliers, whose quality standards place them above average.

It's an ongoing and strict process from the reception of the raw material to extraction, refinement and packaging. The most diverse analytical and organoleptic tests are made to ensure the safety and quality of the product and to convey the specificities of each brand.

This posture and sense of responsibility have ensured the ISO 9002 certification, and its annual renovation, as well as the approval of numerous audits regularly made by some of the largest retailers in the world, who, before placing an order, submitted us to extensive analysis of our factories, processes, products and policies.
