Quality Management System
With our extensive quality management system (QMS), we want to ensure the highest customer satisfaction at all times.
To achieve this goal, the processes and manufacturing procedures within the BARTH-HAAS GROUP are constantly reviewed in order to continuously improve the quality of our products and services. The QMS meets all the requirements of ISO 9001, the most widely used and important standard in quality management both nationally and internationally. Compliance with the conditions defined in this standard is ensured in the long term by means of regular re-certification audits by SGS Australia.
HACCP programmes have been developed and introduced at all company locations of the BARTH-HAAS GROUP. HACCP is an internationally recognised management system focused on the prevention of food-related safety problems. As an integral part of our ISO 9001 QMS, the HACCP programmes are also subject to regular audits and certification.
During the development of our HACCP programmes, all aspects of production were examined, from raw material procurement to storage and distribution of the end product. Tests were carried out to establish whether a hop product is liable to a naturally occurring or process-induced safety hazard. Safety hazards can be, for example, the biological (principally microbiological), chemical and/or physical properties of a product that have the potential to injure or cause illness in the end user.
HACCP is used to identify existing or potential hazards and with its help a system is put in place to reduce the threat of risk in the end product. The development and implementation of HACCP programs is just another aspect of the BARTH-HAAS GROUP’s continuing commitment to supplying our customers with safe, high-quality hop products.
