The quality system is based on sharing of best practice and when possible, applying the same policies across the group. When common procedures are not sufficient, local procedures are used to ensure food safety and compliance with regulations.
Local management is responsible for implementing the quality system. The central quality organization is responsible for internal audits to assess performance. Internal audits help to ensure compliance and sharing of best practice across the group.
External certification agencies are auditing the quality system and its application against well know quality standards in the industry.
