Quality control is of vital importance to Dutch Plantin. That's why we keep a close eye on quality throughout the production process. For example, we store all our raw materials in air-conditioned bunkers as soon as they are extracted. This way, we can know for sure that nothing has happened to them and that they conform completely to our standards. The concrete drying floors in the bunkers are always clean. We achieve certainty by carrying out continuous weed tests and taking weekly samples at each stage of the production process. Additionally, we take a sample from every container that leaves our terminals.
Samples are subjected to a detailed analysis and inspected by an independent institute: ECAS. ECAS sees to it that our products meet the requirements of the RHP without fail. We apply the same quality standards in all of our production plants, whether they relate to raw material, packaging or hygiene. Each production site has its own laboratory with air-conditioned rooms to ensure that the tests are always carried out in the same conditions, producing results that are representative and reliable. One of our Dutch staff is responsible for the complete quality monitoring system.
