Good manufacturing practices (GMP) are the practices required in order to conform to the guidelines recommended by agencies that control the authorization and licensing of the manufacture and sale of food and beverages, cosmetic, pharmaceutical products, dietary supplements and medical devices. These guidelines provide minimum requirements that a manufacturer must meet to assure that their products are consistently high in quality, from batch to batch, for their intended use.

IFS Food

The IFS Food Standard is a GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) recognized standard for auditing food manufacturers. The focus is on food safety and the quality of processes and products. It concerns food processing companies and companies that pack loose food products. IFS Food applies when products are “processed” or when there is a hazard for product contamination during primary packing. The Standard is important for all food manufacturers, especially for those producing private labels, as it contains many requirements related to the compliance with customer specifications.


An organic seal is a quality and test seal, with which products from organic agriculture are marked. Permission to use a seal is regulated by the issuer and is subject to compliance with certain standards and requirements. Compliance with the criteria by the producers is to be ensured by means of compulsory documentation and the regular taking and testing of samples. In the EU, compliance with the regulations for all organic products is monitored by the responsible organic inspection body and, if an organisation’s seal is used, additionally – or exclusively – by the respective cultivation organisation.

ISO 22000

ISO 22000 is a standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization dealing with food safety. It is a general derivative of ISO 9000.
