As a food producer, it is a matter of course for Rynkeby Foods to ensure quality and food safety. Historically, we started out with ISO 9001 quality certification, which was expanded to ISO 22000 and subsequently updated to FSSC 22000 with a focus on food safety. Today we have an IFS certification. Common to the standards is that they are continuously developed and now also focuses on Food Fraud and Food Defense.
Rynkeby sets stringent requirements for the raw materials, both in terms of quality and food safety, and we also impose ethical requirements on our subcontractors. Raw materials must be produced without illegal use of labor including child labor and comply with international rules for the environment and working conditions.
The raw materials arrive at Rynkeby mainly in tankers or in barrels. We also receive fresh fruit and vegetables for pressing at our plant. Before the goods arrive at the warehouse, the raw materials undergo a thorough inspection, where it is examined whether all the requirements that Rynkeby makes for its raw materials in terms of color, taste, acid, dry matter content etc. are observed. No raw materials are put into production before the inspection is completed and approved.
Our finished juices and cordials also undergo a thorough check, and a sensory control by an authorized team of "tasters", as well as a control of chemical and microbiological parameters.
The quality department at Rynkeby Foods consists of 4 quality employees and 4 laboratory technicians. We have a large and modern laboratory with all the necessary facilities that are used by both the quality department and the product development department.
In 2006 we were among the first companies to receive a food safety certificate (ISO 22000). In 2019 this was updated to an IFS certification. Rynkeby Foods A/S is also approved for organic production.
In 2021 Rynkeby Foods A/S received an ISO 14001 certificate and EMAS registration as a result of establishing an environmental management system and preparing an environmental statement according to Regulations (EC) No. 1221/2009. The goal is to promote the continious improvement of our environmental performance and to inform the public hereof. The environmental management system and the environmental statement are verified by a third party company.
