The QS certification mark (Qualität und Sicherheit or quality and assurance) signifies proven quality assurance of fresh food from farm to retail counter. It is a chain system for farmers, traders and retailers.
Groceries carrying the QS certification mark have a well-documented and verifiable lifecycle. What journey tomatoes make from producer through wholesaler to the grocery store or steak makes from farmer through slaughterhouse and butcher to supermarket, everything is transparent.
QS has strict requirements, for instance for traceability and hygiene. Independent auditors regularly check compliance with the requirements.
Companies that supply German retailers may have to meet the QS requirements. Q-Point has a number of very competent consultants who can help you implement QS. We are glad to assist you on the road to QS certification.
