Quality & Certificates
The consistently high quality of all Bergader speciality cheeses has always been a major part of our company philosophy. We manufacture our products according to highest international quality standards and subject these products to stringent monitoring.
Strict Quality Management
As the first cheese dairy in Germany we have been certified for more than 25 years according to the standardised quality management system DIN EN ISO 9001. This guarantees that all our employees are focused on quality on a daily basis.
Our two production sites in Waging and Bad Aibling are audited and certified annually according to the latest standards such as the International Featured Standard (IFS) and the EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS). These demonstrate our commitment to high retailer and consumer requirements.
Awards, Certificates and Quality Seals
These high standards are audited externally by an independent certification company in line with the rigorous stipulations of the International Food Standard (IFS). When the IFS started in 2003 we were certified straight away for the first time. Our trade customers require us to have this certificate for us to supply them, and at the same time it documents the high safety level of our cheese specialities.
Our environmental management system was first validated under the guidelines of the EC Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) in 1998. Since then we have been documenting our environmental impact and measures for improvement in the environmental statement we draw up every year. With the re-validation under EMAs in 2013 our environmental statement was integrated for the first time in a Sustainability Report.
