Company certifications

  • BRC Global Standards are used by over 30,000 certificated suppliers in over 130 countries. These standards aim to guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria to ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer.

  • ISO 9001 is a globally recognized quality standard. The standard is part of the ISO 9000 series and it supports quality control within an organization. Within an ISO certification, a management system is used that must meet the requirements set in the standard.

  • SA 8000 is an international certification standard that encourages organizations to develop, maintain and implement socially acceptable workplace practices. The certification covers issues such as forced and child labour, occupational health and safety, freedom of association and collective bargaining, discrimination and more.

  • GKB is FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified and offers the possibility to make all cups from FSC® certified paper. FSC®-certified forests are managed to strict environmental, social and economic standards. Because FSC® is auditing the complete supply chain from forest until end products, this ensures the end user that the paper comes from sustainable resources.
