Product quality and food safety

Product quality and food safety

Our high quality level is the standard which drives all the activities of the Group, a principle inspired by its tradition of excellence, the result of a professionalism and technical know-how deeply rooted in the past, generating a competitive edge that helps secure customer loyalty and develop the perception of its brands.

The goal of Colussi is to ensure that all its products can be consumed with absolute peace of mind, as they are compliant with all the laws in force and meet the highest quality standards. In this regard, carefully selecting our raw materials is essential, as is constantly monitoring their quality over time. This is why we carry out many checks through the entire production chain to ensure the absolute safety of every product.

Quality means the constant commitment of all the people who work for the Group, combined with the ability to innovate every day to achieve better results and ensure we keep the promise of goodness and wholesomeness embodied by each product.

RESPONSIBLE CHOICES

The Colussi Group has chosen to use raw materials that are increasingly kind to the environment and our health: this is why our products are free from palm oil and we only buy eggs from free-range hens.

CERTIFIED QUALITY

The Colussi Group has obtained the UNI ENI ISO 9001 quality system certification for its main production sites and is also BRC and IFS certified.

The innovation activity often involves relationships with external research institutions, nutritionists, doctors and universities in order to improve the nutritional characteristics of the products or to procure more information about human health aspects. The collaboration also concerns projects such as product development and research of new ingredients, ad hoc research and analysis, training. Examples of projects are those carried out in collaboration with the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo, of which the Group has been a Strategic Partner since 2015.
