Certifications

Our steadfast commitment to food safety and the exhaustive control of all our organizational operations have allowed us to obtain distinct certifications that guarantee the quality of our products and all of the processes we develop.

For this reason, our quality department performs rigorous controls in both merchandise receiving and customer shipping, always offering cooperative service for the awareness and specifications of the product. Similarly, we periodically check the compliance of operational standards within the organization.
