Trefor vand ensures its quality with ISO 22000:2018

| march 4, 2020

It was a great pleasure to hand over our first DANAK accredited certificate according to the ISO 22000:2018 standard on 4 March 2020 to TREFOR Vand. The company which supplies fresh and tasty drinking water to approx. 50,000  households every day can thus document that they comply with the demands in the latest version of the international food standard.

With the ISO 22000:2018 standard, TREFOR Vand wishes to ensure that future generations also get high-quality clean water. Therefore, the company works intensively with quality management, and they are also certified according to the international quality standard, ISO 9001:2015.

”The focus of food companies on water supplies increase and our certifications support this. They create structure and focus on the way the company is run,” tells Anders G. Juul, QA-team leader in TREFOR Vand about the background of the company’s certifications.

It is not the first time TREFOR Vand can celebrate a certificate presentation. Their certification travel started already in 2011 when TREFOR Vand was certified for the first time according to the previous version of the food standard, ISO 22000:2005.

”Bureau Veritas has been our certification agency since 2011, and they know us well and we get good inputs in connection with ongoing improvements in our management systems – also at a more detailed level” says Anders G. Juul.

In this way management within food safety and quality has become an integrated part of TREFOR Vand ensuring that the company’s employees continuously participate in relevant training as for instance Internal Auditor and Lead Auditor. At the same time, several of the company’s employees, who are responsible for quality, are a part of Bureau Veritas’ network regarding food safety. In this network, they are able to stay updated and exchange experiences with other companies.

”TREFOR Vand needs knowledge sharing in connection with food safety across businesses and in relation to our customers. Among others, Bureau Veritas’ network is a nice source for knowledge sharing” concludes Anders G. Juul.

Once more we congratulate TREFOR Vand with their ISO 22000:2018 certification, and we look forward to our continued cooperation.
