New BIO certificate for OPW

15. February 2016

Bio Zertifikat OPW Ingredients GmbH has been a holder of the German ‘BIO’ organic certificate for 3 years and is subject to annual inspections by the BCS ÖKO Garantie certifying agency. Many of our customers buy not only our conventional oils, but also our organic speciality oils, which are subject to special controls. This includes our avocado oil BIO, rose hip seed oil BIO, almond oil BIO, olive oil BIO, our organic-grade oil flours and proteins, such as our almond protein BIO, organic hempseed flour, pumpkin seed protein BIO, and organic sesame protein, all of which are used in the food industry. As always, we will keep you updated about our products in our monthly blogs, which always carry the latest news. OPW Ingredients GmbH subjects its BIO-certified products to a special treatment, which is required by the BIO inspection body in order to meet the annual inspections and standards for the BIO certification. On 10/02/2016, the latest inspection by BCS ÖKO Garantie was carried out in our facilities. The inspection focused especially on the documentation of the BIO-certified products. Particular points of investigation included the complete traceablity of the BIO products all the way from the manufacturer to their arrival at OPW Ingredients GmbH, and then from the shipping to the delivery at our customers’ facilities. Only truly organic products are allowed to carry the BIO seal. In the course of the inspection, the validity of our pre-suppliers’ BIO certificates was verified in order to guarantee that the BIO declarations on our oils, proteins, and flours are genuine. Thanks to the introduction of SAP since the establishment of our company, we have achieved complete, credible traceability. All of our documents and labels display the number of the certifying agency (DE-ÖKO-001), and our BIO-certification is clearly visible. At the end of the audit, it was clear that OPW Ingredients GmbH had passed the BCS ÖKO inspection with flying colours once again and that it meets all requirements for its BIO-certified status. Increasing numbers of consumers and, in turn, producers in the food and cosmetics sector attach great importance to the BIO label. The repeated BIO-certification is important for us, as it allows us to expand our business in the BIO sector further, offering our customers a maximum of quality and service. As you can see on our website (Menu button “Quality”), your demands become our basic principles: we guarantee the complete traceability of our products all the way to the source as a fundamental requirement.
