IFS Standard

IFS (International Food Standard) is a standard for auditing food safety and process quality of retailer and wholesaler branded food products. The purpose of the IFS is to enable communication between retailers and food manufacturers, since both parties have to ensure safe and quality branded food and non-food products.

The IFS Standards help trademark owners to comply with all legal food and non-food safety and quality requirements and give common and transparent standards to producers, as well as a concrete and strong answer to the high safety and quality expectations of customers.

Organic Harvesting and Processing

In recent years, the demand on organic agricultural produce and food has significantly grown. Consequently, there is a wider variety of organic products offered. People keep asking themselves: “Is the produce and food available on the market really organic?”

Organic agriculture is a modern approach to agriculture, based on natural methods and matter cycles without chemical substances, illegal fertilizers and soil improvement methods. It is not allowed to use genetically modified organisms and synthetic additives in feed, and the produce should not be exposed to ionising radiation.

Medex is certified for production, packaging, storage and distribution of organic food and food supplements.
