Quality & Safety

Primary motto: Quality & Safety

Without exception, all raw materials and the resulting products are subject to very strict quality control at CAPOL from start to finish. Computer-supported production programs enable tracing of the product to the raw material and vice versa at any time. All production steps and analysis results are documented and can be requested at any time.

State-of-the-art equipment for chemical and chemical-physical analytics is used in our QA laboratory. Highly qualified employees perform stringent checks of all product batches based on specified parameters and thus ensure top quality of our products throughout. A sophisticated system for a continuous documentation and a comprehensive calibration and maintenance plan for analysis equipment are standard.

Our practiced HACCP system (hazard analysis and critical control points) guarantees that food safety is ensured across all treatment and processing stages, from delivery of the raw materials to dispatch of our products. Audits are regularly performed within the scope of IFS and BRC audits by the independent DQS GmbH, achieving the highest rating.

We continuously work on potential for improvement within the context of our QM system, according to the motto: Those who have ceased to improve have ceased to be good. We include risk analyses, audits, training, reviews and other measures for this purpose.
