When it comes to the international trade in fresh produce, food retailers need partners they can count on – partners that ensure that agreed-upon standards are met and that only great-tasting fruit reaches the market. All operations at COBANA are therefore underpinned by a stringent and centralised quality management system.
This includes carefully selecting fruit growers based on criteria such as level of experience, delivery reliability and produce quality; keeping a close eye on intermediate stages such as produce storage and logistics operations; and – in active collaboration with other departments – guaranteeing that all imported fruit reaches its final destination in flawless condition and premium quality. Along with preventive measures, continuous checks form a close-meshed network of controls that has shown outstanding results for many years and that is continuously developed further.
These quality management measures are backed up by a host of certifications. COBANA is currently certified according to the IFS Broker, Global GAP C.o.C, Organic, Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade standards.
