Montag, 20. August 2018 Publiziert in Aktuelles

This prestigious certification scheme is only available to companies with a food safety management system that is efficiently implemented and compliant with customer and consumer requirements.

COEXPAN-EMSUR BRASIL has received AENOR certification that guarantees compliance with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), an internationally recognized scheme in one of most demanding food safety standards for the production of food contact plastic packaging.

The FSSC 22000 Scheme offers a complete framework for the certification of food safety management systems, providing models that can be used throughout the whole food supply chain, including the production of packaging material under the ISO/TS 22002-4:2013 technical specification.

This prestigious certification has been awarded to both, COEXPAN and EMSUR divisions based in Brazil, as they operate together from the same facility manufacturing rigid coextruded plastic sheets and flexible films suitable for food contact. Certainly, this marks the achievement of a new milestone thanks to the commitment of our technical department and backed up by the major investment plan under way of our companies.

Furthermore, from EMSUR we keep our BRC Packaging certifications for food safety in place in every plant and continue with our plans to implement at a global level the ISO 9001:2015 for quality management systems, and ISO 14001:2015 for effective environmental management system.

With this certification, EMSUR, the Grupo Lantero Division specialized in flexible packaging, wants to highlight again our total commitment to creating products that meet the highest standards of safety and quality, complying both with legal requirements and our customer specifications as well as caring for the environment.
