Our Quality Benchmarks
Aronia ORIGINAL represent the natural foods that can offer us the best of nature. Of course, our products are signed with the EU-wide unified organic label. For the organic certification, it is necessary to have our documents and products examined by a competent organic control body at least once a year. You can track this fact on the labels through the mentioned number of the organic control body.
Our own department takes care of the quality assurance of all Aronia ORIGINAL products and has them vetted thoroughly. It is our responsibility to offer you a perfect and honest product, which goes beyond the legal regulations.
Quality is called: Aronia ORIGINAL
In addition to legally prescribed inspections made by food safety bodies and organic control bodies, the Aronia ORIGINAL products are also tested through detailed and independent analyses at more established laboratories, where every charge of the products is tested, among other things, for residues of plant protection products, heavy metals or patulin (mycotoxin), as well as for traces of allergens (e. g. lactose and gluten). Furthermore, we have the exact nutrients, radioactivity and – as to the product – even the microbiological character continuously researched.
Solely perfect products are delivered for sale! Because it is a 100% natural product, the fluctuations in taste and character are usual, as factors such as sun shine or rain cannot be influenced. We want our products to be as original as possible. For this reason, the taste, for example, can be affected depending on the field or plantations and their character. As in the case of good wine, the gourmet can immediately recognize and taste the sensorial differences. Wir wollen unsere Produkte so ursprünglich wie möglich halten. Daher kann es je nach Feld oder Plantage und dessen Umweltbeschaffeneheit zu Auswirkungen auf beispielsweise den Geschmack kommen. Wie bei einem guten Wein können Feinschmecker sensorische Unterschiede sofort erkennen und schmecken.
Maria Frenkel – Chief of Research & Development
We critically monitor the following during the entire production process:
- The selection of raw materials according to our own special preconditions, which we have additionally defined through the product specification.
- Our products’ compliance with law, regulations and directives.
- Further additional quality regulations, which go beyond the standard demands: the neuform-label for products from Health Food Stores e. G. and vegan-quality according to Vegan Society – signed with the neuform-quality label and the vegan-flower on the Aronia ORIGINAL products.
- Sampling, whereby the quality of the samples is checked by independent accredited laboratories.
- Assessment of the analysis results and conclusions.
We place great value on the environment-friendly packaging, which is not only sustainable but also protects our products very well. For this reason, we had a special brown glass bottle developed for our direct juices in 0.7 l bottles. The brown glass bottles protect the special contents against UV radiation.
Our juice packs are made of certified FSC cardboard. Even in the case of adhesives, we pay great attention to the especially sustainable and natural vegan glue for bonding our cartons.
Recently, we have started using a special cap for our 100% direct juices. The screw cap is provided with grooves. If the content – contrary to expectations – should begin to ferment, the pressure is released through a membrane in the cap. The danger of popped bottles is lowered and you can immediately recognize in the cap if something is not all right.
