The subsidiaries of Oerlemans Packaging have grown significantly in recent years. And the actions that we have taken in all possible aspects of social responsibility have contributed to this growth. In a changing world, supplying a product that is merely technically sound is no longer a guarantee for the continuity of the business in either the short or long term.
Oerlemans Packaging wants to supply and produce in accordance with a complete quality system. This is why all of the subsidiaries are BRC-IOP certified. An increasingly important share of our sales is taking place in the food and pharmaceuticals industries. This sector works with the BRC-IOP quality system. This quality system includes procedures, work methods and hygiene regulations in order to be able to produce and supply our products in accordance with our quality and hygiene standards.
Our BRC-IOP quality system is audited by an external agency every year. For our customers this certificate is a guarantee that production takes place in a responsible manner. Production in accordance with high quality standards has the highest priority in our company, which means that a great many tests and checks take place.
