Certificates prove the quality of production at ALLFO

Quality standards have become an essential part of production and a key purchasing criterion for ALLFO’s customers. In recent years, we have therefore striven for certificates and obtained several important ones that attest to our uncompromising focus on quality. We have also adhered to the statutes of the plastics processing industry and are committed to sustainability.

ALLFO can refer to the following certificates:

BRC – The global standard for food packaging

ALLFO verifiably meets the criteria of the category: High hygiene risk. The certificate, in which we have achieved the highest classification, applies to the production of packaging suitable for food while attesting its safety. Background of the certificate: The British Retail Consortium (BRC) defines the standards for suppliers of packaging materials for foodstuffs, which have been bindingly set by several retail chains.

The BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials applies both to the film manufacture of our sister company ALLVAC and the ALLFO bag production. This enables us to refer to a production process that has been fully tested and certified. Approved far beyond the borders of the UK, the BRC standard is highly appreciated in our country as well. These standards are particularly relevant for the food industry and required by numerous manufacturers and retailers.

ISO 50001 – Energy efficiency guided by sustainability

This certificate is dedicated to energy efficiency in the production of films and bags made of PA/PE with the main objective to support companies in improving their energy efficiency by setting up the requisite systems and processes. The aim is to identify unused potentials, cut energy costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts of energy consumption.

The awarded certificate proves that on the course of its sustainability strategy ALLFO has been able to reduce its energy consumption by more than 20 percent. This has not only been achieved by the management through orienting the company accordingly but also by the employees’ commitment to a straightforward, long-term energy management – which has demonstrably led to success.

We adhere to the GKV code of conduct

With this certificate, ALLFO proves that it has committed itself consistently to the code of conduct of the Central Federation of the Plastics Processing Industries (Gesamtverband kunststoffverarbeitende Industrie - GfK). This association, which is decisive for us, thus also commits itself to the necessity of demanding compliance with legal regulations and, particularly, ethical standards from its members by means of codes of conduct. This in turn strengthens our customers’ and suppliers’ confidence in our company as their business partner of choice and is ensured not least by our transparent business processes. The code is tailored to the requirements of plastics processing companies.
