March 18, 2015

Hamburg’s leading intermediate bulk container (IBC) and container logistics specialist Liquid CONcept is now accredited for foodstuffs transportation in line with the tough standards demanded by SVG Zert in Frankfurt, Germany.

Independent certification agency SVG Zert certifies that the Hamburg, Germany, company has successfully complied with the audit for ISO 9001 and HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control points). The assessment was carried out on Liquid CONcept’s container fleet, transport procedures, and quality management.

“Demands on us as service providers are continually changing,” said Eycke-Christian Dörre, managing director of Liquid CONcept. “We want to retain maximum flexibility and yet still be able to guarantee our customers smooth-running operations, process reliability, and thus sustainable high quality and satisfaction.”

Compliance with the strict norms of ISO 9001 and HACCP and verification by an independent certification body is of crucial importance to Liquid CONcept. In the business of transporting perishable foods, safety, quality, and transparency are of the essence. Through this positive assessment, Liquid CONcept has not only achieved one of its primary corporate goals, it is on a firm footing for the future and has a new marketing tool.

Liquid CONcept expects that ISO 9001 and HACCP certification will trigger further growth in its food transportation business. The high assessment criteria will boost demand long term and also enhance clients’ perception of the Hamburg logistics company. The certificates prove compliance with the strict international criteria for hygiene, safety, and quality.
