dP&S guarantees quality and safety Dutch Protein & Services® produces top-quality ingredients for the food industry. We aim for optimum food safety and manufacture in accordance with GMP principles. We comply with the HACCP system and work to BRC guidelines. Both systems, HACCP and BRC, include a preventive duty of care with regard to food safety which also applies to our production process. DP&S® has the highest levels of BRC and HACCP certification.

BRC certified DP&S® has been BRC certified for many years and recently extended its certification with grade A status according to the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety, Issue 6. The BRC Food Technical Standard was established to guarantee the quality and safety of food sold by members of the British Retail Consortium (BRC). The BRC represents 90% of the British retail industry. Over time, BRC certification has also been incorporated in the quality policies of retailers outside of the UK.

HACCP certified DP&S® is also certified in accordance with HACCP (version 5). HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points. Our team is constantly focused on all such critical control points and other relevant factors before, during and after production. Our aim is to improve our processes wherever and whenever necessary.

Halal Food products also have a moral dimension and the circumstances under which they are produced play an important role for many people. DP&S® aims to respect particular wishes relating to cultural, religious or geographic circumstances. DP&S® can therefore supply its products in Halal versions if required. The necessary tracking & tracing, monitoring and certification have been placed in the reliable hands of the Foundation Halal Correct Certification. The FHCC quality system guarantees food quality in accordance with universal and Islamic values.

Gluten-free An ever-growing number of our products are gluten-free. DP&S® guarantees the gluten-free status of its ingredients by means of external, independent analyses of the presence of gluten. We are able to produce gluten-free products in accordance with EU regulations (< 20 ppm).

External quality and safety audits DP&S® manufactures its products in accordance with the highest possible hygiene and quality standards. We regularly undergo external audits to ensure that we follow correct procedures for hygienic processes, storage and cleaning. The auditors also assess the condition of our buildings, our production resources, the traceability of raw materials and our finished products. We invest constantly in our plant to maintain our leading position in terms of guaranteed hygiene and quality standards for the production of food ingredients.
