DKSH France Attains IFS Broker & IFS Logistics Certifications for its Distribution and Logistics Excellence

DKSH France has been recently awarded the “Higher Level” IFS Broker certification for the “Import and trade of ingredients for the food and beverage industry”, certified by the International Featured Standard (IFS).

Miribel, France, June 16, 2022, The milestone recognition enables DKSH France to guarantee the highest possible quality and safety in product procurement for its food and beverage product portfolio.

DKSH France has recently also obtained the “Higher Level” IFS Logistics certification in the category, “Order preparation and delivery of specialty chemicals, ingredients and raw materials for chemical, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, electronic and food”.

The IFS Broker & Logistics certifications are recognized around the world with the aim of helping companies guarantee the safety and quality of their products based on a uniform evaluation system within the whole supply chain. Amid industry globalization, specialized distributors, intermediaries, and importers are becoming increasingly important, in part, due to the raw materials they can obtain from multiple sources around the world. The IFS certifications enable companies, especially in the food industry, to add value to their service offering and to provide peace-of-mind for the customer base.

Hélène Bron, Manager, Food Safety, Europe, DKSH, commented: "IFS certifications recognize the ability of DKSH France to select sources, products and services to ensure food safety, quality and regulatory standards to our customers. As a responsible partner, we maintain this high level of food safety throughout our transparent supply chain.”

Jean-Dominique Foulon, Managing Director DKSH France, added: "We are delighted to receive these internationally recognized quality labels as they will reassure our customers about the transparency and security of our product offering. We have attained the IFS certifications thanks to the commitment and strong collaboration across our teams and partners.”
