Plukon complies with a number of national quality standards such as IKB Kip (the Netherlands), Belplume (Belgium) and QS (Germany). The rules of these standards apply to the entire production chain, from breeding farm to slaughterhouse to cutting plant. The food safety standard for all of Plukon’s production locations are certified according to the food safety schemes approved by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). GFSI is an initiative of the international retail for global harmonization of the assurance of food safety. The quality systems of Plukon are built according to the HACCP approach. HACCP systems systematically search for the critical points that influence the safety of the end product (chicken products and meals). Based on this risk identification, health risks for the consumer can be reduced.
