Now Max. Aarts itself is also FSC®-certified. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®) is an international organisation that promotes responsible forest management.

BRC AA High Hygiene

Packaging material for foods was included in the standardisation for the food industry based on the realisation that packaging and food are an integral part of one production chain. Possible bacteria or hazardous substances on or in the packaging may contaminate foods. Hence packaging material must meet the same requirements as the products that are packed in the material. The annual audit by DNV GL includes the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard for packaging and packaging materials and hygiene standards. We are very critical in our self-assessments and are constantly seeking to improve all our quality standards. That our focus on quality is successful is demonstrated by the fact that we received the best rating (Degree AA) in the BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials in the packaging category: High Hygiene in the field of Flexible Films and Print Processes.
