De Maro has been awarded the most prestigious certification in the food industry. 

BRC AA+ recognitionbrc a+

De Maro was one of the first confectionaries in the Netherlands to have been awarded the prestigious BRC AA+ accreditation. This is the highest grade that the British Global Standard for Food Safety provides and can only be awarded after an unannounced audit. This is important to us, since quality and food safety have our constant attention, not only during announced audits. Download our BRC AA+ certificate

IFS certificate

IFS certificateAs of October 2015, De Maro received the IFS Higher Level certification version 6. IFS stands for International Foods Standard nowadays also known as International Featured Standard Food. BRC and IFS standards are quite similiar but the criteria and the levels differ. However both standards have the same goal: minimization of significant food risks and a effective control of internal processes. 

This second accreditation proves that our products meet the highest quality standards. Download our IFS certificate.
