Our Quality

In order to ensure this high quality and to be verifiable, Van der Heiden Kaas has a number of certificates, such as:

BRC Certificate;
IFS Certificate;
Organic Certificate;
Meadow milk Certificate:
Process Certificate 2;
Process Certificate 4.

Compliance with these certificates is regularly reviewed to ensure quality remains.

The BRC standard describes the hygiene and food safety requirements for food processing companies that deliver directly to the retail sector and are strongly demanded by major retailers – especially in the Netherlands.

IFS certification, like the BRC standard, is a combination of HACCP, quality management, GMP, customer focus and various device requirements. Due to the requirements of German, French and Italian retailers, more and more Dutch suppliers are required to comply with this standard.

The Organic certificate guarantees that Van der Heiden Kaas is certified in the storage, wholesale and transport of organic cheese. These activities are monitored by Skal Biocontrole, which does this on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality.

With the Meadow Milk certificate we can guarantee that our dairy products are made from meadow milk. This is milk that comes from cows that are out in the pasture for at least 120 days a year, 6 hours a day.

Process Certificates 2 and 4 are showing the high-quality process for refining and packing semi-hard cheese. In addition, conditioned transport of wheels and packed cheeses.

By constantly working at ​​delivering an optimal product, Van der Heiden Kaas guarantees superior quality.
