The reduction strategy of the federal ministry for food and agriculture The salt, sugar and fat content in finished productions should be reduced by 2025. But how to do this without abandoning the flavours we have become used to? This was the challenge facing leading drinks manufacturing which wanted to reduce the sugar content in its soft drink. They came to us for our expertise.

We introduced the arotop quality seal in 2012. Today consumers perceive it as a significant quality characteristic. Products that bear the arotop quality seal fulfil requirements over and above statutory standards. To ensure this we develop with your individual test criteria against which you can regularly measure yourself.

The arotop quality seal stands for:

  • Regular inspections by an independent, accredited testing institute
  • Expert assessments by registered food chemists and officially appointed and attested experts.
  • Declaration testing
  • Sensory tests in the accredited area
  • Microbiological and chemical analyses
  • Inspection of declared ingredients
  • Testing for the absence of contaminants and residues
  • Trail tests
