We take food safety and quality seriously, and to ensure that we maintain the highest standards, we've attained international certifications from renowned organizations such as ISO 9001, IFS FOOD, and HACCP. The ISO 9001 certification is awarded to organizations that have demonstrated a strong commitment to quality management systems, emphasizing customer satisfaction and continuous improvement. The IFS food certification is recognized globally as a leading standard for food safety management systems. It focuses on ensuring the safety and quality of food products by assessing every aspect of the supply chain, from the sourcing of raw materials to the manufacturing process and the distribution of finished products. The HACCP certification is awarded to organizations that have implemented a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) program, which is a systematic approach to identify, evaluate, and control food safety hazards. These certifications serve as a testament to our dedication to upholding the highest standards of safety, quality, and excellence in everything we do.
Located in Ivanić Grad, our corporate headquarters houses a state-of-the-art facility that offers a range of capabilities, including roasting, mixing, and packaging our products in various formats. To start our production process, we carefully select high-quality ingredients from top vendors around the globe. Upon arrival, truckloads of ingredients are stored in our climate-controlled warehouses and coolers to maintain optimal temperature and humidity levels. We employ various processes to guarantee the quality of our nuts and seeds, resulting in a superior end product:
- BLANCHING enables us to remove the skin from nuts, improving their appearance, flavour, and texture while also reducing the risk of bacterial contamination.
- COATING allows us to coat in sugar different types of nuts such as almond, peanut, hazelnut, cashew and others
- GRINDING allows us to achieve the perfect consistency and a wide range of textures for our snacks.
- MIXING our snack mixes are hand-blended to minimize breakage, but we also use a mixing machine to create unique blends of different types of nuts and ingredients, such as Student mix, Extra mix, Exotic mix, Duo mix, and others.
- DRY ROASTING allows us to roast nuts and seeds to perfection, whether we're working with small or large batches, resulting in the highest quality product.
Finally, our products are packaged, labelled, and sent to our warehouse, where we sell them in bulk and unique packaging options such as pillow bags, quadro bags and standing bags, and resealable doypack bags. We use fast packers (vertical packaging machines), equipped with metal detectors and MAP atmosphere filling options, ensuring maximum freshness and quality. Moreover, we're committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner and have taken the extra step of powering our factory with a solar power plant. By using renewable energy, we're able to reduce our carbon footprint, minimize our environmental impact, and contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable future. At Vedrini, we believe that taking care of the planet is as essential as taking care of our customers, and we're constantly looking for new ways to improve our environmental performance while maintaining the highest standards of quality and taste.
