Our certifications

Quality and safety in black and white

Retailers, wholesalers and consumers want assurances about the quality and safety of the food they purchase. At Nature's Pride, it goes without saying that fruits and vegetables should be of the best quality. That is why we hold all the important certificates that demonstrate that we take this promise seriously. Below you will find an overview of our certifications.

IFS Food certification

Food safety

This means that our production location meets strict requirements for hygiene and food safety in accordance with the latest version of IFS Food. The IFS certificate offers many benefits. This certification allows us to demonstrate our quality and food safety to our customers. In addition, IFS Food is internationally recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). 

IFS Broker certification


IFS Broker is a certification system that guarantees the safety of products within companies if they only buy the products, do not come into contact with the products and deliver them directly to their customers. With this certification, Nature's Pride makes its suitable supplier choices and risk management of the purchased materials demonstrable.

IFS Logistics certification


This standard is focused specifically on logistics service providers for food and non-food products. The certificate covers all logistics activities for handling packaged products, such as transport, packaging, storage and distribution. The certification in accordance with the IFS Logistics standard shows that Nature's Pride has food safety risks under control. In this way, we create trust and guarantee reliability towards our customers, suppliers and governments.

SKAL certification


This certificate demonstrates that we meet the requirements for being allowed to import, package and trade organic products.

BREEAM Excellent certification

Sustainable business premises

BREEAM is an international standard for quantifying the energy performance of business premises. Nature's Pride's current premises were delivered in 2013 with the BREEAM Excellent certificate. A special feature of the certification process was that the assessment criteria for BREEAM were tailor-made. At the time, Nature's Pride was the first client to receive an 'Excellent' certification with this type of bespoke process. We also want to achieve at least BREEAM 'Excellent' with the new building that we hope to complete by the end of 2021.

On the way to PlanetProof

Better choice for nature, climate and animals

“On the way to PlanetProof” is an independent quality mark. It proves (“Proof”) that a product is more sustainable. Farmers, horticulturalists and other businesses can use the quality mark to work towards production that is in balance with the earth’s carrying capacity. That makes it a better choice for nature, climate and animals. And it is a process of continuously taking further steps to reduce the burden on our planet (“On the way to...”).


Chain of Custody Standard (CoC)

Transparency throughout the supply chain guarantees the integrity of your product and reassures your customers. The GLOBALG.A.P. Chain of Custody Standard is an essential certificate for all producers and retailers handling GLOBALG.A.P. certified products. It ensures that any product bearing a GLOBALG.A.P. label or sold as a GLOBALG.A.P. certified product is sourced from GLOBALG.A.P. certified farms.

The GLOBALG.A.P. CoC Standard identifies the status of your product throughout the entire process, from farm to retailer. It lays out strict requirements for handling certified products and the proper segregation of certified and non-certified produce in the processing operation units.

The GLOBALG.A.P. Chain of Custody (CoC) Standard gives you the level of transparency and integrity that provides added value to your product and brand in the market and added reassurance to your customers.
