Certifications

Companies operating in the food and chemical industries must comply with strict regulations to prevent contamination. They have to be able to rely on partners that not only understand the dire consequences non-compliance can have on their profitability and reputation but are also willing and able to consistently apply the same high standards to their own operations. Attention to such details is part of Gelpac’s DNA.
