DKSH Switzerland receives IFS Broker certification for its food and beverage ingredients business

DKSH Switzerland was awarded the “Higher Level” certification in the “Import and trade of ingredients for the food and beverage industry” category by the International Featured Standard (IFS) Broker. The milestone recognition enables DKSH Switzerland to guarantee the highest possible quality and safety in product procurement for its food and beverage portfolio.


The IFS Broker certification is recognized around the world. Its aim is to help companies to guarantee the safety and quality of their products on the basis of a uniform evaluation system and to close the gap between production and sales.


Amid industry globalization, specialized distributors, intermediaries and importers are becoming increasingly important, in part, due to the raw materials they can obtain from multiple sources around the world. The IFS Broker certification enables companies, especially in the food industry, to add value to their service offering and to provide peace-of-mind for the customer base.


Sandro Meier, Local Business Unit Manager, Performance Materials, DKSH Switzerland, commented: “We are delighted to have received the IFS Broker certification. DKSH provides transparency along the entire value chain to provide a trustworthy and reliable service for its business partners. This internationally recognized seal of approval underscores our goal to increase the focus on food safety and will allow us to guarantee the high quality of our food and beverage product portfolio.”
