DP&S obtains Plant-Based Global Standard

  • 27 October 2020

Dutch Protein & Services (DP&S) is the first company in the world that meets the rigorous conditions of the new standard for plant-based products.

This gives customers the assurance that all the ingredients for vegan and vegetarian products are guaranteed free of animal by-products. An essential distinction in this growing market.

Is it really, fully plant-based what I drink or eat nowadays? This is what vegetarians and vegans wonder daily, because the origin of the ingredients is not always immediately clear. Legislation for this product group is lacking so far. That is why DP&S directly registered for certification when BRCGS recently introduced the Plant-Based Global Standard. It is important to the company that consumers are clearly and honestly informed. And that they get what the packaging promises.

Guaranteed free of animal by-products

Producers which meet the requirements of the new Plant-Based Global Standard, are allowed to show the “informed plant-based” logo on their packaging. This guarantees the consumers that this product has no ingredients of animal origin and has not been in contact with any animal products. The underlying quality management system and certification process are developed by BRCGS, founded on scientific, worldwide acknowledged protocols. BRCGS is market leader in the area of food safety and the protection of consumers and brands. The equally reputable Lloyd’s Register signed for the audit with DP&S.

The new Plant-Based Global Standard, developed by BRCGS. Gives the following guarantees:

  • Does not contain any ingredients of animal origin
  • Every production batch is 100 % traceable in terms of origin and composition
  • All procedures and processes meet the strict standards of BRCGS
  • Cross-contamination is avoided, from purchasing to packaging
