Accreditation is part of CMR’s continuous efforts to guarantee the supply of safe and quality products

Spain’s CMR Group has announced that its Madrid-based subsidiary, CMR Infinita, has been awarded IFS Food accreditation for its bananas and melons.

The company said the granting of this certification is part of its ongoing search for both excellence in management and the guarantee of supplying safe and quality products to the market.

The certification is a food safety standard recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) focused on the food safety and quality of processed products, ensuring comparability and transparency throughout the supply chain.

In order to obtain accreditation, the company must successfully pass the requirements in relation to quality and food safety management systems, resource management, planning and production process, measurement, analysis and improvement, as well as food defence.

“In the pursuit of excellence in quality, safety and customer satisfaction, the CMR Infinita quality system is subject to continuous improvement processes, having passed a total of 13 audits promoted by certification bodies, customers and health authorities in 2021 thus guaranteeing the monitoring of compliance with food regulations,” CMR said.

The certificate is CMR Infinita’s latest accreditation, which also include Ecological, IGP Plátano de Canarias and Fair trade and those of CMR GROUP, IFS Logistics, IFS Broker, GlobalGAP and GRASP.
