Certifications

AGD industrial group carefully controls each of the processes involved in the manufacture of its products, protecting the environment, abiding to laws and regulations in force, and implementing production methods guided by quality standards established by the International Standards Organization (ISO) and other national and international organizations.

Convinced of the importance of complying with the protection of the environment in its industrial development field and its transformation processes, Aceitera General Deheza holds a certification from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change for the reduction of gas emissions that produce greenhouse effect in the industrial processes of the plants located in General Deheza; quality certification of ISO 9001 (2008 version) and GMP B2 (quality control of Feed Material for animal Feed).

Another goal on international certifications was achieved during 2009 with the obtention of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) Norms Certification for Alejandro Roca and General Deheza Peanut Plants. This goal represents a Company commitment in sustainable and responsible management, involving aspects
like Human Resources, Health and Safety for emploees, Company Integrity and enviromental Policy.

At the beginning of 2010 the standard BRC was certified. This standard specifies the criteria for food safety and quality required to a food company to accomplish the requirements of the most demanding markets of the world.
