Systems and standards

We aim to run our business in a manner that is ethical, responsible and sustainable, adopting leading management systems and standards to help us continually improve our performance.

Management systems

In Armenia we implement internationally recognised management systems with regards to quality, food safety, environment, and health and safety. These include

  • Quality management (ISO 9001)
  • Food Safety (FSSC 22000)
  • Environment Management (ISO 14001) 
  • Occupational Health and Safety (OHSAS 18001)

We are fully certified against all of these and we report our progress in our Sustainability report.
