The demand of consumers on manufacturers, processing plants and trade is constantly growing and thus there is an ever-increasing need for quality control in agriculture. Through the introduction of its own quality label/certification mark and the resulting distinction between food retailers, the production of sustainably produced and local quality products is encouraged. At the same time, adherence to regulations concerning food safety will be stringently controlled by legislature.
In order to take this need into account TÜV AUSTRIA has created a separate department for agricultural control, whose goal is to offer a comprehensive range of services in agricultural production and quality assurance. This includes national and European promotional controls, sustainability and environmental controls as well as monitoring of the environment, hygiene, conservation and protection of plants.
