Food supply - safe and fresh

Wholesaler in the QS scheme

Wholesalers in the QS scheme ensure that fruit, vegetables and potatoes from the producer arrive in retail outlets safely and in fresh condition. QS provides support here: with practice-oriented requirements that we have compiled in the QS guidelines.

Qualified auditors review the implementation of and compliance with requirements in independent audits. By implementing QS residue monitoring, wholesalers ensure that their products are tested by independent laboratories approved by QS.

The certification against QS can be used as evidence of audited production and marketing processes vis-à-vis customers.


Residue Monitoring

Residue monitoring in the QS scheme monitors fruit, vegetables and potatoes to ensure that applicable maximum residue levels for plant protection products and limit values for pollutants and nitrate are observed. It also checks whether the pesticides used are approved for the product. The aim of monitoring is to ensure that only flawless goods find their way to the consumer. In the event of complaints, possible causes are clarified in order to avoid recurrence by means of suitable measures.
