Fourth part of the QS series published in
As part of our media cooperation with the international magazine Eurofruit, the fourth of a total of five articles on QS requirements for companies in the fruit and vegetable sector has been published. In the current issue, we provide an overview of the QS scheme in food retailing.
The German food retailers increasingly rely on QS for the supply of safe fruits and vegetables all year round. Therefore, a QS scheme participation is a prerequisite for exporting to Germany for many international suppliers and their producers. QS has reached an almost comprehensive market penetration, particularly on the important procurement markets in the Netherlands and Belgium. In Southern Europe - mainly in Spain and Italy - this penetration is also increasing. Nowadays, 36 % of the producers and 34 % of the wholesale companies registered with QS are located abroad.
