SPAIN, KIWA GROUP’s international benchmark centre in the agri-food sector

Kiwa Spain belongs to an international certification group present in more than 50 countries. The largest market for Spain is focused on the fruit and vegetable sector where it has obtained a solid reputation that has now been recognised by having been named the international reference centre of the entire group for production standards and the protocols that manage cultivation activities.

Kiwa is committed to developing business sectors in its international organisation to guarantee the highest quality in processes and to give customers the best guarantees. That is why Spain is responsible for overseeing all international agri-food projects at Kiwa and offering qualifications in this area to all inspectors in the group.

“Following this decision we have strengthened our team in Spain with new partners with solid experience in this sector, improving knowledge of other languages and developing a new application, as all our data and work processes are online. This allows us to monitor all projects and supervise our inspectors worldwide,” says Ad Besemer, Vice President of the Kiwa Group.

Kiwa’s trust has been viewed in our country as a source of pride. “The development of the expert centre is a great responsibility, which we have accepted with great pleasure. We are not afraid of this important challenge,” says Juan Cardona, CEO of Kiwa Spain.

For 2019 it is expected that at the headquarters in Valencia more than 5,800 producers will be studied and evaluated, following more than 7,000 days of auditing.

Kiwa Spain will be present at the next edition of Fruit Attraction at stand 9F01B, located in Hall 9 at IFEMA.
