We use FSC- or PEFC-certified paper to manufacture our Blechrein papers. FSC® and PEFC are transparent and independent systems for ensuring sustainable forest management. FSC stands for „Forest Stewardship Council®“; and describes an international organisation encouraging an environmentally compatible, socially viable and economic management of forests worldwide. PEFC stands for „Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes“
The entire product manufacturing, from raw material to final product, is certified as well as being monitored by independent assessors. In addition to the sustainability aspect, we guarantee that all our products are suitable for use with food. This is because the area, where Blechrein cooking and baking papers are produced, were awarded with the „BRC Packaging Certificate“. This is a food hygiene certification recognized wordwide bei the „Global Food Safety Initiative“.
Furthermore, the company is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and DIN EN ISO 14001:2015, certifying the usage of a quality- and environmental management system. Those certifications address the production and distribution of, among others, food-grade papers and enable to provide guidance during customer-specific application problems.
