The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is globally recognized for its high-quality standards, which cover a wide range of industries and processes that aim to raise the bar for corporate performance and continuous improvement. The ISO 9001:2015 standard is the latest for quality management systems. For a company to achieve this certification, it must show a commitment to excellence in the areas of process organization, quality control, quality assurance, resource management, customer satisfaction, continuous improvement and much more.
Deerland has become one of the first companies to be certified in the 2015 version of the ISO 9001 standard. This updated version builds upon the previous ISO versions to further raise the bar of global quality management system standards. "This is another example of our team's commitment to continuous improvement," said Hope Hanley, vice president of quality and regulatory affairs at Deerland Enzymes & Probiotics. "This achievement represents a milestone in the evolution of our company."
Deerland's commitment to quality manufacturing is a pillar of its strong reputation. As such, successfully completing the ISO 9001:2015 audit and earning the elite ISO certification was a natural next step. "The ISO certification reinforces our reputation for quality," said Scott Ravech, CEO of Deerland Enzymes & Probiotics. "As a manufacturer of supplement products, adhering to cGMP standards is a critical priority, and we consider third party quality certification essential, as reflected by our long-time certification by NSF. The ISO certification goes beyond our manufacturing practices, by validating our business practices as they relate to employee and customer satisfaction."
