THE NETHERLANDS - Following an audit by DNV certification B.V. in September, leading Dutch broiler breeding company Hybro BV has been recertified for ISO 9001:2000, as well as achieving HACCP accreditation for the first time.


Hybro's quality manager Frouke Voolstra, was responsible for steering Hybro towards its quality goals. "The requirements set by HACCP and ISO are not a goal in themsleves," she says, "but a validation of the standards that as a supplier to the food industry, we believe are absolutely fundamental to our commitment to our customers."

DNV's auditors were impressed by Hybro's quality system and its implementation, and went further, to report that above all they found the company's drive and dedication had produced a hard-working and highly focused approach, which is greatly enhanced by short, effective lines of communication throughout the business.

Hybro's general manager Richard Maatman thanked Frouke Voolstra for her hard work. "Hybro has once again demonstrated its spirit and cohesion as a highly focused company.

"With official ISO- and HACCP certification," He concludes, "we move ever-closer to our aim of becoming a preferred partner for the poultry meat industry, with a proactive, quality-driven commitment to the future."
