Certifications & guidelines

Tested quality

We constantly put our corporate processes to the test. In doing so, we do not only measure by our own standards. A wide range of international certifications reflects the ongoing work within the framework of our comprehensive quality management system.


The “Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points” (HACCP) method records and describes all measures for systematic and risk-conscious quality control in every processing stage. At IREKS, the HACCP concept for the manufacture of our products came into force in 1996.

FSSC 22000

FSSC stands for “Food Safety System Certification” and is based on the international standard ISO 22000. For many years now, our food safety management system for the production of baking ingredients and malts at our headquarters in Kulmbach has been certified in accordance with recognised and current food safety standards of the Global Food Safety Initiative.


ISO 9001

Our quality management system has been certified according to ISO 9001 since 1995. This includes the development, manufacture and distribution of baking ingredients and malts for brewing.

The visible sign of our organic quality is the certification by an independent Organic Control Body (DE-ÖKO-001). Our organic products are produced in accordance with the strict requirements of Regulation (EU) 2018/848. IREKS has been offering a specific range of malt products in organic quality for many years.
