At BEC, we are committed to superior quality

We take our responsibility to ensure that product quality, safety and hygiene are at a constant high level. To deliver this our manufacturing processes, warehousing processes and supply chain control are operated under an Integrated Quality Management System. This enables us to meet and exceed customers’ standards, consistently.

With this system we are able to ensure:

Safety

Manufacturing and processing is conducted in a dedicated medication free plant. This reduces the risk of cross contamination.

Quality

All of our products are produced to meet required specifications.

Traceability

All ingredients are tracked to ensure that product characteristics are controlled and verified.

Consistency

Through tracking all ingredients at every stage of the production and handling process we are able to offer consistency of all of our products.
