Quality and standards

Environment, Quality and Hygiene

Polarbröd bakes and sells bread of the highest quality. The company’s brand is a guarantee of genuinely good and safe food products.

Polarbröd has its own quality system, the unique Polarbröd Quality System, which includes rigorous and systematic checks throughout the baking process.

Our production meets the highest international standards of quality and safety.

Polarbröd’s two bakeries are BRC (British Retail Consortium) certified, a standard for improved product safety and hygiene. BRC places high demands on the company’s quality systems, on process and production management as well as production facilities and employees. Every stage of the operation must be carefully documented. Since 2016, Polarbröd is also IFS Food certified.

Polarbröd has systematically measured its environmental impact since 2000, and became ISO 14001 certified in 2009 – proof that we manage our environmental responsibilities.

The bakery in Bredbyn is Euro Leaf certified, which means that at least 95% of the agricultural ingredients are organic and that relevant EU legislation is adhered to. The bakery in Bredbyn is also certified by KRAV, which regulates sustainable agriculture in Sweden, and has even stricter requirements.

Polarbröd takes full responsibility for the bread to be transported safely in an unbroken freezer chain all the way to the customer.
