(DLG). For lasting product quality, hitschler International GmbH & Co. KG of Cologne has now been awarded the "Prize for Long-Term Product Quality" in Cologne, by DLG (German Agricultural Society), for the fourth time. The company's regular quality performance at the International DLG Quality Checks for Confectionery convinced the jury of experts.
For many years, DLG experts have voluntarily tested the food industry products. To promote sustainability and high quality aspirations, DLG awards the "Prize for Long-Term Product Quality".
Companies have to take part in the International Quality Tests conducted by DLG at its Food Test Centre for five consecutive years and shall receive at least three awards per year. From its fifth successful year of participation, the company is awarded the "Long-term Product Quality Award". If a manufacturer does not participate in a year or does not reach the required number of awards, it loses the possibility to claim the award.
