The production plant in Heimenkirch was awarded for the 26th time, the one in Schongau for the 20th time. The ceremony took place at Würzburg.
Food manufacturers are awarded in every year. The requirements for the award are clearly formulated: Companies must have participated for five consecutive years in the quality controls performed by the DLG test centre for food with at least three awards per award year. After the 5th year of successful participation, the company is given the “Award for longstanding product quality”. If a producer does not participate in a given year or if it does not reach the required number of awards, it loses its eligibility to receive the award.
