Quality

Quality is an ongoing process for Pom 2 Sèvres.

In order to obtain these certifications, each site must prove that it implements the good practices required. Every year, an auditor from an independent certication body checks them on sites. Since first time, every producer and packhouse has complied every year with these requirements.
