ACTIVE RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Kaslink is a house of active R&D. We strenghten our sturdy food industry experience with our own research and development department, that concentrates heavily on developing our clients’ products better and fulfilling whatever product needs our clients have.

We like to think that nothing is impossible, especially when we have the best professional assets and ingredients available at our use. Fresh ingredients from pure Scandinavian nature are an essential part of our recipes. And the recipes become perfect, when they’re put together by a team of driven food industry professionals.

CERTIFIED QUALITY

Maintaining product safety and high quality is our primary responsibility. That is why we constantly monitor the quality of our raw materials, production processes and final products.

We have adopted a self-inspection plan with the aim of developing and maintaining quality criteria throughout the production chain.

In addition, we have earned the following certificates and obey the following practices which guarantee that our way of making business is ethical, environment-friendly and of high quality.

FSSC

With FSSC quality system, we effectively manage food safety responsibility in our company.

SMETA

The SMETA audit aims to improve working conditions in the global supply chain ensuring that a factory can comply with all the local labour laws and regulations. It also means that our workers work in a healthy and safe environment. 

ORGANIC PRODUCTION

Our factory has an organic certification.

BIOGAS CERTIFICATE

In order to reduce our factory’s carbon footprint, we use renewable Finnish biogas in our production processes.

 

 

GOING GREEN

Sustainability – and having an environmental conscience in general – is something very dear to us.

This green mindset has led our company to pay more and more hands-on attention to sustainability in the whole supply chain. Our approach is simple – the company has invested and is going to continue investing in environmentally friendly solutions in its everyday actions.

This means, for instance, that the ingredients used in our manufacturing processes are collected from local suppliers whenever it's possible in order to reduce logistics emissions.

In the manufacturing processes, nothing is wasted – most of the waste is re-used and transformed into bio gas that actually runs our factory, while the rest of the waste is recycled in other ways.

Distribution of all goods is handled with lowest possible impact on the environment. All goods are packaged using the recyclable Tetra Pak packages, which, in terms of logistics, are excellent for both transportation and storing.
