Since the end of October 2011 Soenen Golfkarton can deliver FSC. The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council ®) is an international organization that promotes responsible forest management world-wide. Because only the highest demands for socially, ecologically and economically responsible forest management are good enough.
We are now organised to sell FSC Mix 70%. This means that we use both wood or paper fibres from FSC-certified forests and recycled fibres. This label allows you to print FSC on the end-product, in our case the cardboard box. The FSC is growing in importance. Retailers in particular now only ask for FSC boxes.
How can you check whether your supplier does indeed hold an FSC certificate? Go to www.fsc.org and right-click “search certificates”. Enter the firm in question and the licence code will immediately appear if the company is FSC-certified. Our licence code: FSC-C108242.

Because BRC/Iop is a regular demand by our customers, we have decided to meet the needs of our clients. Soenen corrugated board recently became the proud owner of the BRC-IoP certificate.
BRC-IoP certification is developed by the British Retail Consortium and focuses – as well as the GMP FEFCO standard developed by the European carton producers – on the requirements for food safety guarantees by the HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) guidelines that are specific to this link in the food industry. The detailed guidelines of the BRC-IoP standard are primarily intended for producers of packaging materials.
