Quality laboratory

There is a certified central quality laboratory in the structure of SE Artyomsol and also quality laboratories of the production units.

The main task of these units is to control the quality and safety of the finished products, the incoming control of raw materials, packaging materials. All the products are shipped under careful laboratory control during the shipment, on the basis of which a quality and safety certificate is issued for each consignment of finished products.

The central quality laboratory is an independent structural subdivision of the enterprise that carries out its activities in accordance with the current legislation of Ukraine, salt industry normative documents for the products.

The quality of rock salt produced by the enterprise is affirmed by conformity certificates of UkrSEPRO system. The enterprise has implemented and successfully operates the international integrated Quality Management System and Food Safety ISO 9001:2015. ” Quality Management System” and ISO 22000:2005 “Food Safety Management Systems. Requirements for all organizations in the chain of production and supply of food”.  Due to the constant control of the laboratory specialists, the quality of rock salt is ensured at all technological stages of production and finished products.

SE Artyomsol’ products are high quality products. It is confirmed by the numerous domestic and foreign awards for quality.
