Organic certifications of Antico Molino Rosso


Our organic certifications

It is with great satisfaction and a pinch of pride that Antico Molino Rosso wishes to communicate to all its loyal readers and customers that we are officially certified UNI EN ISO 9001: 2008 and IFS Food Vs 6.

But what is the significance of these certifications?

The UNI EN ISO 9001: 2008 standard, widely spread in recent years, is a voluntary standard aimed at establishing requirements for a good Quality Management System.

Intended for companies and organizations, it does not distinguish between areas and therefore can be applied to any production reality and not only to companies that produce food.

The cornerstones of the standard include a customer-oriented organization, staff involvement, a process-based approach and the goal of continuous improvement. 

IFS (acronym for International Featured Standard) Food Vs 6 is also a voluntary standard, but specific for food manufacturing companies. The standard establishes rules of conduct for personnel and specifications to be respected regarding production environments, processes and products.

Specific elements of a management system are envisaged to guarantee the quality and the hygienic-sanitary safety of the products, based on the HACCP methodology.

Investments and resources have been used to achieve these voluntary certifications, with the aim of being able to guarantee you an increasingly safe and quality product, a goal that has always been in the belief of Antico Molino Rosso.

Molino Rosso is Biodiversity Friend

Biodiversity Friend is a standard created by the World Biodiversity Association onlus, a non-profit association founded in 2004 at the Natural History Museum of Verona.

The association has two missions: to actively contribute to the inventory of the biological biodiversity of our planet and to affirm the fundamental role of education in the conservation of natural environments.

The Biodiversity Friend standard was born in 2010 and is the first standard that evaluates the conservation of biodiversity in agriculture and takes into consideration the following actions:

  • the methods of defense against adversity
  • the restoration of soil fertility
  • the presence of hedges and woods
  • the presence of nectar species and lawn surfaces
  • the presence of nectar species and lawn surfaces
  • the use of renewable energies
  • other interventions to promote biodiversity in the company

The effectiveness of management and compliance with objectives are assessed through the study of the biological quality of soil, water and air, using shared biomonitoring methods supported by the scientific community.

In 2010 Biodiversity Friend obtained the patronage of the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies.
