Galvanina’s goal has always been to satisfy consumers with excellent products. Hence, we have created a range of unique, top-quality organic and conventional soft drinks.
Our search for and selection of raw materials and the production and processing methods we adopt make constant reference to basic international standards. In addition, we have developed a number of significant measures which have enabled us to obtain all the major global certifications.
The BRC is the British Retail Consortium global standard for food safety. Established in 1998, it guarantees that branded products have been made according to well-defined quality standards and in compliance with minimum requirements.
It is one of the food safety standards recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI): an international initiative whose main aim is to consolidate and promote food safety throughout the entire supply chain.
Besides being a necessary prerequisite for exporting products to Europe, application of this certificate is a recognized guarantee of corporate reliability.
The IFS (International Food Standard) aims to promote an effective selection of food product suppliers by large-scale retailers, based on their ability to supply safe products that comply with contractual specifications and legal requirements.
This model is recognized both in Europe and in the rest of the world. This certification too is part of the food safety standards recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI): an international initiative whose main aim is to strengthen and promote food safety throughout the entire supply chain.
Application of this standard is a necessary prerequisite to exporting products and is a recognized guarantee of corporate reliability.
HACCP certification is an international standard based on Codex Alimentarius principles and defines the requirements for effective food safety control.
This methodology is currently the most widespread for assessing – using a preventive approach – the risks and dangers related to the hygiene safety of products and production processes and for establishing appropriate control measures.
Bio is a merchandise certificate and guarantees that the finished product has been made using organic raw materials.
It therefore certifies that the raw materials used have been obtained using the best environmental practices, a high level of biodiversity, the protection of natural resources, the application of strict animal welfare criteria and production adapted to the preferences of consumers who favor products made using natural substances and processes.
In the United States, organic products are regulated by a specific Federal Law, in effect since 21 February, 2001, known as NOP (National Organic Program) and managed by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture).
Italian and European operators who intend to sell organic products in the USA are required to be certified in compliance with this law, by bodies recognized for this purpose directly by the USDA.
Organic products already certified according to EC Regulation 834/2007 can be sold in the USA thanks to the equivalence agreement between the EU and the USA.
Organic products already certified under EC Regulation 834/2007 can be sold in Canada thanks to the equivalence agreement between the EU and Canada.
The word “kosher” means “suitable” in Hebrew.
This certification guarantees that food production is suitable for consumption and complies with kosher dietary standards, meaning it follows the set of religious regulations governing the nutrition of observant Jews.
These are very precise dietary rules which concern both the permitted ingredients and the processing methods and in particular, how animals intended for consumption must be slaughtered. The result is a “suitable” food (or kosher) not only for the body but also for the soul.
It is the internationally-recognized benchmark standard for the quality management of any organization that wants to satisfy its customers with regard to the products supplied and services provided, as well as the continuous improvement of company performance.

Please note: Only Galvanina products bearing the OK Kosher symbol are kosher certified.
