First party keg manufacturer with FSSC certification
Now also market leader in product safety
Hundreds of different beers and brands are bottled on all five continents in the popular 5-liter party kegs from Huber Packaging. Huber Packaging’s party barrel plant is now the first manufacturer of 5-liter tin kegs in the world to receive the certification for the Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000 management system. “This is a proof of the high safety standards we set for our customers during production comply with our party kegs! “emphasizes Edward Ros, Head of the Beverage Business Unit at HUBER Packaging Group.
Above all, large national and international breweries have carried out the certification according to FSSC 22000, which ensures the food safety of all materials used, and expect this from their partners as well. One more reason to implement this project at Huber, thus further improving and documenting the already high level of product safety.
The TÜV Nord Austria carried out the audition with flying colors in the party barrel factory in Öhringen, it is now repeated every year. The basis of this system is Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), which has been proven for decades, as well as the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP).
Since Huber Packaging developed the first party keg over 45 years ago, there have been groundbreaking technical innovations, such as the first built-in tap that was launched in 1998. The high quality of the decorative motifs was also awarded several times, eg at the Can of the Year Award.
“For our customers, there is just one more reason to put on Huber party kegs: Not only because of the technical superiority in the production, the filling and the cones, but also because we assure all our partners a high product and food safety to document this in addition to the ISO 9001 certification now also with the FSSC certificate. We can rely on our quality, “affirms Edward Ros.
