ifp Institut für Produktqualität has awarded its seal of quality to Berlin-based Florida-Eis Manufaktur GmbH. The quality seal will appear on all their pots and family packages available in shops and on the Internet, underlining the ice cream manufacturer’s high quality standards. To ensure consumer safety at all times, the production process and the ice cream shops will constantly be monitored by ifp food chemists and hygiene experts. The competence centre for food analytics not only checks the finished products, but also inspects the entire manufacturing process, right down to the raw materials used.
“The quality of ice cream developed in Berlin-Spandau in the course of more than 80 years is absolutely unequalled. Our café on Klosterstraße has reached cult status, which serves as an inspiration and as a motivation for us to produce ice cream that clearly stands out from the rest", says Olaf Höhn, manager of Florida-Eis.
“Since ifp is also based in Berlin, we were able to observe the amazing development of Florida-Eis in recent years. We know about the challenges in the context of quality policy that result from a company’s strong growth, and we are delighted that our know-how contributes to top ice cream quality in Berlin”, says Dr. Wolfgang Weber, managing director of the ifp until August 2022.
