Quality for Life™ is the seal of excellence from DSM. It encapsulates DSM’s commitment to creating a safer, fully traceable, more reliable and sustainable business. With Quality for Life™ we aim for you to be in capable hands.
In our industry, you can’t put a price tag on peace of mind – especially when it comes to protecting the public and nurturing brand value.
Quality for Life™ - a unique and systematic quality program from DSM - is our response to the needs of customers for safe, reliable and traceable ingredients produced in sustainable supply chains. It has four strands:
How safe are your customers? How good is drug efficacy? The DSM organization invests many resources in the quest to ensure unmatched product and service quality for you. In terms of track record, our APis for antibiotics alone contribute to around half-a-billion lifesaving treatments every year.
In an increasingly diverse marketplace characterized by complex value chains and burgeoning globalization, the Quality for Life™ seal gives our customers assurance that we endeavor to be the most reliable partner in the market. From solid supply chains our global footprint makes it easy for you to use our ingredients by also offering regulatory and application support, market insights and product development assistance.
Underpinning our strong track record in innovation and science is a global supply chain and logistics network that leaves nothing to chance. Our distribution network is based on robust processes supported by seamless physical, documentary and information flow. In fact, both forward and backward traceability exercises are a key part of our internal audit program – ensuring that ingredients can be tracked and found quickly.
How committed is DSM to reducing its carbon footprint through improved production processes? In September 2011 we were named number one in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index in the Chemical sector – for the third year in a row. But the Quality for Life™ seal is not just about the ingredients themselves. It is a strong communication platform for our commitment to the environment, our people and the welfare of those around us.
