In recent years, quality assurance, traceability and sustainability have gained further importance in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Historically, DSM has adhered to the highest standards in this area, and is recognized as an industry leader by customers and regulatory authorities.

Quality assurance, traceability and sustainability come at a cost. They are embedded in operating procedures, facilities, environmental and microbiological control, calibration and validation.

Quality is more than systems, human resources and investment. It is a commitment and a mindset created throughout many generations of industrialization.

With all this in mind, DSM created Quality for Life™: a seal which represents our ongoing ambition to deliver the highest levels of product and service quality, be a consistently reliable partner to our customers, ensure traceability of our products and raw materials, and ensure we contribute to sustainability in a comprehensive, proactive way.
