Numerous inspections are carried out daily at the Vion companies by both the inspection services and our own quality department. The results are continuously saved. On this website, Vion publishes the results as a graphical summary or as original copies. Here you will find the inspection results per quarter and inspection in a graph. Vion uses three different inspections: live inspection, meat inspection (food safety) and organ conditions. The explanations for each graph provide background information.
The audit reports of the German veterinary authorities and the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) and the reports on process and product comments can be found on the location pages.

Vion’s quality system is based on legislation. All Vion branches are ISO 9001 certified. The food safety standards used within Vion are: British Retail Consortium (BRC) or the International Featured Food Standards (IFS Food). A branch can expand this with other quality systems, such as Integrated Chain Management (IKB), Qualität und Sicherheit (QS), Beter Leven hallmark (BLK) and organic. The NVWA assesses the legislation.
