We are amidst revising the Happy Hazelnut Standards since its conception in 2014. The revision aims at identifying loopholes and verifying the effectiveness of the standard so as to adjust and improve the system to ensure that the objective of the project are achieved.
All stakeholders are involved in this process. The stakeholder engagement is not only welcomed in this process, but crucial to the success of this certification system. During the Biofach in Nuremberg, Varistor AG as the initiator of the project, met with the inspectors of the independent accredited certification body Kiwa BCS Öko-Garantie GmbH to exchange on their experiences during the inspections and certification. Their information will be integrated in the revision process.
