Standards for producers – orientation for consumers
The DLG promotes product quality of foods on the basis of binding and impartial quality standards, based on current scientific findings and the recognised test methods it has developed.
With its International Tests the DLG leads quality assessment in Europe and is accredited in accordance with international norms.
Every year over 27,000 foods from and other countries are tested in the DLG Quality Tests. The “DLG Award Winner” label is only issued to foods that have been found worthy of it in sensory testing and that satisfy the DLG’s stringent quality criteria.
These include careful selection of raw materials as well as optimal processing and preparation. Only foods of above-average quality receive the DLG awards in Bronze, Silver, or even Gold.
