Source your ingredients from evaluated exporters
Regardless of whether you require natural ingredients for foods, pharmaceutics or cosmetics: High-quality products are the only way to satisfy the high demands of consumers. It is therefore crucial to find the right suppliers throughout the world. IPD helps you do exactly that. In addition, to make it easier for you to implement the supply chain law, we make sure that our partner companies have short and transparent supply chains without intermediaries.
We know that product certification is becoming increasingly important for companies in Germany and throughout Europe, which is why we give particular attention to this aspect. No matter whether that means ISO standards, organic, HACCP, IFS, BRC or Fairtrade certification: We find reliable and evaluated exporters for you, who meet your requirements, and we mediate direct contacts to them – at no cost at all, of course. We also ensure that all trading partners are familiar with the principles of sustainable business management.
