Red Label

A certification for French products that defines orchard production specifications, harvesting specifications, and storage and packaging specifications aiming to guarantee a fine tasting, high-quality product for the consumer. Every year blind taste tests prove the high-quality taste of our product. The certifying criteria are as follows : Harvesting at maturity with 6.7°brix / Guaranteed sugar content 12° brix upon shipment – National benchmark governed by the Ministry of Agriculture, upheld by the Association for the Sale of Kiwifruit in the Pays de l’Adour region / Operational traceability from planting to shipment / Recording of practises.


Certification of Product Conformity is a certification awarded to French Products upheld by SIKIG guaranteeing implementation of good, sustainable farming practices in orchards, and high-quality taste. Harvested at maturity with 6.5° brix / Guaranteed sugar content at 12° brix upon shipment / Operational traceability from planting to shipment / Recording of practises.



Protected Geographical Identification : a certification recognised at the European level that associates the product’s taste with the know-how of Pays de l’Adour regional producers.




Reference managed by a German supermarket association (FOODplus), also applicable to farms. It provides a benchmark for good farming practices with regard to traceability, environmental protection, and health and safety.

The company’s integrated management system takes into account :

  • quality in relation to levels of customer satisfaction
  • the environment and the company's impact on its surroundings
  • food safety

This system is BRC and ISO 9001 - ISO 14001 certified.


ISO 9001 version 2008

Is an international standard that compiles organisational company procedures. It guarantees that customer specifications will be met.


ISO 14001 version 2004

Is an international environmental management standard. This standard helps all types of organisations improve their environmental performance (reducing their negative impact on the environment) while making a positive impact on their financial results.



The British Retail Consortium (BRC) represents the most influential British distributors. In 1999, they developed two benchmarks, one of which is BRC Food, used to validate companies providing own label products. This is an international Food Safety standard created to define criteria used to evaluate safety, quality, and production in order to meet regulatory standards and to protect consumers. The standard is based on the principle that the food business should have all-round knowledge of the food they produce, process and market, and must have systems in place to identify and manage significant food safety risks.

This requires:

  • strong management commitment
  • the adoption of a HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) or risk management plan relating to food safety)
  • a documented quality management system
  • total control over the production site, the product, processes and human resources

Each criterion is assessed on three levels :

  • Basic
  • Superior
  • Recommended

The certification is awarded with a general rating from C to A for certifiable levels.
BRC version 5 is currently applied at SIKIG, and has been since November 2010. SIKIG is certified grade level B.


Organic farming

Is a farming style based on respect for living things and natural cycles, which adopts a holistic approach to production by favouring the agro-ecosystem, biodiversity, soil biological activity and biological cycles.
In order to reach these objectives, organic farmers undertake not to use (and apply a regulatory ban on) synthetic chemical fertilisers, synthetic pesticides, and genetically modified organisms.
Organic farming is regulated at an international level and legally defined in many countries. The regulations are generally based on the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM). IFOAM is an international association that coordinates active organisations in the organic sector. The Label requirements do not relate to product quality but rather to respect for the environment.

It is governed by the following regulations :

  • COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 271/2010 of 24 March 2010 amending Regulation (EC) No 889/2008 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007, as regards the organic production logo of the European Union
  • Commission Regulation (EC) No 889/2008 of 5 September 2008 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 on organic production and labelling of organic products with regard to organic production, labelling and control
  • Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 of 28 June 2007 on organic production and labelling of organic products and repealing Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91
