We not only strive to meet the legal requirements and expectations of our customers, but we also implement our own high standards to the quality of our products and processes. Within the company, our quality management is actively involved in process development - from raw material purchasing to dispatch. Regular assessments ensure that processes are subject to continuous improvement.
The quality management department in Uelzen lays the foundations for the quality assurance and quality control at all sites of the Group. Our employees verify the specifications for raw materials and finished products and - in cooperation with the sales department - agree with customer specifications. Quality assurance develops and updates suitable test methods, defines test procedures in SAP, and monitors the results and their documentation.
Quality management supports customers in auditing our sites and integrates new requirements in order to effectively improve Uelzena’s performance. Scheduling and implementation of required, risk-based supplier audits ensure the quality of the raw materials used. Development and implementation of our internal audit plans for Uelzen and the other sites guarantee products of a consistently high quality and full cooperation in the processes. The success of this effort is confirmed in external certifications.
Broad knowledge — multi-faceted tasks
The Uelzena Group produces approximately 1,000 different products including milk powder, butterfat, butter and cheese, evaporated milk and dressings as well as instant beverages and health products. The range is regularly supplemented by new products and product variations. This diversity provides new daily challenges for our employees in the quality management department. The expertise of the team is continually brought up to date through regular ongoing training.
Part of the team
The quality management department at Uelzena is linked to all relevant interfaces in the company. Our employees work closely with product development, production and sales. Cooperative and effective communication with suppliers and customers is also important to us. This allows for any deviations to be detected at an early stage and quality to be reliably controlled.
Diversity and responsibility as well as creativity and an overall view on all processes in the company – this is what working in the quality management department is all about. There is one exception: there is no daily routine.
