Quality Assurance

At Ciranda, we are dedicated to the quality and safety of our ingredients.

Quality assurance is a continuous process. Our experienced in-house QA team works closely with our suppliers to monitor product quality from lot-to-lot and verify the integrity of each ingredient. 

Our qualification process includes an in-person visit to every supplier.  While on-site, we carefully observe each ingredient’s journey, from the field to the processing plant. As we evaluate product quality, we also survey working conditions, fair labor practices, and the overall environmental health of the project.

Certified Ingredients

Our ingredients carry certifications for organic, non-GMO and kosher. Many of our ingredients are also available with fair trade and social certifications, helping our customers create better products for a better world.
