MPS-Socially Qualified (S.Q.)
Van der Salm believes in the importance of a safe healthy work environment. By satisfying the MPS SQ requirements, we have chosen to provide all of our employees with a safe healthy work environment. We also notice that consumers are becoming increasingly critical regarding the origins and production conditions of the products they want to purchase. Our customers as well are more frequently asking for the MPS SQ certificate as a condition for doing business with their suppliers. We see this as a good development!

MPS-ProductProof is a tool that makes it visible whether a product meets certain requirements. At least four times per year there is an independent sampling per product. MPS-ProductProof also requires registration within 24 hours after using a crop protection product. Van der Salm has started this from 1 May 2017, due to this maximum transparency in the field of durability this certificate really matches our company.
