Quality equals customer satisfaction
All the employees from our company’s departments are pulling together. We are directing all our activities towards a single goal:
We want our customers in Germany and abroad to always be satisfied with us, our products and our service.
Top-quality raw materials at reasonable prices, many years of manufacturing experience and careful workmanship, combined with modern technology –
these are the foundations for the quality of our products. This means that we are always able to offer our customers a unique taste experience.
Trust is good, control is better
Our trust-based, collaborative relationship with suppliers from throughout the world, some of which we have worked with for many years,
safeguards our high quality standard right from the start.
In our in-house laboratory, the deliveries are tested in accordance with strict guidelines, which go beyond the statutory requirements.
This is the only way we can be completely confident on behalf of our customers.
We know how
The knowledge relating to the manufacture of fine chocolate and exquisite products is our “sweet secret”.
Our experts are very familiar with the centuries-old stories and the tricks of the cocoa and chocolate trade.
The continuous professional development of our employees lastingly promotes knowledge and personal responsibility and is an important guarantor
for the years to come.
State-of-the-art production facilities and computer-aided manufacturing processes, a high level of production reliability and high standards of hygiene –
the other, modern side of chocolate manufacturing at Piasten.
