Quality is a term that you, as a company, must give substance to yourself. Customers know the content. Others can get an idea based on our certifications. Moonen Packaging consciously chooses to make its quality demonstrable. Because we want to. Beyond the norm, exceeding all expectations. Why?
A certificate is a form of transparency that confirms nationally or internationally that we are a reliable partner. For Moonen, each certificate obtained and each standard applied represents an opportunity. To show that we continuously go the extra mile for our customers, partners and suppliers. With our certifications and standards we help them move forward. How, you can read here.
In addition to our certificates, we are also members of a number of sustainable foundations and partnerships, such as MVO Nederland and proud sponsor of the MVO Manager of the Year.

For almost 30 year it is the mission of FSC to recover and protect forests. When FSC-forest management takes place, anywhere in the world, the forest is healthy and alive. This makes FSC-forest management an important instrument against deforestation. By choosing FSC-products you give the forest owner the means to manage the forest sustainably. This also means that forests cannot be converted into areas for palm, oil, soy or livestock farming.
