One of the core values of Spodriba is not only the high quality products but also our environmentally-friendly way of manufacturing them. In order to provide high and stable quality products in an environmentally friendly way, the company follows several basic principles:
The basic principle regarding the selection of raw materials is high, stable and verified quality raw materials from well-known companies in Europe, such as France, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, Germany, Scandinavian countries, etc., and finally, extracts of natural plants from Latvia.
In order to ensure this, continuous cooperation with suppliers is maintained by following the novelties in the raw material market, price fluctuations and the quality of the raw materials.
The basic principle of product development is a high and stable quality product at a competitive price, which is equally friendly for both: the environment and humans.
In order to ensure this, the product development includes a responsible selection of raw materials, the environmental assessment of products, testing conformity of the product effect, laboratorial tests for product quality assessment in several stages: physically-chemical and microbiological testing, stability testing by determining a period of use of the product, express-tests. Thereby product is being developed in 3 laboratories: development, chemical and microbiological.
The basis of all products is high quality, demineralized water, which is prepared in the equipment EUROWATER installed in the company. It is used for 3-level purification of drinking water from artesian bores: iron removal, softening and the impact with a UV lamp to ensure microbiological stability.
A competitive price is ensured by setting optimization of well-considered production costs as a priority without allowing derogations in the quality requirements of the raw materials of the products.
Quality control is ensured by the company laboratory which controls the incoming raw materials and packing, tests conformity of physical and chemical parameters of each batch of products and ensures strict control of the technological processes. The quality of the finished products is also controlled within the entire warranty and storage period.
Since 2005, a certified quality management system has been developed and implemented in Spodriba according to the standard ISO 9001:2008. By implementing the quality management system in the company, all the possible processes which affect the delivery of a high-quality end product to a customer, were identified. Within the system of ISO 9001 the electronic register of internal and external problems is established in the company which allows to perform the required adjustments to the discovered problems in order to eliminate them faster and more effectively. ISO 9001 certified system characterizes the care of customer safety taken by the company which does not allow delivery of a non-quality product to a consumer.
One of the basic principles of Spodriba in the process of developing and manufacturing products is to have an environmentally-friendly attitude. Since 2004, a certified environmental management system has been developed and implemented in Spodriba according to the standard ISO 14001:2004. In 2015, the integrated management system has been re-sertificated in Spodrība according to the new version of the international standard ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 requirements.
Ensuring the successful functioning of the ISO standards in all outputs, production and sale processes of products is the basis of efficient, systematic and successful total progress for the company.
