CERTIFICATION ISO 22000
MARTIN VIALATTE has for many years followed a quality approach based on recognised standards. After being certified ISO 9001 in 1999, a quality management system, MARTIN VIALATTE decided in 2009 to step up to ISO 22000, a food safety management system in the food chain. MARTIN VIALATTE’s goal was to better meet its customers’ expectations with regard to food safety, by demonstrating its control of potential hazards and by permanently providing safe, satisfactory products. As a result, production, packaging and storage of MARTIN VIALATTE oenological products are now certified ISO 22000.
All the men and women who make up our teams, in particular those who work on our production lines, have gone through rigorous training programs on hygiene. In line with the requirements of ISO 22000, we ensure that they receive the answers to all the security-related questions they may have. Our system is also regularly assessed and updated with the collaboration and involvement of every single individual.
MARTIN VIALATTE’s oenological products are fully traceable thanks to the numbering of batches – for finished products as well as for raw materials – and the efficiency of its traceability ERP system.
The batch number indicated on each product makes it possible to closely track every step of the process: raw materials used in production, suppliers, production conditions, transit warehouses, etc.
Numbering batches of raw materials also ensures control over the traceability of products manufactured with such materials, until it reaches the consumer.
We are equipped with a laboratory to conduct physico-chemical tests on wines, as well as a tasting room, tools without which we would not be able to carry out our technical support and prescription activity. Recognised for its reliability, our laboratory has been accredited according to the ISO/CEI 17025 norm (details on the scope of accreditation on www.cofrac.fr) and takes part in inter-laboratory control networks. The laboratory, which specialises in analysing wine samples, is an approved export laboratory, with the capacity to issue certificates of analysis adapted to the regulations of each importing country. It is also equipped to conduct tests on other products such as vinegars, ciders, fermented fruit beverages and spirits. Our AFNOR-certified tasting room is an invaluable asset that effectively complements the laboratory.

The COFRAC accreditation covers the testing services conducted by the laboratories in Epernay, Reims and Bar/Seine.
As part of our approach to food security (HACCP), we analyse and control the biological, physical, chemical and allergenic risks throughout the entire oenological procedure, from the moment we receive raw materials and packaging until the finished product is ready.
Meanwhile, other major recent events relating to food security included the full review of the HACCP and the application of the REACH European regulation.
