DREWSEN is first in the world with FSSC 22000 certification for its Competence Center for drinking straw production

With the establishment of a Competence Center for drinking straw papers, DREWSEN wants to make a decisive contribution to the development of high-quality paper drinking straws. The interaction of paper, glue and drinking straw machine are largely unknown.


Since first producing and marketing papers for the food industry, DREWSEN has ensured that they comply with all of the relevant hygiene standards, including the VO 852/2004 – HACCP hygiene management system, which was established several years ago and certified by DQS GmbH.


Even more stringent hygiene requirements must be met when producing drinking straws in DREWSENs Competence Center. To ensure this, DREWSEN consciously elected to work to an approved standard by the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative). Within a few months, a FSSC 22000 hygiene management system was established, which was successfully certified by DQS GmbH in May 2020.


DREWSEN is proud to be the world's first manufacturer of drinking straws with FSSC 22000 certification.
