INVESTMENT IN OUR BUSINESS
Quality Consistency Service
These are the founding principles for which Poppies Europe has grown its customer base & product range and which we support our business on.
The Quality of our products we produce is our most important aspect within our manufacturing facility. To do this we have and continue to undergo significant investment on new production lines, constantly upgrading and adding new production equipment. Consistency is as important as the quality of the product we supply. To help offer a consistent product the production facility has undergone several audits the most important being we are a BRC grade A accredited site.
Service is a must to ensure we give our customers exactly what they need when required. We have a large team to ensure our customers get to see and speak to somebody when they need to but also it allows us to visit customers on a regular basis to demonstrate new products and develop relationships.
