Integrity Management System of  Berglandmilch Molkerei

Quality, security and trust…

…consumers expect a great deal of a brand

Thanks to a multitude of products and brands consumers today have an almost unlimited choice and, apart from the prize, it is particularly the quality and image of a brand which is decisive. Consumers are generally willing to pay more and they also shop more consciously. However, the brand has to offer a certain quality which is both consistent and reliable. As a consequence, keeping the brand promises, providing consistent quality and avoiding scandals are important steps in order to gain a competitive edge and tie consumers to a brand.


Berglandmilch and the Integrity Management Database


Berglandmilch is Austria‘s largest company in the agricultural sector. About 13,000 farmers deliver the most different types of milk to Berglandmilch. The different standards as well as the communication with several inspection bodies are handled by means of the Integrity Management Database and documented in detail. As a consequence, Berglandmilch always has the daily updated data of their suppliers available.


Data quality and security is of utmost importance for Berglandmilch. In order to ensure and improve this availability, Berglandmilch has decided to employ an Integrity Management Database (


How does the system which Berglandmilch uses work in detail?

Right after the inspection at the farm, the inspection and certification bodies transfer the corresponding data as well as the certification status of the farm to the Integrity Management Database. Every time, before the milk is being collected and the routes are planned, the current status of the farm is checked through the database and only if the certification is valid the farm is considered for collection in the route planning.
