We take food safety and quality control seriously. We are committed to the excellence and our high-quality standards are applied through entire production process from the raw-material-sourcing into the finished products. All Leader Foods products are manufactured in Finland, in our own factories. Innovative product development, modern production facilities and strict quality requirements ensures the high-quality and uniqueness of the products.

FSSC 22000 – Food Safety and Management System

Our production processes follow the guidelines of Certification FSSC 22000 based on existing ISO Standards for food safety management systems (including SFS-EN ISO 22000). FSSC 22000 is fully recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

FSSC 22000 provides a framework for effectively managing our food safety responsibilities. Leader Foods follows also HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) regulations to assure quality control and to meet the highest standards in the food industry. Analysis of final products and shelf-life monitoring tests of finished products are conducted in an independent Eurofins laboratory.

All materials coming into our facility are subject to stringent tests to ensure they are the highest quality; any that don’t meet our standards are rejected and sent back to our suppliers.


All the ingredients are sourced according to BSCI-principles which guarantees sustainable and ethical circumstances to the local producers. As we take sustainability and quality seriously, all the products and ingredients are traceable from our factories back to the local producers’ farm. This way we can guarantee the high-quality and pureness of the products.


In addition to our FSSC 22000 Certificate, our factories have been issued Organic Certification (EU) ensuring the production of organic products. We use the finest certified organic ingredients, grown without pesticides and herbicides.
