Quality Management & Sustainability

We take our corporate responsibility seriously and implement a wide range of measures to ensure that our operations and the services we offer are constantly being improved and made more sustainable. Strict guidelines and standards ensure that we can meet the highest quality expectations at all times – both in terms of our services as well as in environmental management.


Controlled quality, tested products and safe consumption from a single source. LVA consolidates a wide range of expertise. Nevertheless, we engage in an intensive exchange of information with scientific institutes, platforms and reliable partners. Why do we do this? Because collaborations offer the best opportunity to expand our own horizons and at the same time the range of products for our customers.
