We will "assign a" "YES" "to this question if:

If the company does not publish this information in its reports, check its assortment in its online store, in a physical store, on the Openfoodfact platform (https://es.openfoodfacts.org/) or simply by calling Customer Service.

EU.

We will assign a "NO" if:

- The company does not make any statements in this regard or does not indicate the type of certification of its products.
