Control Union Certifications was created in 2002 when Control Union acquired the Dutch Skal International, an auditing arm of Stichting Skal.

What began as a joint venture grew into a wholly owned business that continued to expand its scope of activities from organic to sustainability and beyond.

Having its roots in agriculture gave Control Union Certifications an in-depth understanding of the complex challenges of bringing products to market and the marketing campaigns that we see from today's supermarkets and department stores.
