WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
"The Hartog Senior is soft and short in texture so Kupido gets it down easily. Even before and right after dental surgery, he still got rid of the Hartog Senior very well. Thanks in part to the Hartog Senior, he stays at a good weight and still has lots of energy and zest for life!"
"I am super satisfied with the Digest! The horses are all eating the feed for significantly longer. As a result, you also notice that they chew more and thus produce more saliva which is better for the stomach and intestines. They all eat it super and also important: they look very good, I'm a fan!"
"I was immediately excited about the Hartog Comfort! Because it is ideal: a balancer supplemented with a mix of fibre-rich roughage. And also low in sugars, ideal for my fussy cold blood. Because, many foods she refuses, but not the Hartog Comfort at all. Happy horse, happy owner!"
At Hartog, quality is a high priorty; quality is guaranteed through full process monitoring – from sowing to distribution. Many more companies in the agricultural sector find Hartog a reliable partner in controlled production.
GMP stands for voor Good Manufacturing Practices. In 1992 the current GMP+ Feed Certification scheme started out with this. Afterwards, it developed into a full-fledged certification scheme by integrating ISO quality management requirements, HACCP and other elements. The + stands for the integration of HACCP: ‘Hazards Analysis and Critical Control Points’. The foundation of the GMP+ systematic is partly determined by continuous improvement according to the principle of the Deming circle ‘Plan, Do, Check, Act’: write down what I’m doing, do what I’ve written down and providing proof that I effectively did it.
