Quality Control

Quality control team supervises the quality of beverages sold at Alko with regular sensory evaluations, in cooperation with the suppliers. In our work we utilize the laboratory tests made by Alcohol Control Laboratory (ACL) to make sure that the consumers have a safe and high-quality beverage selection at their disposal. We also check that the package markings on our products are up to the legal requirements. 

The quality control operations begins already from the new product selection process where we are in charge of the practical arrangements of the tastings. Quality control is a part of a tasting team, which chooses the new products for Alko’s selections. Before the sales of a new product can begin, the product goes through the sensory evaluation as well as a number of laboratory tests.

The quality of the products that are already in our selections is supervised by inspections in accordance with product group specific quality control programs. Products are tested and basic product information, such as images and vintage information, is updated when changes are notified to happen.
