Factory

High quality production and strict hygiene standards

Access to the production line is strictly controlled. Before entering the production line area, everyone is required to wear factory-issued uniforms and shoes before passing through a specialized air tunnel to remove dust. Adhesive tape rollers are then used to ensure that no dust remains on the clothes. Finally, hands are carefully washed and disinfected. No one may proceed to the production line until they have fully completed this process.

All tanks, ducts and drainage pipes in our factory are made of stainless steel to prevent the propagation of bacteria. All equipment is carefully disinfected on a daily basis. All pipes in the ventilation system of the factory are completely covered with fine-meshed filters, enabling the plant managers to ensure a constant intake of dust-free fresh air.

By taking these measures, we are confident of offering our customers products of the highest quality and hygiene. At Royce', it is our policy to respond continuously to customers' requests and produce confectionery with uncompromising standards.
