Quality and official approvals help increase the confidence of our clients (wineries and cooperage), being that a response to the greater and greater exigence of the consumers on quality and food security.

Our goal is to be competitive and nowadays having proper certifications is vital to get that objective. In this respect, we have taken a significant step forward in food security and we have certified JIOrings’ Nortap® plugs, which, in addition to being FDA (U S Food and Drug Administration) compliant, comply with the requirements established by the BfR, Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung (Federal Institute for Risk Assessment).

This certificate of Intertek clearly states that our plugs, when being in contact with the wine, do not release any harmful substance for consumers’ health and neither do harm or alter the flavor or the bouquet of the wine. It is therefore more than proven that they can be used in barrels.
