We are deeply honoured to be named one of Europe’s most caring companies when it comes to safety, recognised with a “Special Mention” for setting and exceeding product safety standards for soothers, bottles and cups. While all winners were awarded for a specific product, MAM was awarded for pioneering the safety regulations, which has actively contributed to raising requirements throughout the industry.
As early as the 1980s, we began developing the soother standard for Austria, which has subsequently been implemented across Europe. Our internal requirements and testing criteria go well beyond the norms. MAM soothers are subjected to 40 different testing methods before being made available for sale, while MAM bottles must pass 28 different tests. We have established our own research department and work closely with medical experts and parents during the development of our products. To ensure that every product meets our highest standards, product quality is constantly monitored and documented with a robust traceability system.
When it comes to product safety, babies are a particularly vulnerable group. With the product safety award, the EU honours companies that go above and beyond the requirements set down in EU law, achieving even greater consumer safety. This year represented the first edition of the award, which was open to companies from all EU members states. EU-level juries chose the winners: A Gold, Silver, Bronze award and Special mention was given to the categories SMEs (Small & Medium Enterprises) and larger companies. We are very happy to be recognised by the European Commission with this prestigious Product Safety Award. For more than 40 years, we have positioned ourselves as an industry leader in product safety, our top priority being the development of products for the well-being, safety and health of babies.
