ALZO JOINS AUDIT ONE

Alzo is pleased to announce its participation in the AuditOne program which simplifies, standardizes, and streamlines the process by which major consumer products companies such as P&G, J&J, L'Oréal, Unilever and Estée Lauder conduct quality audits globally. The AuditOne process establishes a uniform standard for each category consolidating a variety of proprietary and often repetitious audits. These audit systems, while very close in their objectives, require suppliers to host multiple audits and comply with individual reporting procedures to meet compliance standards established by each of their customers. By consolidating the variety of proprietary and often repetitious audits, AuditOne will simplify operations, increase transparency and enhance compliance reporting throughout the supply chain.
