Certified by National and European standards, ECM constantly assures its excellence, winning not only the trust of its clients and consumers but also that of international specialists who have classified the quality of ECM beverages at the highest level.

Up to 2010, products produced in-house totalled 135 Medals awarded by Monde Selection, the oldest and most prestigious independent organisation in the Quality Selection sector, founded in 1961 in Brussels.

A contest is held annually awarding outstanding beverages for their organoleptic qualities, in comparison with other products in the same category. The selection is made by a jury of specialists elected based on their professional expertise. Recognition by this institution therefore constitutes an indisputable guarantee of quality of ECM products to its consumers.
