Quality Assurance

Brand Satisfaction Guaranteed

The quality assurance department of Reinhart Foodservice (RFS) is responsible for maintaining the consistency and quality of the products inventoried with special attention given to our exclusive national brand products. From canned goods to gourmet offerings to detergents, our exclusive national brand products are produced and packed to our specifications by leaders in their product category.

Product Cuttings

Comparison cuttings are conducted in our corporate test kitchen to approve new products. Products received in Reinhart divisions are sampled to confirm they meet specifications. New products under consideration are compared to similar products in the market and against our competition. Blind cuttings by experts in their field ensure fair consideration is given to all involved.

Facilities are toured to ensure food safety, sanitation, and security measures are followed.
