Monde Selection Quality Institute, established in Belgium, has been honoring the quality of consumer products since 1961. The institute has established itself as one of the oldest and leading authority in the quality assessment of consumer products based on organoleptic and scientific parameters. The evaluation process starts with the organoleptic evaluation that will assess the beverage’s aspect, odour, taste, aftertaste, mouthfeel, conformity to style and many other criteria.
To have an overall judgement of the quality, experts will not only analyse and control chemical or microbiological parameters, but also evaluate the product’s composition. For waters, they will look at the minerals, pH, the anion, cations, etc. which may be subject to various standards in different countries and target audiences.
