At Cortas, Quality Control extends to building design and equipment. Our fully automated factory is located in the area of Beirut Port on a 6000-square-meter plot. All processing, such as the mechanical decortication of sesame seeds and distillation of rose petals and orange blossoms, is performed without the use of chemicals.
Finally, Cortas’ Quality Control Department is responsible for the recording and reporting of documentation, via regular procedures and written systems, which facilitate the prompt and accurate transfer of information to appropriate personnel.
