Are There Ever Any Mistakes In The Manufacturing Process? Are Some Batches Non-Marketable? If Yes, What Happens To Such Batches?

After mixing, we take a sample for quality control from each paint batch we produce. Quality control ensures that the quality requirements set for paints are met. Only once the quality control laboratory has approved the sample, the paint of the batch is filled in cans. Every now and then, batches do become un-marketable either in the manufacturing process or during transport. The quality of the product allowing, we try to re-utilize the paint in our manufacturing processes. If this cannot be done and the paint is nonetheless of a prime quality, we may use it in different social projects of our Sustainable Beauty program or sell it to our staff. The disposal of the paint is the last option.
