calidad xtrachêne

As far as XtraChêne is concerned, producing oak alternatives requires first class technical skills and quality monitoring.

- Effective tools

XtraChêne has workshops with specific equipment devoted to producing and toasting its oak alternatives in Segonzac, France and in Lebanon, Kentucky, USA.

XtraChêne has a new-generation toasting machine and a tool designed specially for toasting our oak-fire sticks.

- Controls

All lots of oak used are analyzed according to our HACCP plan regarding haloanisole and halophenol compounds and meet the requirements of the OIV and regulatory texts.

- Traceability

From the moment an oak tree is selected, a unique lot number is assigned and maintained throughout all the processes of seasoning and production, and then the end product is labeled at completion. This guarantees the traceability of each XtraChêne product.
