Testfakta’s quality labels

Testfakta’s quality labels communicate the quality, performance and characteristics of the product in a credible way.

Best in test

The purpose is to show that you have the best product on the market, suitable both for the market leader who needs to defend position and premium pricing and for quality-conscious challenger brands.

Verified Quality & Performance

A third-party validation of the product’s quality and performance, with the aim to reverse potentially negative consumer perceptions. The verification is particularly suitable for private label or low-price brands.

Verified Quality & Comfort

A third-party validation for beds and mattresses, confirming high quality and good ergonomics for three different body types. The verification is particularly suitable for verification of a product range, private labels or new challenger brands.

Certified Bio-based

The purpose of a Testfakta bio-based certification is to show the product or packaging’s content of renewable material. The certification scheme is a collaboration with state-owned RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden) and follows current EU recommendations for calculation and communication of bio-based content.

What people are saying about Testfakta

Credibility, transparency and independence are core values that sum up Testfakta’s operation. This is what consumers, producers and business partners have to say about Testfakta.

Being able to stamp and market our private label products with Testfakta’s quality label has real value. This has been welcomed by customers, who are keen to look at the documentation which is used widely by our sales staff. The label provides all parties with a sense of reassurance.

Gunilla Jardestig, information manager, MIO

It can be really tough to communicate quality in an advertising context. To be successful in the long term, you need reliable evidence to support your message. The win in the wear test published by Testfakta in 2012 gave us that evidence.

Testfakta has now carried out a test of children’s winter gloves so people know which to invest in and which to avoid.

We usually work with our customers in secrecy, but the reverse is true with Testfakta’s assignments; instead it’s a case of openness and transparency.
