Product safety, traceability and quality in the food as well as in the feedindustry are extremely important. Our business has been GMP+ and HACCP certified for many years already.
Quality is not only related to our products. We strive for long-term relationships with our suppliers and customers.[/fusion_text]
The GMP+ Feed Certification Scheme was initiated and developed in 1992 by the Dutch feed industry. GMP + Feed Safety Assurance is a system for the assurance of feed safety between all the linking partners within the feed chain. There are
several components in the GMP+ FSA system listed, such as requirements for the quality management system (ISO 9001), HACCP, product standards, traceability, monitoring, chain approach and the Early Warning System. Certified companies can
demonstrably ensure that feed and feed ingredients meet the legal requirements and that traceability is ensured.
As an independent administrative authority, Skal Biocontrole ensures that the production, processing and marketing of organic products meet the relevant EU regulations, the Dutch Agricultural Quality Act, and its own regulations and basic principles.
With a view to monitoring the Dutch organic chain as a whole, Skal visits and audits companies on an annual basis. On behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality,
the organisation ensures a demonstrable and reliable European organic quality mark. The Ministry has designated Stichting Skal Biocontrole as control authority for carrying out these statutory tasks as they ensue from European regulations for organic production.
The European regulation offers Member States the choice of how they structure their control regime. The Netherlands has opted for an unambiguous structure, in which a single control authority is responsible for all statutory control tasks related to organic production. This makes Skal a unique organisation.
Skal Biocontrole has certified Wagenaar Dairy BV for trade in organic dairy powders for human consumption and for trade in and production of organic dairy powders for animal feed.
The BRC Global Standard for Agents and Brokers has been developed to provide a framework for managing product safety, quality and legality for these non-manufacturing businesses in the food and packaging industries. Agents and Brokers
(non-manufacturing traders) who buy, sell or facilitate the trade of products, provide a critical link in the movement and trade of products, and influence supplier product safety and quality standards, as well as being responsible for
maintaining an effective chain of traceability.
