We fulfil a crucial role in providing agricultural commodities across the globe. As many of our products are ultimately used in the food or feed industry, we have an important responsibility to ensure that our products are safe.
Why this matters
Viterra supplies products which are used as food or feed, or in the production of food and feed products. We have an important responsibility to make sure the products we supply are safe for consumption by humans and animals and for their intended use, in line with evolving rules and standards. Food and feed safety is heavily regulated in many countries we operate in and we must comply with all regulatory frameworks. Our approach aims to ensure our products are safe and we satisfy all required legislation.
Failure to properly manage food and feed safety within our business may result in us supplying products which may be potentially unsafe and even have serious adverse health effects – and this affects everyone’s right to safe food. It could also expose Viterra to legal liabilities including fines.
We carry out wide-ranging food safety and quality management procedures so that consumers can be confident that all our food and feed products meet the highest international standards.
As we manage the whole supply chain, we can ensure the products our consumers receive meet their specific requirements and are consistent, reliable and high quality. All products are tested for quality by accredited authorities.
