QUALITY & INNOVATION
Over the years, new preservation techniques such as carbon-dioxide and nitrogen, have been developed in the biological sector. These techniques have required storage centers to introduce structural measures in order to make their equipment suitable for the preservation of organic grains.
Together with their stockists, Cotrade has committed itself over the years to drive the market towards a new type of grain preservation, using preservation techniques with a low environmental impact to improve the wholesomeness and the maintenance of products’ organoleptic characteristics.
We ensure that the rules established by European and national legislation are respected, including regulations 852/2004 for food products, 183/2005 for feed products and 848/2018 regarding organic in general.
We carry out periodic inspections at already-qualified suppliers with Certificated Auditors, who carefully check out the factory and perform sampling.
Our goal is the safeguard of food safety, achieved by impartially verifying the layout and documentary systems of the factories, in conformity with a solid internal HACCP manual.
Cotrade strives to certify the entire production chain, involving farmers, stockists and end-users.
We meet customers’ demands by being able to count on our trusted partners, selected to be sensitive to new market trends and requests.
All the commercial agreements developed by Cotrade are accompanied by the documentation of the origin of the product, from harvest time to the moment of storage, checking the main documents including the Certificate of Conformity, the Documentary Evidence, and the Annual Plan of Vegetable Production (PAPV).
To reach this goal, we always analyze new requests and trends in the cereal market together with our suppliers and their farmers, with the support of agronomists.
