Non-GMO Certification

Audit the non-GMO supply chain with SGS and verify the quality management systems in place from the seed to the market place.

Selling food and/or feed that is non-genetically modified (non-GMO) places the burden of proof on the supply chain. Our Non-GMO Supply Chain Standard helps organizations, irrespective of type or size, to supply verifiably non-GMO product. The scope of certification can extend from a single actor in the supply chain, a few or even the whole production process.

What does the certification standard cover?

From the seed, through the growing process and harvest, transportation, collection, storing and processing to the market channel, we offer independent certification of the quality management systems. Certification also includes the verification of legal requirements relating to the labeling and traceability of GMOs.

Based on EU regulations concerning non-GMO, including Directive 2001/18/EC and regulations 1829/2003 and 1830/2003, our standard can be applied to all processes in the supply chain:

  • Seed supply
  • Farming
  • Trading
  • Processing

As well as services to the supply chain:

  • Storage
  • Transport
  • Sampling and analysis

Operators achieving certification will be subject to annual surveillance audits to ensure that compliance is maintained.

Non-GMO supply chain certification does not replace compliance with national and international regulations.

Non Amazon Biome Supply Chain

Demand for agricultural products has caused excessive deforestation in the Amazon biome, increasing carbon emissions and damage to biodiversity. As a result, in 2006, it was agreed amongst some organizations not to trade soybeans produced within the Brazilian Amazon Biome, an agreement which has been renewed annually ever since. Our Non Amazon Biome Supply Chain Certification makes sure the soybeans are sourced in the Non Amazon Biome area. Organizations trading in soybeans of Brazilian origin can now verify their legitimacy.

Non Amazon biome supply chain certification does not replace compliance with national and international regulations.
