where are we headed
Where Are We Headed?
  • There will always be an IP (Value- Enhanced) market
    • Food and feed industry moving from a supply-driven to customer-driven market
    • Customer will continue to mandate segregation, food/feed safety, and quality systems in supply chain
    • Allows the consumer a choice
eurepgap core values
EurepGap – Core Values
  • Food is safe from contamination/health concerns
  • Food is high quality
  • Environment is not harmed
  • Workers are adequately trained and paid
  • Wildlife is taken into account
  • Animal welfare
  • Traceability
  • 100% Dutch supermarkets
  • 35,000 firms/62 countries
  • 254 questions (41 major musts, 122 minor musts
circle vs chain
Circle vs. Chain
  • In supply chain, everyone above and below has shared interest in outcome
    • Information must flow to all
    • Product integrity is influenced by all
    • Enhanced value is shared by all
grain food safety
Grain Food Safety
  • Goal:
    • To have each grain producer and grain handler treat the grain as a food product or raw material.
    • We don’t know which grain will be used as food and which will be used for feed

  • Grain handler must pass a food safety audit
    • Audit includes:
      • Adequacy of Food Safety Program
      • Pest Control
      • Operational Methods and Personnel Practices
      • Maintenance for Food Safety
      • Cleaning Practices

what type program is needed
What Type Program Is Needed?

Only your customer can answer these questions.

  • What is the purpose
    • Regulatory or commercial requirement
    • Market advantage
  • How Broad
    • How much information is needed
    • Which parameters need to be monitored
  • How Deep
    • How far back in the food chain
    • EU requires “one-forward, one-back”
  • How Precise
    • What degree of assurance for the data collected
