Country of origin

We have experts with a great deal of experience and knowledge thoughout the food and water chain to keep the quality of food and water products high and safe. Quality starts with the raw materials at the start of the chain. Our worldwilde network enables us to perform sampling and analysis in the country of origin. Our verified samplers work in accordance with the applicable EU guidelines and the standards of, among others, the Fosfa and Gafta. The standards are set up in such a way that the analysis results issued from the sample provide certainty for the entire load. The procedure that we use for this is accredited by the Dutch Accreditation Council in accordance with the EU regulation EG 2002/63.

If there are doubts about the origin of your products, our experts help you to determine the origin of the composition of raw materials or products. We are also able to prevent fraud with a risk analysis. 

Laws and regulations

Raw materials and products have to legally meet certain quality and safety requirements. The Dutch rules are captured in the commodity law. But nowadays there are also more European rules that apply in the Netherlands. The NVWA checks whether the commodity law is being complied and ensures that food is safe, Extra-statutory rules guarantee agreements within a sector, for example GlobalGAP, where the retail trade places demands on agricultural products. We advise you about the changing and applicable rules and ensures that you are always "compliant". 

"Our samplers are active in the ARA-region (Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp), but we can also help you with with sampling and inspections in the country of origin." 

Retailers

Retailers are at the end of the chain. Quality and safety are extremely important for them because of their delivery to- and trust from- the consumers. Therefore, they have set conditions for quality systems at manufacturers to guarantee the quality and safety of finished products. We employ quality consultants who help on a secondment basis to implement quality systems at food manufacturers. We also provide training for employees at manufacturers, so that they can better gurantee the quality and safety with their own knowledge.

Furthermore, our specialists are able to monitor whether the composition of your product complies with legislation. We also perform label checks to ensure that the label complies with all legislation, even when exported to other countries. Eurofins Food Safety Solutions and Bureau de Wit also carry out hygiene audits for large and small retailers or catetering establishments as a form of self-regulation. The audit of the NVWA is then no longer an issue.

We have experts with a great deal of experience and knowledge throughout the food and water chain to keep the quality of food and water products high and safe.
