Quality is vital when trading agricultural commodities. Goods must meet the quality requirements defined in the contract or there is a risk of penalties.

Full outturn quality (FOQ) guarantee

Our full outturn quality (FOQ) guarantee solution removes the potential for losses resulting from agricultural commodities not meeting quality requirements after discharge. Our service has multiple advantages, including the elimination of erroneous results caused by different sampling and testing methodologies being employed by local contractors. With a global network of highly trained inspectors, our harmonized processes will ensure these variables are removed. We also assume responsibility for quality discrepancies between loading and discharge. Under specific agreed terms, we will remove the risk associated with loss in quality.
