Celebrating 75 Years of Excellence in the Cotton Industry

Agri Trade HighlightsFibersSeptember 12, 2022

We’re proud to say that SGS has now been at the forefront of the cotton industry for 75 years, playing a key role in making it as safe, sustainable and successful as possible.

SGS acts as an independent testing, inspection and certification service provider, working with cotton producers, traders and importers to mitigate their commercial risks and help settle transactions. We provide cotton services throughout the entire supply chain, which gives us a unique insight into the state of the industry – and allows us to better support our clients’ operations.

In this issue, we take a look at the history of cotton controlling services at SGS and introduce our global cotton network.

"We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved over the past 75 years, and we look forward to the future as we continue to serve the global cotton industry with the highest levels of quality and integrity." Jamie Fisher, Global Fibers Business Manager at SGS. 

"We are delighted to see the enduring success of SGS. You are a company whose professional reputation for inspecting and testing cotton is well known throughout the cotton supply chain.

We wish SGS many congratulations on your 75th year in cotton, and we look forward to many more years working together." Bill Kingdon, Managing Director at International Cotton Association.
