140 years

This year’s event marks a special anniversary for SGS. It is 140 years since the company was established in Rouen, in 1878, as a grain inspection house.

Back then, the company’s founder, sitting on the docks at Rouen, realized that grain exporters were losing money because they were not represented at the port of destination, that importers would only pay for grain received, not what was shipped. During transit, there were losses in the volume of grain due to shrinkage and theft. SGS was set up to inspect and verify the quantity and quality of the grain at point of departure and on arrival.

Since then we have steadily grown into our role as the industry leader. We have done this through continual improvement and innovation and through supporting our customers’ operations by reducing risk and improving productivity.

This event brings together over 3,000 delegates, from 56 countries, making it the most important annual conference in the cereal and feed commodities sector’s annual calendar.
