In April, SGS will complete installation of a new automatic sampler (Cobra H 3001) at the Serbian port of Novi Sad, one of the most important ports in Serbia.

Country-wide, Serbia handles the export and import of some 2 Mio MT of corn, 0.7 Mio MT of wheat and 200 KMT of other grains and oilseeds.

Sitting on the banks of the Danube river, the port of Novi Sad handles some 600 KMT of grains and oil seeds annually. This investment will enable SGS to perform sampling on the cargo of all trucks entering and leaving the port laden with grain or oilseed.

The investment in new equipment, builds on our existing facilities, to improve the sampling of corn, wheat, barley, sun seed, soy bean and rapeseed, destined for export markets. It will make the checking of trucks and the delivery of representative samples to the lab for testing more efficient.

Our on-site laboratory, equipped with an Infratec 1241, quick test moisture (Aqua TR), test weight scale, sieves, balances and all equipment for fast aflatoxin testing, enables us to perform fast and effective sampling and testing. On successful completion of testing, a certificate of quality will be issued. In addition, our experienced team at Novi Sad conduct a full range of inspection services, as well as IP traceability.
