Quality and safety

Delivering high quality products and services, and anticipating on the safety of our products and employees is our top priority. This has been the basis of our work for over a hundred years. We continuously invest in applied research and production technology. We keep building and optimizing our facilities and factories. All based on customer needs. This requires deep understanding of both product ingredients, technology and business processes. We globally share local knowledge, experience and expertise. Although our products are often the same throughout all markets, the application can differ due to specific market characteristics: climate, genetics, housing conditions, legislation, and so on. Always focused on delivering high quality products and measurable, relevant and sustainable value at farm, field and industry.

Quality and safety applies to our entire portfolio, from arable, nutritional and industrial solutions, to all our systems and services. All our production and distribution companies, wherever they are located in the world, meet the latest quality standards. Most of them comply with international standards like GMP+, FCA or ISO 9001. Internal audits are used to check compliance to the international standards and our corporate guidelines.
