SGS Partners with Syngredient, the Online Raw Material Marketplace
SGS has partnered with the online marketplace Syngredient and will be its exclusive provider of inspection, testing, auditing and certification services.
The Hamburg-based startup Syngredient wants to digitize the agricultural and raw materials industry and offers an internet platform on which raw materials for the feed and food industry can be traded. Syngredient makes it possible to find global trading partners as well as to organize existing supplier relationships via this digital platform.
If a transaction is made via the online marketplace, additional value-added services can be booked for delivery – such as commodity credit insurance or pre-shipment inspection. All testing and inspection services, for more than 140 countries worldwide, are provided by SGS.
For example, SGS can be commissioned to perform laboratory analysis to determine quality parameters or to rule out contamination. In addition, SGS offers on-site cleanliness inspections, loading and unloading inspections as well as pre-shipment inspections. Certifications are awarded according to customer requirements or international standards, such as GMP+, QS, VLOG, RedCert, HACCP, IFS, RSPO and others.
Interested parties who wish to join the new online marketplace to trade agricultural products for the food and feed industry can now register for the beta phase. The monthly basic fee will be waived until June 30, 2020. For more information, visit Syngredient.
