COCERAL statement on quality of grain

Brussels, 17 May 2023 – There have been several rumours that crops of inferior quality have been placed on the EU market. COCERAL members, which trade agricultural raw materials destined to the supply of the food and feed chains, as well as for technical and energy uses, are vigilant when receiving shipments whether the goods are originated from EU member countries or from import.

Commodities placed on the EU market must respect the high safety standards established in the EU legislation and COCERAL members are fully committed to ensure this compliance.

All consignments from any origin are tested and our members reject any cargoes that could potentially have a negative impact on human and animal health. This strict process is part of the daily practice that COCERAL’s traders have in place under their risk assessment and risk management responsibilities.
