Nearly a decade ago a client approached us to store their organic olive oils right around the same time we’d been having meetings with a brand new (now multinational) quinoa brand.
Well versed in dealing with fulfilment of glass, liquids and foodstuffs we, of course, had no concerns in arranging a meeting and providing a safe, secure, and dedicated warehousing and fulfilment function for these two growing businesses.
As part of the process, we worked hard to put in a process to support their certifications as ‘Organic’ food providers.
If you were not already aware;
The labelling and marketing of organic food and feed products is controlled by EC Regulation’s (EC) No. 834/2007 and (EC) No. 889/2008. Any person or organisation intending to produce or process organic products must be subject to an inspection and certification procedure by an approved Control Body.
Along with our clients, we chose the Organic Farmers & Growers Association. Due mainly to their responsiveness and support.
After plenty of internal process amendments / additions, racking re-organisation, a host of internal training and a lot of work with clients, suppliers and OF&G we were certified as approved Storage / Warehousing Distribution for Organic producers.
So if you are looking for a warehousing and fulfilment partner then look no further. Sussex Transport and our pick and pack division www.ukpickandpack.com are ready to take the load and remove a collection of your headaches.
