About quality


We don’t just manage quality, we take it to the next level

Today's globalised and highly complex food supply chain involves many potential quality and food safety risks.

Animal nutrition and fish feed producers play a crucial role in securing trust throughout all of these links, from raw materials to the supermarket aisle.

Nutrace® is our food safety and quality programme. It is developed to set uncompromising new standards from feed raw materials through to finished products, and to help minimise our customers' exposure to risks.

The programme has five pillars that represent the bedrock upon which we safeguard the manufacture of high-quality feeds from high quality raw materials:

  1. Certified Quality & Food Safety
    Certification against leading international safety and quality standards and strict internal procedures form the basis of consistent sourcing, formulation, production, storage and logistics.

  2. Ingredients and supplier assessment
    Continuous ingredient and supplier assessment ensures that only safe and sustainable raw materials are used in the production of animal feeds.

  3. Monitoring & Control
    Global monitoring and control systems prevent the presence of undesirable substances in our products.

  4. Risk management
    Risk management procedures ensure an effective and professional response should the need arise.

  5. Tracking & tracing
    Tracking & tracing systems guarantee rapid, efficient information flows between Nutreco, our suppliers and customers.
