> General information <

As supply chain globalization grows, raw materials and products continue to be sourced in new ways and from different sources. Brokers, agents, and importers are an integral element in bringing producers and retailers together.

IFS Broker was created to ensure the safety and quality of products filling the gap between production and distribution. Trading partners expect broker, agents, and importers to communicate their product requirements to manufacturers and that these specifications will be understood and implemented.

As you know, StC International attaches great importance to quality assurance and specifically food safety. StC International is IFS Broker certified and we only work with regular suppliers who are at least Global G.A.P. and GFSI certified.

All our products meet at least the EU legislation regarding food safety and together with our suppliers we have ensured that if there are customer-specific (and extra-legal) requirements with regard to food safety, these requirements are met. This ensures Food Safety from producer to end customer.
