Clean feed raw material is our calling
Sometimes port storage activities can be a calling. Throughout Stevena’s existence, the feed and food industries and agribulk processing related to agriculture have formed one of the cornerstones of our company’s operations. Years of experience have honed our methods to a point where they can meet the strict requirements of feed hygiene. We are capable of carrying the responsibility for providing salmonella-free raw materials to Finnish domestic animal production. We operate in accordance with a self-control plan, which is, in addition to feed factories, monitored by the Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira. We also utilise an HACCP system for various functions. We constantly train our personnel to handle products in a precise and careful manner. All those working with feed raw materials or food items hold the Hygieniapassi hygiene proficiency certificate, for example. In 2013, the agribulk operations of Backman-Trummer, and thereby Stevena, received the GTP certificate of the European association of cereals trade, COCERAL, as one of the first companies in Finland. As regards storage activities, the GTP certificate corresponds with the GMP+ certificate.
