In order to respond to global food challenges, large-scale production is essential. It also remains essential to guarantee the safety and quality of this production.
Tereos works on a daily basis to provide its customers and end-customers with excellent products, in terms of quality, origins and conditions of production.
To make that possible, the Group is directly supplied by more than 18,000 farmers who are close to its processing factories. The Group also seeks excellence in terms of industrial processes thanks to the implementation of standards of quality and food safety management, such as ISO 9001, ISO 22000 and FSSC 22000, as well as the deployment of training programmes with the aim of reducing accidents to zero.
84% of Tereos sites had at least one certification relative to quality and food safety in 2015
Specific awareness campaigns have been deployed on Tereos sites around the world, like “Risco Zero” in Brazil and “Safety and Me” in Europe.
These campaigns promote the Group’s best safety initiatives and also make it possible to raise awareness among employees, specifically through posters as well as workshops on a variety of themes
