There are often discrepancies between the EU rules for "clean food" and the reality of raw material production in the countries of origin. Most importers and wholesalers in Central Europe do not personally know the current conditions. The specialists of the Hanseatic commodity broker Specialty Brokers regularly travel to the countries of origin to inspect on site guided by the shippers and farmers where the sultanas, sunflower and pumpkin seeds are grown, processed, and stored.
Only in this way can Specialty Brokers realistically assess which raw materials are of sustainably good quality. In addition, Specialty Brokers influences the quality level in the countries of origin through travel and direct talks with producers and sets new standards from which wholesalers, producers, and consumers in the home market in Germany and Europe benefit directly:
Better, faster processing; fewer damaged or rotten goods that must be sorted manually; raw materials that comply with the rules and are correctly declared; and a contact person who can be reached around the clock throughout the year to solve problems on your behalf, thus guaranteeing a sustainably favourable purchase of raw materials.
