SQC Farm Assurance Scheme

SQC Farm Assurance Scheme


The purpose of the Scheme is to ensure that consumers and the trade have confidence that combinable crops are grown on farms with a high standard of management, especially of farm operations which might affect the wholesomeness or safety of the food produced or the health of the environment and countryside. 

The Scheme assists farmers to meet their obligations under the Food Safety Act 1990.

SQC ensures that member farms operate production systems encompassing high standards of crop management, and particularly that fertiliser, crop protection product, growing, storage and overall farm standards have all been subject to an independent assessment procedure.
