Traceability

All oats produced in Finland can be tracked back to the farm that grew them. This is possible through a practice called the Grain Passport. The Grain Passport was established in 2013 when the grain farmers, traders, industry operators and the Finnish Cereal Committee agreed to create a unified system for tracking grain production. The Grain Passport is required for every single batch of grain that is sold by a farmer. It contains information about the production, the three previous transport loads and even the cleaning of the cargo space. Thanks to the Grain Passport, possible problems with the grains are identified quickly and tracked back to the farms so that necessary measures can be applied.
