COCERAL

COCERAL is the European association representing traders of combinable crops and processed plant derived feed and food commodities, and operates the GTP (Good Trading Practice) scheme.

The members of COCERAL are the national trade organisations of most of the EU-27 Member States, who for their part represent collectors, distributors, exporters, importers and agribulk storers of the above mentioned commodities. The members are composed of essentially private traders and in some countries also farmers' cooperatives. Furthermore, COCERAL has associate members in Switzerland.

AIC schemes recognise GTP as an assured supplier scheme, but because GTP participants are allowed to trade both assured and non-assured goods, it is important that UK companies clearly state their assurance requirements prior to purchase.

Coceral GTP documents can be found on the GTP website here.

AIC scheme participants wishing to check the status of a company claiming to be GTP certified should go to certified companies here.
