TASCC was developed because farmers and end users wanted to be sure that crops of grain, oilseeds and pulses were treated responsibly once they left the farm. That includes wheat processed by flour millers and malting barley for the brewers and distillers in the drinks industry. It provides independent verification that the trade is meeting food safety laws.

TASCC was developed because farmers and end users wanted to be sure that crops of grain, oilseeds and pulses were treated responsibly once they left the farm. That includes wheat processed by flour millers and malting barley for the brewers and distillers in the drinks industry. It provides independent verification that the trade is meeting food safety laws.

The scheme is audited and certified by an independent certification body, in accordance with the internationally recognised standard EN45011. This means that the certification body is itself independently assessed every year to ensure that the standard is implemented and administered consistently and fairly.

The scheme dovetails with UFAS and with the UK livestock assurance (Red Tractor) schemes which the major supermarkets make a requirement for the home-produced livestock products they buy.

TASCC is also recognised within the food industry as being essential to maintaining traceability of assured combinable crops after they have left the farm.

The Scheme is made up of a Scheme Manual and four codes of practice (Storage, Haulage, Merchants and Testing Facilities). The Storage Scheme is operated to a joint scheme with the Grain and Feed Trade Association (GAFTA) covering combinable crops and feed materials.


The scheme dovetails with the UK livestock assurance (Red Tractor Farm Assurance, Quality Meat Scotland) schemes which the major supermarkets make a requirement for the home-produced livestock products they buy.

Benefits

Providing safe feed and food is essential to ensure that the risk of a food or feed ‘incident’ is minimised. A complex web of supply chains combine to achieve this and the Agricultural Industries Confederation’s (AIC) feed trade assurance schemes form a vital part of the ’assured chain’ which minimises risk.

The AIC assurance schemes are designed for:

  • Feed compounders
  • Feed ingredient suppliers
  • Fertiliser manufacturers
  • Agricultural merchants
  • Seed processors
  • Biofuel producers

However, many other businesses are eligible to participate including: hauliers, storekeepers, ports, shipping operators, and testing facilities.
