Grains and oilseeds

As from 1969, our company has been involved in marine cargo surveys on grains and oilseeds for food and feed, relating to shipment or storage of these commodities as bulk, or break-bulk.

We have extensive specialist knowledge about grains, grain by-products and grain derivates, all with their individual specific problems.

We regularly carry out surveys involving problems like wetting, mould damage, moisture migration and subsquent spoilage, heating, insect infestation of products like corn, wheat, barley, several other grains and by-products.

We are frequently consulted in problems of storage and shipment of oilseeds, like soya beans, sunflower seed, rapeseed, linseed, etc, all over the world. We often give advice and carry out surveys on seedcakes like soya bean meal, sunflower pellets, palm and copra pellets. These products may suffer from heating when moisture is not stable.

We maintain close links with superintendents, laboratories, entomologists, mycology- and other food and feed research institutions, and the Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority.

We have carried out detailed investigations in off specifications, dioxins, GMO issues and mycotoxin contaminations (like aflatoxin) of grains and oilseeds.
