We collaborate with our partners to maintain quality and sustainability.

We collaborate with our partners to maintain quality and sustainability.

Kolo Agrarhandel GmbH has a representative partner company in Ukraine, for which the safety of all products is of utmost significance. It works closely together with local farms, right from sowing to harvesting. In addition, the in-house quality control is part of the service profile of our partner company.

The local organic farmers are fully supported and advised in all relevant matters. This is ensured by our in-house employees such as the agronomist and quality manager.

The services of our partner company in the Ukraine include the following among others:

  • Support and advice for organic farms
  • Development of crop rotation
  • Purchase of seeds
  • Use of organic pesticides
  • Work in the field
  • Harvest
  • Separate, identifiable storage

The sustainability of cooperation with agricultural holdings is a matter of particular importance. As an added value, we establish a particularly deep knowledge of all the peculiarities of the cultivation of the concrete products and create trust that has been proven over many years. Only certified organic preparations based on useful microorganisms that live in symbiosis with the natural flora and fauna are used in the fields. This helps protect the plants from pests and diseases. There are stretches of forest around the organic fields, wherein different animals live and various plants, trees and shrubs grow. The organic farmers are actively involved in protecting these stretches of forests from deforestation and exploitation by poachers, who hunt the animals and threaten their habitat.Each time the goods are loaded or unloaded, an employee in charge and/or independent inspector is present to carry out the visual inspection.
When it comes to storage, we regularly check the cleanliness of the external warehouses before using them in order to ensure high quality.

All export-relevant steps are carried out to ensure smooth import. Our Ukrainian partner company and most of the agricultural enterprises have organic certification by the Swiss authority bio.inspecta AG.

QUALITY CONTROL

We put great emphasis on controlled organic cultivation and service.

Our agronomist is in close contact with the farms, right from sowing to harvesting phases and carries out regular internal inspections. He checks the quality of the goods and the fulfilment of all prescribed requirements.
Samples are taken at various stages – field, warehouse, port, loading.
Possible test parameters include pesticides, GMOs, aflatoxins, mycotoxins, heavy metals, physical parameters and others.

A risk assessment is also carried out for possible cross-contamination.Together with the agronomists, the responsible quality manager samples the goods both during harvesting and before storage. The transport conditions and the condition of the warehouses are checked in advance by the person in charge.

An independent supervisor samples the goods and sends the samples to one of the European laboratories for analysis. In the meantime, the necessary customs procedures are completed. Only after the goods have been cleared and all mandatory requirements have been met can the goods be delivered to the customer. Since we know how valuable the time of our customers is, we take care of all other concomitant steps, which are relevant for the import from Ukraine.
