India's non-GM soymeal available to UK feed sector
 

 

India's first, fully sealed 20-tonne containers of Cert ID non-GM-certified soymeal for the UK feed sector are now available through London based importers Gemcom Limited.

 

Offering both standard grade and hi-pro meal, Gemcom's unique containerised solution offers the feed industry a convenient, fully traceable and cost effective alternative to sourcing non-GM product in bulk from Brazil - currently suffering well documented supply issues.

 

In order to minimise the risk of cross contamination, Gemcom's supply of Indian material is produced, packed and sealed at source in 20-tonne containers which remain sealed until they are discharged in the UK. The soymeal is then stored separately at strategically located stores around the UK.

 

The availability of large quantities of containerised Indian Cert ID certified non-GM soymeal shipments is aimed at feed companies who still wish to use non-GM material to meet renewed retailer demand for non-GM animal feed. India already has a strong track record in supplying non GM soy to the UK food market and also supplies non GM to quality demanding markets such as Japan and Australia.

 

Users have reassurance from the start since GM soy has never been or planned to be cultivated in India. The in-built non GM status of the Indian soymeal is further supported by robust independent certification against the industry-leading Cert ID Europe Non-GMO standard. Each delivery is fully forward traceable to a customer, with each batch of containers in turn tracked back to production, region or farm.
