All the suppliers we identify for you are subjected to a thorough process of examination. We prepare them for the European market and check that they meet the requirements of the most important European standards for sustainable production and high food safety. We attach importance to short and thus transparent supply chains without intermediaries because this makes it easier for you to comply with the supply chain law. In addition, we give advice to producers in our partner countries on certifications such as GLOBALG.A.P., EU organic and other relevant standards (Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, etc.). Whether in organic or conventional quality - with the support of IPD you will be quick and certain to find reliable exporters.
