Biotrust, organic produce risk assessment
Due to the fast growth of the organic sector, with growing pressure to meet supply demands, it is more important than ever to ensure the authenticity of organic food and reduce potential risks such as fraud in organic produce supply chains. Companies must identify the risks that can affect the quality of organic ingredients and products, assess them and take appropriate measures to prevent risks. It is for these reasons that Biotrust was built for Bionext.

5 Reasons to use risk assessments
- Strong demand in the market increases the potential risk for fraud in some countries with inadequate supervision.
- The impact of fraud is usually very large with high claims that are difficult to insure. The damage to the reputation of the affected company is extensive.
- The requirements of organic raw materials and products are increasing. The assurance of high quality organic products, strengthens the trust in organic raw materials.
- In case of an emergency, companies with a working risk management system have an advantage when it comes to legal accountability.
- By using a system such as Biotrust, as part of an efficient and targeted risk management process, companies get the most out of the limited resources available for risk reduction.
