Our Dedication to Quality
Western Canadian grain is considered the standard of quality. The rich prairie soil, extreme climate and the expertise of Canadian farmers all come together to produce some of the best grain in the world. Our growers have an international reputation to protect, and our buyers in both North America and abroad assume we’re providing them with the best grain available, so we’re very careful about quality control. It benefits everyone to protect the integrity of our grain.
As part of our commitment to providing the best possible quality, we have worked to ensure our Inland Export Terminals are all ISO 22000:2005 compliant.
The ISO 22000:2005 standard is a food safety management system by which we monitor and control food safety hazards within our operations, and ensure we meet or exceed statutory and regulatory food safety requirements. The principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) are included in the ISO 22000 system and define the approach we use to identify and prevent potential hazards.
Thanks to our system of quality control, buyers can honestly declare they use only the best grain for their consumer products.
The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) is a joint initiative between the US government and businesses involved in trade with the United States. Paterson Grain was an early proponent of the program and has been a member of C-TPAT since its inception. Our common goal is to build cooperative relationships that strengthen border security and preserve the supply chain’s integrity. As part of this initiative, we have established security practices to protect our cross-border shipments, and we share these guidelines with our related companies and partners involved in the processing and transportation of our grain and grain products.
