We search and manage quality inspectors to conduct quality inspections upon arrival of containers/trucks for you to have fast hand information on freshness and quality of your fruits or vegetables. This allows you to check if you are still in compliance with your client requirements. Though you may have established trust with your client, sometimes there are rejections of your produce; in this case our inspectors investigate if claims or rejections have basis or no and we produce report. In doing QC at discharge place we identify the nature of the produce damage, we quantify it and identify its economic value.
Traders or distributors buy from growers around the world. As fresh produce market is very demanding today than it used to be and your suppliers do everything to make their produce appealing to you, in this industry you need to have your eye on ground. Quality Index Agro™ finds quality surveyors to check if supplier is sorting, packing and loading products according to your purchasing order requirements. Also, during produce transport things happen. Our inspectors will be at discharge location to inform you if quality of your produce is intact or not and give you QC report.

Like other high value crops, quality compliance for coffee and cocoa begins during harvesting and in post-harvest phases, you cannot expect high income when quality in those phases has been ignored; your efforts to correct defects won’t change much.
