ProTerra Standard


ProTerra Standard (non-gmo)

For clients wishing to source non-genetically modified soya (products) Cefetra offers products which are certified against the ProTerra standard. A globally respected and credible standard. Given its non-gmo nature, all products traded as ProTerra-certified are – by default – handled physically segregated from all other soya flows.

See below the principles of the standard. For all details of the ProTerra standard, please check the website of the ProTerra Foundation.
