Peterson and Control Union inspect a wide range of commodities and products such as coal, grains, oilseeds, vegetable oils, sugar, molasses, fertilisers, fruit and vegetables, seeds and nuts.
We've been doing this for the past 100 years and have an excellent track record acting as a trusted, independent, third-party surveyor in quality inspection. We act as your boots on the ground, representing your needs where they matter most; close to the product.
Quantity inspections, quality determinations and verifications are also part of our services as well as Pre-Shipment Inspections (PSI), load supervisions, warehouse inspections and much more. For example, many of the large coal and biomass end-users choose our sampling and verification services for assurance against specific performance parameters. In other words, we confirm that our customers get what they need and get value for their money. There is a reason that our slogan is ''trust well placed''.
Quality assurance is a priority to us. To ensure quality throughout the supply chain we participate in many quality assurance programmes such as the ISO and EN standardisation committees and our company includes superintendent members of GAFTA & FOSFA. Furthermore, we take part in international branch organisations such as the International Federation of Inspection Agencies (IFIA) and the Sugar Association's RSA/SAL.
