We only source the best premiumuniform hard maize varieties. Our sourcing partners are mainly located inArgentina (plata-maize) and in Europe.
In Argentina we have contracted dedicated services andstaff to sustain our relations with several local parties in the supply chainand implement improvements. This way of working guarantees the full quality and IPcontrol of the whole supply chain from seed to maize-kernel (IP). All raw material is checked in the several stages(from seed till shipment) by an external certified organization in order to besure that the material complies with all rules and regulations for NON GMOFood. We focus on growing quality NON-GMO specialty maizecrops with retained flint characteristics meeting our customers' requirements.Yield is less important.
Codrico believes in the compelling logic of striving for long-termpartnerships. This is not only based on the fact that we have to contractacreage one year in advance to guarantee stability of supply and also ourinvolvement with and aid to our sourcing partners. It is in everyone's interest to maintain thequality standards and yield of harvest. Codrico also supports manysustainability programs at the farms of our partners and shares knowledge toachieve the highest quality of raw materials year after year.
We emphasize on maximizing the use of naturalresources, e.g. sun drying maize, natural irrigation and drainage and weminimize the use of pesticides and fertilizers.
