ENFIT is the first international association to develop European and international standards for more security, safety and transparency in the supply chain. Raw materials for chemicals, food or feed are transported worldwide from agriculture and farms, mining and oil production, to primary productions, like dairy, grain and seed mills, to secondary production (production of end products for consumers).
While the transport of chemicals focuses on product quality and transport safety (transport of dangerous goods), the transport of food and feed is primarily concerned with the fulfillment of hygiene requirements and secondarily with the prevention of cross-contamination with viruses, bacteria, salmonella, plastic granules or allergens in focus.
Transport containers, like bulkx, silos, tanks, IBCs, pallets, boxes used for this purpose, as well as the vehicles with which they are transported, the technical and hygienic requirements and must be suitable for the products.
In order to maintain a high product quality and to prevent cross-contamination, the transport units must be regularly cleaned and disinfected in compliance with international ENFIT-standards.
With its members and stakeholders, ENFIT has the complete know-how of all processes in the supply chain and, with its work, creates an effective transfer of know-how between the involved stakeholders.
Our vision: A secure, reliable and traceable supply chain
