Certification and Assurance: RTA Crops and Sugar Beet Scheme

Red Tractor Assurance Crops and Sugar Beet Scheme promotes assured crops through quality assurance and traceability to further encourage consumer confidence. It has been established now for over 10 years and is recognised by all major UK purchasers. The scheme covers all aspects of growing, storing and handling  crops and adopts good practice with current legislation.

NSF Certification certifies 90% of the assured crops grown under the scheme and offers an integrated package where all farm enterprises can be assessed in one visit.
 

Certification to the RTA standard is now a requirement for growers delivering to all British Sugar factories.

Bringing an everyday grocery item such as sugar under the Red Tractor scheme logo is a major step for the industry in providing consumers confidence in selecting assured food.

NSF offers an integrated package where all farm enterprises can be certified in one visit.
