Quality seed is the foundation of quality food. Starting with ingredients made from Certified Seed gives food processors such as millers, bakers and brewers the highest quality ingredients for their products. Certified Seed delivers specific nutritional and baking characteristics and helps ensure consistent product quality and performance to produce that perfect loaf or great-tasting beer.
To ensure products deliver these attributes, grain handlers, millers and food processors select grains and oilseeds grown from Certified seed.
