13th January 2022

“The Finnish Cereal Committee (VYR) has been working with traceability and sustainable themes in Finland since our establishment. Now as a SAI Platform member we are eager to learn how these systems work in different business environments and how we could suit these methods to the cereal sector”

Tarmo Kajander, Chairman, The Finnish Cereal Committee (VYR)

VYR is the co-operation platform of the Finnish cereal and oilseed sector. Their aim is to improve the functioning and general efficiency of the Finnish cereal, oilseed and protein crop sector. The committee has over 50 members: Farmers unions, grain trade operators, grain and oilseed industry, plant breeding, research and advisory organisations.

They implement development and information measures for the grain value chain and coordinate cooperation between the various parties in the grain value chain to maximise the potential of the Finnish grain sector.
