Industry to revisit electronic grain passport

Representatives from the grain supply chain are to look again at the feasibility of developing a digital grain passport system after a similar project was shelved two years ago when they failed to reach agreement on roll out.

The Cereal Liaison Group (CLG), whose members include NFU, AHDB, maltster, miller and haulier representatives agreed at a recent meeting to create a working group which will undertake a feasibility study and report back in early 2020.

 

NFU combinable crops chairman Tom Bradshaw said he has more confidence that the project will succeed this time. “We are now in the position where all the industry has come together to say they want an electronic grain passport and we are moving to the next stage. We never got to that two and a half years ago. Now there is a genuine will from all parties for it to work.”

Contractual analysis

 

A key benefit of such a system would include full contractual analysis being available to growers at the time of grain delivery, said Mr Bradshaw. “At the moment we only find out if a load has been rejected.”

 

Earlier availability of information could lead to changes in store management, for example, he added.

 

While Brexit is said not to be a key factor in the decision to revive the project, an electronic system would help put transparency in place for end users which would help UK growers to compete, said Mr Bradshaw.
