Common Supplier Survey

Help set our industry’s standard! The Common Supplier Survey, developed by the Cereals & Grains Association Food Safety, Quality and Regulatory Committee, is a single comprehensive survey based on the best practices across a broad range of surveys and food segmentations. This will be a free resource to manufactures allowing them to fill out one survey to supply to all customers—eliminating redundancy and wasted time. Currently, iCiX is considering adopting the Common Supplier Survey for their exchange platform. Please review the common supplier survey. If you have any feedback or questions, please contact the Cereals & Grains Association Food Safety, Quality and Regulatory Committee.
