As a feed producer, you may directly purchase primary products in order to sell them as feed or to process them into feed. It is not mandatory for the primary producer to be FCA-certified, but he must meet certain minimum requirements (see FCA document BT-02). These requirements are fixed in a quality agreement.

How does a quality agreement work?


In the months before the harvest period and the receiving of the goods, the primary producer signs a quality agreement and sends it to the client. This happens at every direct purchase of primary products (both of animal and of plant origin) to primary producers in the world.


Purchase of primary products in Belgium


In Belgium, a quality agreement is not enough. Purchases made from Belgian primary producers is required to take place under the Vegaplan Standard certification as much as possible. However, in exceptional cases, this is not possible; in that case, both parties can make use of a quality agreement.


For the 2020 harvest, be at least 80% of the purchases of primary products of plant origin should be made from Belgian primary producers with a Vegaplan Standard certification.


What do you need to pay attention to?


  • A Belgian farmer who produces primary products of plant origin must have an appropriate Vegaplan Standard for the specific product. Some examples:


  • Cereals or straw -> COP code(s),
  • Potatoes -> Pdt code(s)
  • Roughage (such as hay) -> Fg code
  • ,…

For more information, see www.vegaplan.be


  • The percentage shall apply, per group of primary products (i.e. all cereals (wheat, barley, maize, triticale, etc) or all potatoes (consumption, transformation,…) on the volume received from the Belgian primary producers.
