Certification label

The certification label issued by the Official Quality and Control Department (SOCFrance) is the official document certifying compliance with inspection and traceability requirements.
It is only issued if the potato seedlings comply with the French technical regulations and standards, and with the regulations on plant health.

Outstanding traceability

The certification label is assigned to a specific batch and is attached to each package that makes up the batch. It includes all the identification elements of the batch and information on its characteristics (variety, category and certification class, batch number that identifies the crop, tuber size, packaging date, etc.). It also includes the phytosanitary passport, which is compulsory for distribution in the European Union.
