With diminishing soft commodity life cycles and searching for bonafide hard commodities, acquiring quality products or assets, processing and delivering them in the marketplace is an on-going challenge. If the acquired product does not meet the appropriate specifications, the result can be a loss of business, reputation and revenues. Delayed shipment or wasted materials can potentially result in a product recall.
MJS Commodities inspection services cover on-site verification intended for a product or asset to meet pre-identified and determined criteria in order to reduce risk, control quality, confirmation of quantity and meet compliance with international and local regulatory prerequisites, voluntary standards and client’s own requirements.
Each inspection we offer has a specific objective and benefit depending on our client. We can monitor the quality of products throughout production and shipping. We can work with you to select and customize a program that best meets your needs. Specific services include audits and analysis of raw materials, process quality assurance, quality control checks and final product analysis.
The global food and agricultural industries are expanding and changing rapidly. Eating habits in fast-growing countries continue to evolve as consumers become wealthier, and people everywhere become more aware of food quality and safety issues. In response, governments have put in place strict regulations and businesses along the food supply chain have developed various standards and control plans to prevent food safety issues. Some markets such as the European Union impose specific restrictions on, for example, the use of GMOs in production, acceptable levels of residues or pesticides, or traceability.
Companies involved in the production, packaging, handling transportation and sale of food and food products, or in the agricultural commodities industry, must comply with regulations to access valuable consumer markets. They may also choose to enforce strict control plans to safeguard reputation or increase their attractiveness to consumers.
Our independent inspection services cover quality control, import and export processing, health, safety and environmental management, as well as efficiency and product integrity, procurement of phyto certificates, prior to production to verify that the quality specifications for materials are being met. This can help minimize wasted time, material costs and delayed shipment if specifications are not being met and safeguard the reputation of manufacturers and retailers.
We also offer inspections on behalf and interest of governments at a country’s border.
International trade is increasingly complex due to fast-changing regulations imposed by individual countries, governments and third parties. Whether buying or selling at international levels, traders (and this can include producers/exporters/importers/ traders/banks/insurance companies…), government bodies and international organizations need to control goods into and out of their countries, to protect citizens from substandard goods coming in and a nation’s reputation, improve import and export tax collection, and protection during ownership transfer. Goods need to conform to the international regulations in practice.
MJS Commodities assists in promoting quality, health, safety and environmental protection, and strive for efficiency in governments and organizations, and the services they deliver.
MJS Commodities can provide its clients with a broad range of services in support of international trade. We offer inventory management and monitoring of products to investors, traders, producers and banks for commodities stored at warehouses which goods are usually pledged to banks and clients.
Our company can assist in the issuance of warehouse receipts and monitor stored cargoes for commodity banks and which are accepted by the major international banks.
Depending on the client’s requirements, we can carry out warehouse surveys to assess the suitability of storage facilities and can station dedicated staff at the warehouse, if requested.
Alternatively, we can physically visit the warehouse on a regular basis to inspect the warehouse and goods stored. Reports will be provided, inclusive of photographs if requested. Cargo releases can be monitored by our staff, prior to arrival at the warehouse and after release from the warehouse, if client requests for such service.
Given the growth of the global market, sourcing and procurement processes have become more complex for business due to various geo-cultural and language differences. Many manufacturers and distributors do not want to deal with the financial risks, nor are they equipped to handle the complex export and import process involved with foreign transactions. Therefore, many buyers struggle to find distributors willing to tackle the complexities of exporting to foreign markets that may have been branded as difficult.
To eliminate these issues, and address spend and additional cost savings to the bottom line, it is important to have a highly efficient sourcing services model. In cases where a company may have difficulties dealing with vendors due to communication issues, payment terms, shipping or documentation requirements, MJS Commodities is the solution.

By acting as a company’s single point of contact for sourcing commodities outside of their country, we reduce internal labour costs and improves efficiencies, ultimately providing bottom-line savings.
Through our worldwide network of contacts, we harness our skills of the supply industry to each commodity’s scope, type and profile. Based on the commodity characteristics and global sourcing potential, the scope will be suitably enhanced providing a prompt, reliable and cost-efficient service to meet the current and future business needs of our clients from small to mid-market and the Fortune 500.
Many commodities can be very sensitive to external factors, and they can also be easily damaged during transportation should the packaging be subpar. There is also the risk that such commodities might also be fumigated with chemicals that are toxic to humans. Due to this sensitivity, it is highly advisable to have commodity inspections conducted upon departure, during transit or on arrival.
MJS Commodities can provide inspection and witness to the loading and unloading of product to verify that only the inspected and approved final product is shipped and received according to the buyers’ requirements.
We can also organise your intermodal traffic, water and air transport for you – from the country of origin to the port, and then to you, assisting with the complete process, including all documents and formalities concerning the import and export services.
