Food aid

As part of its international activities, General Control is involved in control of food aid around the world.

 

These checks are made on behalf of donor governments, and require a very special experience in terms of their execution. They are mostly conducted on difficult operations, with geopolitical contexts requiring an ability to adapt quickly. General Control was surrounded by a team whose experience in this area goes back over 20 years.

 

The principle is the knowledge of different ways of unloading, storage and distribution of aid, with services that, beyond the thechnical control, these services are used to ensure that goods can be delivered in the best possible conditions.
