PBS Assure

A total quality assured program

The PBS Assure program has been devised to provide seed buyers with recognition for using the best quality pollination bags in their seed production and with the intention of instilling confidence in buyers. Assurance schemes help to provide consumers and businesses with guarantees that products have been produced to particular standards. Membership by seed producers can help build purchaser confidence and gain new marker opportunities for products by meeting highest standards.

Accreditation is currently limited to the Malaysian market but it is our intention to roll the program out to other areas soon. If you are interested in becoming a PBS Assure customer or would like to talk to us about setting up a program in your own region please let us know by filling out the details in the apply now section below.
