Sunflower is the key raw material for OPTIMUS AGRO. According to Olga Zhigan
, the head of the quality department, the company can accept any quality of raw materials and form shipping lots with stable quality indicators, thanks to its own elevators.
To determine the quality of high-oleic sunflower, the elevators are equipped with ATAGO portable refractometers, allowing performing express analysis of the oleic acid content in every single transport unit. In addition, after the formation of consignments, samples are taken and sent to the testing laboratory of ZOEP, which confirms the actual quality and content of oleic acid by an arbitration method.
