FPS New Zealand wins MPI accreditation
New Zealand's ministry for primary industries (MPI) has accredited freight forwarder FPS New Zealand to handle and transport imports and exports of dairy and non-dairy products for human and animal consumption. All primary processors of animal material and products for human or animal consumption in New Zealand are required to operate under an MPI-approved and independently-verified risk management programme (RMP). This applies to every link in the supply chain, including freight forwarders.
FPS New Zealand – a founder member of the FPS Group network of independent forwarders and consolidators - has become one of a few freight forwarders in the country to undergo and pass the rigorous processes required to attain MPI-accredited status. As a result, FPS no longer has to co-load through an MPI-approved freight forwarder for shipments of a wide variety of animal and dairy commodities, such as infant formula, honey and health supplements.
