Activities at Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira aim at ensuring food safety, promoting animal health and welfare, and developing the prerequisites for plant and animal production, and plant health. The chain from field to fork begins with seed. Using certified, i.e. officially inspected and approved seed, guarantees a high quality crop.

All seed marketed in Finland must be certified. The Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira inspects and supervises the quality of seed used in Finland. It also examines their quality through laboratory tests. Seed Certification Unit is responsible for field inspections, post control tests and certification. Seed Laboratory of Plant Analysis Unit does the laboratory tests.
