Onset Worldwide – CTPAT Certified Member

As of September 2017, Onset Worldwide is a certified member of the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), a supply chain security program established by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).  Membership in C-TPAT requires that our company and its business partners commit to minimizing the risk of unauthorized and/or dangerous goods entering the U.S. in one of our shipments. 

This commitment requires, among other things, that we ask our business partners to analyze their physical security and internal control procedures, and certify that they have taken the necessary steps to protect their part of the supply chain, as we have done ourselves. 

CTPAT Partners enjoy a variety of benefits, including taking an active role in working closer with the U.S. Government in its war against terrorism. As they do this, Partners are able to better identify their own security vulnerabilities and take corrective actions to mitigate risks. Some of the benefits of the program include:

  • Reduced number of CBP examinations
  • Front of the line inspections
  • Shorter wait times at the border
  • Assignment of a Supply Chain Security Specialist to the company
  • Importer eligibility to participate in the Importer Self-Assessment Program (ISA)
  • And more.

For more information on the program, please review the CTPAT webpages: https://www.cbp.gov/border-security/ports-entry/cargo-security/ctpat

Toll Processing Services

Our New Jersey production facility is fully operational! We can clean, mill, re-package, and private label allergen-free seeds and grains. 

Raw material is cleaned in our state-of-the-art Siftex® cleaning system, where we remove foreign material (overs and unders) that could degrade the end product.

We have proprietary developments to Nitro-Mill® whole seeds and grains into flours. This modified atmosphere milling preserves the nutrients and extends the shelf life.

This modified atmosphere packing preserves the nutrients and extends the shelf life organically. Our packaging equipment can accommodate 8 oz through supersack packaging; retail, foodservice, and bulk.

Organic Defatted Chia Flour in Stock

Organic defatted chia flour is back in stock! Packed in 20 KG (44.09 lb) bags. Email us for pricing based on volumes and testing reports! 

The flour is obtained from 100% chia seeds, of Salvia Hispanica, that has had most of the fat removed. The manufacturing of the product takes place under a controlled process by mechanical cold press, preserving the quality of the product.

Chia flour can be used as a nutritional supplement. It has a subtle and slightly nutty flavor. A dosage varies from person to person. Use Chia Flour in a wide variety of gluten-free recipes as 1-to-1 replacement for wheat flours or others flours. Mix in with foods like yogurt, oatmeal or shakes for extra fiber, protein, minerals and antioxidants.

Grains versus Seeds

All grains are seeds, but not all seeds are grains. Beans, nuts, and “seeds” are also all seeds!

By definition, a seed is a “flowering plant’s unit of reproduction, capable of developing into another such plant”. Grains (cereals) grow from the seeds of grasses. Nuts grow from the seeds of trees. And seeds (pseudocereals or other “seeds”) grow from the seeds of non-grasses. 

For example: 

  • Wheat, corn, oats and rice are all seeds, further classified as Grains
  • Amaranth, quinoa, and buckwheat are all seeds, further classified as Pseudocereals
  • Chia, sunflower, sesame, pumpkin are all seeds, classified as Seeds.
