The Small Scale Food Processor Association (SSFPA)
SSFPA was founded on November 5th 2019 in Hotel Saga in Reykjavík.
Governing Charter - Article 2
A small scale food processor is defined in this governing charter as follows:
A company that at the day of issue of the financial statement does not exceed the limit of at least two of the following three criteria:
Total assets: ISK 100,000,000
Net turnover: ISK 100,000,000
Average number of man-years during the financial year: 10
When two of the above three criteria exceed the threshold,
the party in question can no longer be a full member,

he can apply for associate membership.
