The Small Scale Food Producers Association (SSFPA) of Iceland

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, and must cancel that type of membership.
