Balco is the first major Australian hay processor to achieve HACCP accreditation. Attaining this highly regarded food safety certification ensures that best-in-class systems are in place to produce high quality products for the international market.
Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) is risk management methodology used by the food and related industries for the control of food safety hazards to acceptable risk levels.
HACCP is important because it prioritizes and controls potential hazards in food production. By controlling major food risk, such as microbiological, chemical and physical contaminants, Balco customers can be assured that the products they receive are safe. Balco Australia have undergone a significant review of all production facilities and processes to analyse hazards; resulting in the implementation of robust Quality Assurance systems and procedures.
HACCP requires Balco Australia to be routinely audited by an external certification body to ensure that our systems and processes not only comply with the strict requirements of the HACCP standard; but also continues to provide us with every opportunity to improve our levels of service and performance in the supply of safe, quality products.
