Quality systems and process start in the field and continue through harvesting, product receival, baling, packaging and transportation. From the Balco Field Team working with the grower from preparing the paddock through continuous paddock inspections throughout each season, Balco ensure the hay is free from contamination. Balco's continuous grower education program is also critical to the continuous improvement of the hay industry.
Balco has implemented industry leading technology from unique barcoded for each bale through to visual scanning technology designed specifically to accurately measure the visual characteristics in export hay.
Balco is also the first major hay company in Australia to implement the international food standard HACCP throughout the entire production process.
