Ben Furney flour mills have implemented a number of certified quality and food safety systems to further enhance our already effective systems and to provide our customers with the confidence third-party accreditation provides for suppliers under their own quality systems.
Department of Agriculture and Water Resources
To enable Ben Furney flour mills to export products overseas we are an export-registered establishment with the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources. Under this certification (Registered Establishment No. 4344) product and premises must comply with the exporter requirements outlined in the Export Control Act 1982.
All production falls under our overall HACCP food safety accreditation, HACCP is an international system which identifies, evaluates, and controls hazards which are significant for food safety by utilising process control technique to provide assurance that food is safe for consumption.
FeedSafe® is a program aimed at increasing the commitment of the Australian stock feed industry to quality assurance and risk mitigation in the manufacture and use of animal feeds. The Stock Feed Manufacturers Council of Australia SFMCA through FeedSafe® has recognised the need for a broader industry approach to feed and food safety and is providing greater security of supply to Australia’s livestock industries. To obtain this certification Feed manufacturers are required to implement HACCP as part of their accreditation which also complements our overall HACCP system, especially as the majority of stock feed produced is a by product of the flour milling process.
