Auspac Ingredients Pty Ltd is an ingredient supplier to the feed milling and affiliated sectors of Australia and New Zealand. The company has distribution alliances with significant global manufacturers of feed additives from around the world including (but not limited to) The United States, Europe, and Asia. In addition to this network, the company purchases ingredients in the open market both domestically and globally.
It is seen as necessary to the further growth of the company that it achieve a quality system considered at least adequate by its customers and stakeholders. The Directors of the business have deemed it appropriate to seek accreditation to the Australian code of practice for Animal Feed Ingredients and additive suppliers as developed by the Feed Ingredients and Additives Association of Australia Inc. (FIAAA) to which we are active members. This quality system will be audited, transparent and will change to accommodate new products, suppliers and challenges.
Whilst Auspac Ingredients Pty Ltd is not a manufacturer, the company is a vital part of the quality process in terms of stockfeed production in the abovementioned market. The company does conduct re-packing operations in addition to its primary function of importing and wholesaling feed additives. As such it can have a pivotal impact on the feed and food safety within the chain. This document is designed to provide specific procedural guidance in terms of daily operations and more general direction in terms of cultural settings for longer term operations.
Whilst Auspac Ingredients has not sought accreditation under the Feedsafe® program, however we meet the regulations and standards of FAMI-QS. We aim to (through the provision of this policy) provide a document seen as complimenting feed manufacturers requirements in terms of their own compliance to quality. In partnership with our customers, we aim to streamline their processes in terms of quality thereby adding value to their production efforts. We are committed to take the necessary actions to preventing feed fraud and adulteration and to setting a framework for reviewing feed safety and quality objectives.
The mantra by which Auspac Ingredients Pty Ltd operates is that of quality and feed safety – quality products and services. It is only through adherence to these factors that we will be able to deliver our goals of “choice, quality and value” and feed safety.
As a service driven organisation, AusPac Ingredients Pty Ltd values the significance of potential risk to stakeholders from poor quality inputs. The company has developed its quality feed safety management system with a key goal being continuous improvement of Feed Safety and Quality, minimization of these risks, traceability of inputs and the recognition of customer and regulatory expectations.
