It is the policy of Bartlet Eggs to view the quality and food safety of our eggs during grading, packing and distribution holistically and not as a stand-alone entity, incorporating all aspects impacting on the food chain.
We fully believe in order to achieve consistent and continual food safety, total quality must be a culture within our management systems. In order to achieve this goal, Bartlet Eggs has established a system which encompasses and embraces a farm to fork vision which also considers the following:
- Maintaining high standards of farm practices from rearing to laying farms
- High standards of food safety practices at the packing stations to ensure the best quality product for our customers.
- Supply of feed from our own feed mills, which have been formulated to the highest standards within the industry and manufactured under strict quality controlled conditions. Each mill follows the same quality system established for the group and are all approved by AFMA (Animal Feed Manufacturer’s Association)
- Strong sales and distribution teams to ensure one-on-one customer relations within both retail customers and consumers.
