Quality Assurance Statements and Objectives

Performance Feeds is committed to being a leading provider of quality liquid feed supplements to the beef, sheep and dairy industries of Australia.

In achieving and maintaining this goal, we recognise that quality relies not only in our product but also in the service that we provide to our customers. In satisfying our customers’ needs we are rewarded by their good will and thus ensuring future prosperity.

We believe that these objectives are best achieved by maintaining a quality management system meeting the requirements of AS/NZS ISO 9001:2008 Quality Systems. This is supplemented by the HACCP Plan developed to ensure food safety.

We also have met the requirements of FeedSafe®, a Quality Assurance Programme for the Australian stock feed manufacturing industry. This certificate recognises that our products are manufactured with quality requirements specified within the Code of Good Manufacturing Practice for the Feed Milling Industry, which has Commonwealth Primary Industries Ministerial Council endorsement.

As part of our Quality Assurance Program, we will continue to:

  • Involve all staff in quality management;
  • Use continual communication and analysis to better understand our customers’ needs;
  • Provide education and training for staff so that they accept responsibility for quality;
  • Continually review all our systems and procedures for opportunities to improve;
  • Seek suppliers who share the same commitment to quality and insist at all times on its unfailing delivery.
