SealesWinslow mills receive quality stamp

SealesWinslow mills receive quality stamp

SealesWinslow has attained FeedSafeNZ accreditation across all of its mills, recognising the high quality of the animal feed products they make.

FeedSafeNZ is a quality stamp from the New Zealand Feed Manufacturers Association (NZFMA) for manufacturers and blenders, designed to enhance the quality assurance of stockfeed.

SealesWinslow Nutrition and Quality Manager, Wendy Morgan, says FeedSafeNZ provides customers with the confidence that feed products are safe and have been produced in a manufacturing plant which is regularly audited. “We care about quality because we know that our customers want optimum results from their livestock and superior products for them,” says Wendy.

“Farmers are increasingly becoming aware of the risks associated with poor feed quality. They appreciate the peace of mind that FeedSafeNZ affords. It’s gaining a lot of traction and is an important differentiator,” she says.

Feed produced at all three SealesWinslow mills, in Wanganui, Morrinsville and Ashburton, is available from rural merchants including PGG Wrightson, Ashburton Trading Society, Farm Source, Farmlands, as well as selected Ballance service centres.
