A wholly owned subsidiary of AUS-MEAT, AUS-QUAL is a certification body accredited by JAS-ANZ.
- conformity assessment services for quality management and food safety (HACCP) management systems; and
- Product Certification Systems for the wider Australian and New Zealand agricultural, horticultural and secondary processing sectors.
While AUS-MEAT has provided services to the meat and livestock industry since 1987, in the early 1990s the company adopted a business diversification and growth strategy that includes involvement in a range of programs in the agricultural, horticultural and food processing Industries.
AUS-QUAL is one aspect of this strategy. The company has been able to draw on its extensive experience with Quality Management and Certification Programs to provide these services to more diverse industry sectors. This has in turn provided further opportunities for growth and new business initiatives.
