Food Safety Standards | Kialla Pure Foods

Food Safety Practices

Anyone who works with food has a major responsibility, both legally and morally to ensure that their consumers are protected.

The Food Safety Legislation is all about setting and managing standards so that you can feel full confidence in the methods used to grow and process the grains for your flour, or the soya beans for your tofu.

At Kialla Pure Foods all our staff have a good knowledge of the Food Safety Standards. Everyone is encouraged to pursue additional education and skills in this area so we can continue to improve and monitor our standards.

Batch Numbers and traceability

When all grains and ingredients are received at Kialla Pure Foods, they are given a unique batch number. As each grain or ingredient passes through the different processes, this unique batch number will reflect where it is in the processing line. We call this a line number.

This system allows full traceability from the end product back to the grower. And this is the principle behind our ability to bring you the plate2farm tracker.

Grains may have different certifications (eg: “A”, “In Conversion”, “NOP”) and are therefore segregated in separate silos, clearly marked to show the differing certification.

Before these grains are moved into any of the processing areas, a full and complete clean down of machinery and equipment is completed. This clean down is fully documented, which ensures there is no cross contamination.

 

Testing

All the grain growers for Kialla Pure Foods are certified organic by AQIS accredited bodies. Like Kialla Pure Foods, these growers undergo audits annually to ensure that all their processes and procedures are documented, traceable and compliant with the National Standards.

Kialla Pure Foods has strict procedures for the testing of grains that are received. At the time the grain arrives on site a protein, moisture, Hectare Litre weight and screening test is completed in house. These results let us know immediately if the grain meets our high standards and can be accepted. A further residue test is completed on each type of grain received through the year.

The above measures are only some of the procedures in place to ensure the highest standard of product possible.

 

Facilities, treatment and storage

Kialla has over 7000 tonne of onsite sealed storage with bulk CO2 gas piped to each one for insect control. Post harvest grain is cooled by night aeration for 14 days in silos then fumigated with Carbon Dioxide to a level of 40% for 10 days. This process destroys any pests that may have taken up residence in grain.

Following the milling process product is packaged and stored in a controlled temperature warehouse at 10ºC. Cool rooms are set for a maximum of  17ºC.

. The onsite warehouse can accommodate up to 700 tonne of product with product being dispatched on a daily basis to destinations all over the world.

    We’ve found that Kialla popcorn is the best – it pops so much better than other popcorns, and it tastes great. Our kids love it.

    We’ve been using Kialla’s products for approximately seven years now, making the change to Organic Spelt Flour following the discovery that my son had a wheat and dairy intolerance. I have found that our whole family’s health has improved.

    I truly like the transparency and traceability that Kialla Pure Foods offers. I’m actually able to see which farm grew the wheat milled into my 10kg bag of flour. This really sealed the deal for me. And I feel that Kialla sets themselves apart in this sense.
