Certification and Accreditation

back to the coop

When it comes to food, personal taste may be subjective, however, there really is no compromise when it comes to safety and quality. At M&J Chickens, we aim to deliver poultry of the safest and highest quality to our clientele – every single time.

As such, we have implemented ISO 9001:2015, an internationally-recognised quality system, to ensure we’re always meeting these goals. This certification is administered by SGS – the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company. In addition, we are audited every 6 months by the State Food Authority, which not only verifies that M&J Chickens complies with all Federal and State regulations, but on behalf of the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, audits us for Export Accreditation (Establishment 200 and 228) – a certification that puts us above the rest and something we are incredibly proud to have earned. In alignment with the cultural values that M&J Chickens espouses, our produce is also HALAL Registered and 100% hormone-free to ensure we reach international markets without limitations.

Similarly, to maintain the high levels of Quality and Food Safety, our raw material and ingredients – from retrieval, processing, cooking, and all the way through to dispatch, have been risk-assessed using HACCP assessment tools. Batch numbers of all products and ingredients are recorded to ensure traceability and we maintain a full recall system – a system we test annually with a mock recall.

Critical Control Points, otherwise known as CCPs have also been established. Included in the CCPs is temperature-control, which we maintain with real-time monitoring in all of our cool-rooms, freezers, and delivery vehicles.

Moreover, to ensure we’re keeping up-to-date with the latest technology, we have significant investment in computer-controlled cutting machines (literally “cutting-edge” technology), check-weighers and x-ray detection systems.

So, if you’re in the market for a food supplier that adheres to the highest standards of quality without the restrictions of proximity, get in touch with a customer service representative at 1300 262 365 or info@mandjchickens.com.au
