As testament to our commitment to producing and supplying the highest quality feed to our customers and achieving the highest quality standards in feed manufacturing, we have a dedicated quality assurance team. Our quality team monitors every aspect of production and our production of animal feed is based on the principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Plan (HACCP). This includes raw material intake, haulage, production, following right through to dispatch and customer service.
Ongoing investment in milling technology is seen as a key driver of the business, enabling production efficiencies and a higher standard finished product. Brett Brothers has its own onsite laboratory with a Near Infra Red (NIR) machine which can instantly analyse all raw materials coming into the mill or any finished product leaving the mill. We also work with a range of fully accredited laboratories for specialized independent testing.
Bretts attach great importance to official recognition and accreditation under professional industry recognised Quality Schemes, and we are proud that our mill in Callan is certified by the Department of Agriculture, Irish Grain Assurance Scheme (IGAS) and under the prestigious Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS).
Accreditation to these schemes provides reassurance on quality and traceability to the farmer, and also further along the food chain to the consumer and strengthens the links in the chain from field to fork.
Bretts have a long-standing tradition of sourcing native Irish grain from the farmers of counties Kilkenny, Tipperary, Wexford and Waterford. Our Agronomist works closely with local tillage farmers to ensure that the wheat, barley and oats that are used in our range of feeds is produced to the highest standard.
We have invested in dedicated grain storage and grain handling facilities to ensure that the grain is stored in optimum conditions.
