Our Supply Chain
Our Supply Chain
Our vertically integrated supply chain means we can control the quality of our products at every stage of production. Allowing us to have complete traceability from the planted seed, right through to the final product.
From the Planted Seed
Midlands produces and supplies quality conventional and organic oil seeds both our own processing and for export to global markets. The majority of our oil seeds, including Hemp Seed, Flaxseed and Evening Primrose, are grown under contract in the Canterbury region, which has a unique soil and climate combination producing some of the world’s finest specialty oils and health food ingredients.
The majority of our oil seeds, including Hemp Seed, Flaxseed and Evening Primrose, are grown under contract in the Canterbury region, which has a unique soil and climate combination producing some of the world’s finest specialty oils. All seed production is undertaken by our sister company Midlands Seed, meaning we can ensure the best practice is followed on farms, with a resultant guarantee of quality seed going into the our presses.
To Extracting our Oil
Midlands oversees the seed production process, providing full traceability from farm to the consumer. Once our crops are harvested, our seed is dressed and carefully transported to our extraction facility. All product produced is tested to ensure it is of the highest purity and quality standard.
Our purpose built facility is produces the finest oils to globally recognised standards. This 4500sq foot factory has an enclosed seed pressing room, which excludes light so that delicate seed oils are not exposed to damaging ultraviolet light. The thick concrete walls make stable temperature control simple, which again is vital for maintaining oil quality.
Then high quality Plant Based Superfoods Production
We produce more than just oils, with a range of natural, healthy and nutritious plant-based superfoods in a variety of packaging options. After we have finishing extracting our oil, we change gears to produce our superfoods range. With an extensive list of Hemp and Flaxseed products, we also offer other Plant-based Superfoods such as Grass Powder, Chia Seed and Quinoa.
We provide contract manufacturing options offering you packaging formats from 1.5 gm to 5 kg in high-quality food grade packaging materials including pre-printed film, pouches and canisters, with bulk orders are available in packaging up to 1 tonne.
If we don’t quite have what you are looking for, or you want to bring a new product to market, we have the capability to blend health food ingredients to meet your requirements to meet your nutritional specifications.
Cold Storage Facilities to Deliver Freshness
We are committed to quality. We take care of our products at every stage, including an onsite Cold Storage facility to optimise product quality and the freshness of both inward and outward raw materials. This controlled environment ensures that the best quality product is dispatched before it is transported by sister company Midlands Contracting to port for export, preserving the integrity and quality of all our natural products.
