Quality Assurance

The quest for quality and a competitive edge for Grower Suppliers and our Domestic and International Buyers is always ongoing to ensure that Midlands Seed products are of the desired international standard, with a quality assurance programme maintaining control at every point along the process.

All testing procedures meet the minimum standard of ISTA and SGS, in addition to those required by the buyer.  As an outward indication of quality, Midlands Seed’s own products are packed in distinctive, coloured packs complete with registered trademark.

Midlands Seed operates a National Programme based on HACCP principles and is Certified to FSANZ (Food safety Australia New Zealand) standards. 

In addition, the company is Organically Certified by Asurequality. Asurequality certification is recognised by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) meaning our Organic products are recognised as certified Organic worldwide. 

Regular contact with both International Buyers and Local Producers is maintained utilising all forms of modern communication.  Midlands Seed staff also spend a large amount of time meeting with clients in their own situations so that we can have a better understanding of their specific needs.

At the National level Midlands Seed is an active member of the New Zealand Grain and Seed Trade Association (NZGSTA), while at the International level is a participating member of the International Seed Federation (ISF).
