Recent investments in new discharge equipment (cranes, hoppers, loaders), modern TASCC approved quayside storage, fully automated weighbridge platforms, qualified staff with wast experience and nearby dual carriageway will guarantee quick turnaround, sufficient storage, and safe discharge for all our existing and potential partners.
All of our animal feed stores are TASCC approved. TASCC was developed because farmers and end users wanted to be sure that crops of grain, oilseeds and pulses were treated responsibly once they left the farm. That includes wheat processed by flour millers and malting barley for the brewers and distillers in the drinks industry. It provides independent verification that the trade is meeting food safety laws
