Quality Assurance

At Waitaki product quality underpins every decision we make.
It starts with sourcing only the very best natural and sustainable raw materials from carefully selected and qualified suppliers, and carries through transportation, storage, processing, packing and shipping.

Let’s take a look at the critical factors that contribute to Waitaki’s global reputation for product excellence:

Renewable, High quality, Raw Materials
The manufacture of premium nutritional ingredients begins with using only the highest quality raw materials sourced from New Zealand’s pristine natural environment. All raw materials are collected according to New Zealand MPI regulations ensuring they are export eligible and fit for human consumption. All raw materials used by Waitaki in the manufacture of our products are environmentally responsible and renewable.

Licensing
The Waitaki Biosciences manufacturing plant is one of only a handful of multi-licensed meat, marine and shellfish processing facilities in New Zealand. Our purpose built factory operates a New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) registered, approved and independently audited Risk Management Programme (RMP) and complies with EU, USA and other market access regulations for the manufacture of human food grade ingredients.

Traceability
All biological ingredients follow a carefully documented chain from collection of raw materials through to manufacture, transport and arrival at a destination port. Biosecurity is a vital part of the New Zealand economy and is why we lead the way in traceability of animal and marine derived ingredients.
