Laboratories

Quality Assured

Our Quality Assurance harvest laboratories are located at Gladstone, Port Kembla, Geelong and Toowoomba, and provide support to our receival sites and port terminals on the east coast of Australia.

Testing activities at these sites are certified to ISO 9001:2015 standards. Toowoomba also holds a National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accreditation for compliance with ISO/IEC 17025 for a range of tests. The laboratories regularly participate in national proficiency testing schemes.

GrainCorp is also accredited under the Grain and Feed Trade Association (GAFTA) approved analysis scheme for the provision of GAFTA certificates.

Quality Assurance for Export Customers

Our laboratories help manage quality risks, expectations and requirements for our export customers, creating a seamless process from export nomination to the loading and quality certification of a vessel.

The services include a risk assessment of Australian and overseas regulatory requirements, cargo quality and stock selection and sample management.

GrainCorp’s seven port terminals are serviced by laboratories located onsite and the site’s testing activities are accredited under AS/NZS ISO 9001:2015 and ISTA Seed Sampling.

These laboratories are equipped with automated sampling systems and trade-certified testing equipment for quality analysis during cargo accumulation and loading, to ensure customer requirements are met.
