2016 Hermitage Plant Science Competition

Posted on 19 March 2016

The annual Hermitage Plant Science Competition has been dedicated to the UN International Year of Pulses in 2016. Blue Ribbon Group is proud to support the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries plant science competition in its 20th year.

Registration is now open for P-12 students to undertake science and art projects that celebrate the unique qualities of pulses and to show how 'My Pulse Rules'.

Such is the enthusiasm for this competition that 109 schools had already registered even before the competition officially opened in January. Agriculture Minister Leanne Donaldson said this is the perfect occasion for students to celebrate and be clever with legumes by entering a national competition.

The wide-ranging project categories will see creative and scientific entries that shine the light on how pulses are feeding the world and enriching the environment.

Blue Ribbon Group and Foods from the Earth are also the primary industry sponsor of the International Year of Pulses campaign in Australia.

HACCP Story Product quality is pivotal to the Blue Ribbon brand.  As such, we have developed a third party audited management system based on HACCP principals.  After conducting a full audit of our product flow path, we have implemented a range of quality assurance measures such as grower declarations, farm liaison officers, an approved supplier program, processing facility auditing, shipment sampling and third party testing of the stock throughout the supply chain. These measures ensure that product is of a quality that our customers expect from the Blue Ribbon brand.

Since the introduction of our HACCP system, we have continued to work on our Quality System and have achieved Certification under SQF Edition 7.2. This system covers all facets of our business including product development, continuity of supply, work instructions, retail packaging and delivery.
