19 December 2023
Auscitrus thrives on crafting premium citrus in style, blending safety and excellence seamlessly.
Across Australia, they're the go-to for top-tier citrus propagation materials, adhering to high standards of health, type authenticity, and disease testing. Their secret? embracing efficient and sustainable methods, they stay competitive and secured their Nursery Industry Accreditation.
Located in Dareton, New South Wales, Auscitrus emphasises quality by employing four full-time staff and seasonal workers. Their commitment is not just about meeting industry standards but surpassing them. This dedication led them to pursue the Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme Australia (NIASA) in 2007, establishing stringent practices for processing and production.
From day one, NIASA certification has elevated Auscitrus’ operational standards significantly, implemented from the nursery's construction. Think regular water quality checks, safe work requirements, and a meticulous pest and disease management routine. The guidance from Greenlife Industry Australia has been helpful in introducing innovative technologies and ensuring their suitability, along with providing ongoing support.
NIASA certification isn't just a badge; it's a testament to Auscitrus' commitment to excellence. Auscitrus firmly believes in maintaining the highest standards possible to stay competitive and respected.
Next on Auscitrus' agenda? Teaming up even closer with NIASA to set the bar higher with disease-tested budwood. Their vision? To continue developing systems and facilities in line with best practices to ensure longevity within their community.
