There is growing demand from markets for certified organic products. We are accredited as an organic processor under the BioGro programme, to IFOAM standard.
We process organically grown wool to the Bio Gro standard, which requires full traceability of product, clear processes to ensure product separation, and the use of approved inputs for the scouring process.
We have also just become accredited to produce certified organic woolgrease under the Bio Gro health and bodycare standard.
Cavalier Woolscourers also has accreditation under GOTS 4.0, Global Organic Textile Standard.
This accreditation has been requested from specific scouring customers that require GOTS accreditation in order to deliver certified organic product into specific markets.
Cavalier Woolscourers operates large industrial wool scouring sites. Health and Safety is a major focus for the business.
Accreditation in the ACC WSMP programme ensures best practice principles are implemented across Health and Safety Management.
We are accredited to the highest level (tertiary) the programme offers.
As part of the continuous improvement that we pride ourselves on, management and staff from both Hawkes Bay and Timaru sites have been undertaking a Leadership Development course through Staples Rodway.
