Quality in everything we do
Informed by Six Sigma and Japanese Kaizen systems and methodologies, we invest in processes that continually improve the quality of our products.
See how our embrace of advanced technologies gives you benchmarked quality scores.
Get the most out of your peanuts with our low-tolerance specification limits. By consistently surpassing industry standards we drive quality in every product category.
And when applied at scale, the financial savings of even small improvements can be substantial.
Just 20 mouldy kernels in a 50-kilogram sample result in a positive test for aflatoxin. We control it from the procurement stage and use statistical sampling and a laser sorter to detect and reject almost 80% of affected nuts at the factory. So we only ship quality.
Kernels with internal mould don’t affect aflatoxin levels but taste bitter when roasted. Our X-ray machines and highly sensitive gravity separators identify and remove these nuts.
In a high-speed processing line, removing stones is tricky. But with the right technologies and training, we’re able to clear the lines of even the hardest-to-detect impurities.
For most manufacturers, it’s common for some nuts to split during cleaning, grading, or sorting. At Agrocrops, we get our conveyor speeds and angles just right to minimise impact sites – and cut down on splits.
Our innovative grading tool assesses the upper, middle, and bottom count of our nuts and can separate more than eight grades at a time with a five-count difference per ounce. This delivers better-tasting products with a consistent quality standard.
Our peanut manual covers 360 degrees of each specification, complying with all the relevant global standards.
We handle over 20 global origins of peanuts, and each variety has a different chemical and flavour profile. In-depth knowledge of these characteristics informs the varieties’ ideal use and application.
Our Pnutking benchmark brings together and supersedes every other global peanut quality standard. We take into account physical, chemical, microbiological, toxin, infestation, and radionuclide considerations, leading the way when it comes to quality.
Afla-free is our bespoke benchmark that offers snack food manufacturers peanuts and peanut ingredients that are 100% safe. By challenging current industry expectations, we’re building the future of peanuts.
Our BAF specification focuses on the nutrition requirements of birds and animals for feed applications. We can ensure sustainable supply with a specification that protects quality and meets demand.
Protecting quality isn’t a one-time thing. Our proprietary ‘Peanut Quality System’ allows us to strive ever closer to perfection.
We maintain a detailed crop dashboard packed with global sowing, harvesting, weather, and yield information. With the right market and crop data, you can make the right decision when it comes to quality.
Our in-depth regulatory documentation features country-specific quality guidelines, such as USDA or CODEX standards.
