MSM Milling’s Premium Partner Bonus for growers of the specialty high oleic canola variety, Monola*, will deliver a $105/metric tonne Premium for certified growers in acknowledgement of their commitment to sustainability
and food safety.
MSM Milling’s $10/tonne Premium Partner Bonus is in addition to a $95/tonne premium paid to Monola growers, bringing to $105/tonne the premium paid to farmers who grow Monola.
MSM’s General Manager Commercial Charlie Aldersey says the Premium Partner Bonus not only benefits contracted farmers but provides food safety and sustainability assurances to restaurants, food manufacturers and end-users that MSM Milling takes its role as a processor of locally grown, quality non-GM oils extremely seriously.
“We know our farmers grow quality, sustainable and safe crops in an extremely strict regulatory environment. MSM Milling is formalising that acknowledgement and promoting Australia’s high food safety and
sustainability standards to customers here and overseas.”
“The uptake of high oleic oil by food manufacturers means that Australian producers are reducing their reliance on imported, less healthy oils. MSM’s Premium Partner Bonus shows our commitment to farmers and Australia’s clean and green, sustainably grown, produced and processed safe food products,” Mr Aldersey said.
To be eligible for the Premium Partner Bonus, farmers will be required to complete a self-declaration at the commencement of contracting or when they fill in a planting declaration, similar to the scheme used in the EU.
MSM Milling has recently diversified its product range and now offers a range of high quality refined, bleached and deodorised soft oils. For more information, please call MSM Milling in Manildra on 02 6364 5999.
