Rooibos Processing & Packing
To supply excellent quality rooibos, you can rely on our team to get the processing, packing and export of your rooibos tea just right!
Rooibos Processing & Quality Assurance
Bulk rooibos orders are screened, sifted, blended and steam-pasteurised according to client’s needs. All processing orders are governed by strict FSSC 22000 protocols and supporting documentation for all processes is maintained to ensure traceability.
Every bulk batch is independently tested by the PPECB (Perishable Products Export Control Board of the Department of Agriculture) to ensure that it complies with food-safety, food export, and phytosanitary standards. Each shipment is issued with a COA (Certificate of Analysis).
Following final processing, orders are subject to testing to ensure they meet both client specifications and strict quality standards.
An independent Quality Assurance Manager monitors processes and critical control points during processing and packaging. During the production process, laboratory tests are conducted to check microbiological content (e.g. moulds & bacteria) and to guarantee that your final product will be certified as a hygienic, safe, and superior quality.
Bulk rooibos export packaging
Final product is packed into double-layered 18kg paper bags, labelled to agreed specifications. Each pallet is packed with 50 labelled bags and shrink-wrapped.
Orders ranging from single pallets up to 20-foot (9,000kg) and 40-foot (18,000 kg) containers are shipped in dedicated containers, or LCL for orders not matching these volumes.
