Quality Ethos

Storage - Highland GrainAll Members of Highland Grain are required to be fully approved under either of the Scottish Quality Crops or Red Tractor farm assurance schemes. All procedures are in place and documented for grain collection from farms, through intake and handling at the plant, and finally to our customers. These procedures received official accreditation to the Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops in early 1999, and this accreditation has been confirmed annually thereafter.  This ensures complete traceability from crop production through first process at Highland Grain.  This complete traceability and analysis is provided to all customers, as required.

Highland Grain Ltd has also operated its ISO9001 quality systems since 1998, which supports its delivery of a high quality product to customer contract specification.

Highland Grain Ltd is very conscious of its environmental obligations and since 2000 has held an operating certificate under the Environmental Management system, ISO 14001, which is continually reviewed and updated to employ any worthwhile initiatives to help preserve our unique environment.

The Moray Firth is a particularly attractive area with the soft, fertile land near the coast merging rapidly with the cooler uplands and the higher, exposed hills within a few miles. This gives rise to a unique environment, supporting a wide range of animal, bird and plant species. The farmers in the Moray Firth have always been excellent guardians of their environment with, in particular, very high bird populations being recorded in many areas, especially on the Black Isle.
