Traceability

Nurtured by passionate organic farmers in New Zealand’s pristine environment

trace

Here is an example of the sequence of steps that integrate together to form our GreenMonkey™ pouch system which enables our “Paddock to Pouch” traceability status. This is a product feature we are very proud to have achieved, to the best of our knowledge, we are the first baby food brand to attain such a standard in the world and we continue to stand out as unique in this regard.  

100% Pure Traceable Certified Organic - ASUREQUALITY NZ0480, (IFOAM Accredited). Personally selected organic farmers nurture our produce, ensure our baby food is grown sustainably and supply premium quality crops and meat. Being local we know that all of our farmers fully comply with a strict regime of annual organic audits. Born in New Zealand!

All our ingredients are sourced locally within New Zealand with no exceptions. New Zealand is widely recognised for its “clean and green” environment and “natural” growing conditions. We have total “Traceability” of produce from “Paddock to Pouch” ensuring that we always know where our baby food has come from. All meats used for GreenMonkey™ baby foods are sourced from free range New Zealand farms. Our animals are grass-fed. There are no cages, no pens, only open pasture.

Unlike many other baby food brands our list of ingredients always adds up to 100%. With no additives or preservatives you can have total confidence in feeding your baby. The natural goodness and quality of wholesome organic ingredients delivers babies ultra-safe organic food as nature intended them to eat, making GreenMonkey™ ideal for children with food allergies.

Our freight providers collect our custom grown produce and carefully deliver it to our pre-processing division for optimal preparation of our ingredients for manufacture.  

GreenMonkey™ is the only baby food in the world who guarantees NO Chinese or South American pulps in our baby food. Pretty important we think.

Paddock to Pouch

Here are the sequence of steps that integrate together to form our GreenMonkey™ pouch system which enables our “Paddock to Pouch” traceability status. This is a product feature we are very proud to have achieved given, to the best of our knowledge, we are the first baby food brand to attain such a standard in the world and we continue to stand out as unique in this regard.

 

Farm

We personally select our fully certified organic New Zealand farmers to nurture our produce and animals. This ensures we use only the best crops and meat in our super-premium baby foods. Using local farms enables full traceability from ‘paddock to pouch’ which sets us apart from other brands.

 

Pick-up

Our freight providers collect our custom grown produce and carefully deliver it to our pre-processing division for optimal preparation of our ingredients for manufacture.

 

Processing

Our base ingredients are processed according to specific recipes and specifications, in our world-class export grade facility. This factory has organic certification status with internationally recognised ASUREQUALITY NZ 0480.

 

Cooking

We pre-cook the baby food prior to filling, then use a ‘state of the art’ food processing technique called ‘Advanced Thermal Process’ which cooks the food further within the pouch. This process both seals in the fresh flavours and guarantees food safety.

 

Filling

Our high tech multi-layer pouch is auto-filled with industry standard equipment. It is designed to handle high cooking temperatures. The plastic pouch allows full metal detection post filling for increased safety. This is also the step where a unique batch code is stamped onto the pouch – in effect a traceability code that links the ingredients contained within back to the original farm source.

 

Safety

We have an accredited HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point) food safety programme. The methodical cooking process, 100% metal detection post filling and manual packing with visual quality control are just some of the many safety features we employ, to ensure we attain world-class food safety standards.

 

Packing

After the second cooking process our pouches are manually packed within our ‘Eco’ display cartons in batches of twelve, with six of these cartons placed into a larger shipper. We have carefully designed our packing configuration to adequately protect our pouches for gentle delivery throughout the globe.

Shipping

When exporting our baby food around the world, we prefer to use seafreight rather than airfreight to reduce our carbon footprint in alignment with our environmental ethos.
