We grow the 3 most popular varieties of almonds in the market place. They are Nonpareil, Carmel and Price. Our almonds are sized in accordance with international sizes which range from 18/20 through to 35+.

We also offer a second grade product which we classify as 'Broken'. This product consists of any almond that is scratched, marked or chipped. Due to our high standard of sorting this product is of a very good quality and often gets overlooked as "A" grade product!

As we do not source almonds from any other orchard but our own, we are able to provide our customers with a product that does not vary in appearance, taste or quality from carton to carton.

This has been such an advantage to our current customer base, as whether almonds are purchased for on- selling, value-adding or manufacturing, they know with each carton they open, they will be presented with the same superior” A” grade product time and time again.

almondsPassion for Quality

haccpFor over a decade our business has conducted an annual audit with SGS - a Internationally recognised body who thoroughly checks all aspects of the Growing, Processing and Packing of Almonds . Our procedures must comply in accordance with HACCP (Health Analysis Critical Point) requirements.

An audit takes place near commencement of the packing process. A random sample of Almonds is taken by an independent person eg. an agronomist. It is packed, sealed, dated and signed by this individual and is sent to IMVS Food and Environmental Laboratory in Adelaide where the almonds are tested for Salmonella Ecolli Aflotoxins and Chemical Residues. Results are sent back to us and are sighted, initialled and dated by the auditor.

Internal audits are also conducted, which include such things as keeping a record of all procedures that take place in the everyday running of the properties. This may include the receival of goods to the recording of a spray diary. This diary is a detailed report of what is administered to the orchard for its healthy wellbeing, and a beneficial report for future reference.

Upon satisfactorily completing the audits specifications a report is written by the auditor and a certificate is issued. All written reports by the auditor reveal commendable outcomes consistently.

Here at Belehris Estates, we are dedicated in offering a high quality and highly nutritional product that differs from the ordinary.
