Barker Boy Fresh

Barker Boy Fresh

Barker Boy Fresh supplies significant volumes of South Australian pre–prepared and whole produce to clients all over Australia.

Barker Boy Fresh has a variety of customer classification types including aged care and Health care. It also services the food manufacturing sector.

One of the strengths of Barker Boy has been the capability to control the processing of all the vegetables sold. This is a key point of difference between The Company and other food processors. This means that all Barker Boy HACCP protocols are applied to everything that is sold rather than a selected few. In addition it gives The Company a high degree of responsiveness as it is in control and can deal with the occasional late order, or very quickly get to the bottom of a problem. Barker Boy does not get involved in on-selling product over which it has no manufacturing control.

Barker Boy is also able to customize products to suit particular variations. This may occur where the customer has multiple sites. For example Barker Boy can customize pumpkin portions where a particular site requires ‘skin on’ as a variation.

Customer satisfaction is a major KPI for Barker Boy Processing. Delivery and quality reliability are both measured. Barker Boy Processing exceeds 99% reliability. Since January 2005 Barker Boy has linked production directly to ‘order entry’ which has eliminated another layer of potential errors. This was substantiated in subsequent months by accurately measuring the data.

When corrective action has been required, Barker Boy has a same day replacement policy so that there is no variation in process required by our customers. Most occasions where replacement product is required it has arrived before lunch that same day.

Capacity
The combined capacity for the sites at Mt Barker and Cavan exceed 20 tons per day.

Safety Record
The company understands the concerns which its customers have regarding food safety and it looks forward to continually demonstrating to the CCI Group team not mere compliance, but total control of all aspects of procurement, production and distribution.

Commitment to the environment
The company is conscious of its place in the environment and community and has policies, which cover:

The responsible handling of waste (recycling)
Reducing water usage through technology innovation (and unnecessary use)
Improving employment options for the local community (it currently employs over 63 local families)
Supporting local growers (suppliers) wherever possible
