Five years running!

by admin on November 15, 2013

Ramm Botanicals has won NGINA’s Best Propagation Nursery award for the 5th year running. The award now puts us in the running for the national title which involves a separate round of on-site judging. The national winner is announced at NGIA’s conference in March to be held at Darling Harbour.
Ramm Botanicals is a NIASA-accredited and EcoHort certified nursery that currently employs close to 80 staff, most of whom are involved in direct production, whether that be in our tissue culture laboratory or young plant nursery. The company distributes Australia-wide and also provides marketing support for its many wholesale growers.
“We’ve been photo-finished out of the national win for these last five years” says Sales Director, Ryan Weber (pictured left of frame). “I think we could get up this time around but, if we don’t, we’ll be happy so long as our customers and staff are happy”.
The combination of high standard production protocols, excellent record keeping and continual improvement are the things that must be in place to receive such accolades. These principles are very much enshrined in the industry’s national accreditation program (NIASA) and supported by the environmental standard, EcoHort, and biosecurity standard called BioSecure HACCP. Ramm Botanicals looks likely to be the first nursery in NSW to achieve BioSecure HACCP certification.
