ASCI Site Visit Series | Richgro | WA (1/2 CPD pt)
Richgro Garden Products
As a WA fourth generation family owned business that has been manufacturing premium garden products since 1916, Richgro is now one of the top garden products suppliers in Australia.
Operating out of the Jandakot site there are extensive automated bagging and packing facilities for the manufacture of fertilisers and landscape materials (potting mixes, composts and mulches), along with warehousing facilities from where operations in all other Australian states are serviced. Many of the raw materials consumed during the manufacturing processes are by-products of other external production and hence waste material reuse is a key feature of this business.
Along with the core fertiliser and landscape materials business, Richgro has recently commissioned a state-of-the-art Anaerobic Digestion Plant which turns large volumes of food and beverage waste into methane gas. This methane gas in turn creates electricity which is used to power the entire Richgro site and also returns excess energy to the grid.
The site tour will be conducted by Richgro management, followed by time for questions and general discussion about the business and in-particular the various supply chain processes and issues.
As this is an open air site, please wear closed-in walking shoes or boots (that are likely to get dirty), a hi-visibility shirt, vest or jacket and if the weather is wet bring an umbrella or rain jacket.
