THE PADDOCK TO THE PLATE
With the experience of servicing food requirements for over 30,000 meals each
day CSI has the capabilities in food services that truly takes food from the
paddock to the plate.
CSI has a high depth of capability in agriculture, food
production, cooking, storage and servicing that can easily provide a private
sector or government customer with the food service or food retail needs they
Each year almost 120,000 kilograms of fresh beef, 338,000
kilograms of processed vegetables, 1.3 million apples, 1.8 million litres of
fresh milk, 1 million pies and sausage rolls and 1.5 million loaves of bread are
produced by inmates working on farms or in CSI food processing and preparation
business units. CSI also has HACCP Certification, which is world best practice
in food safety in production processes for manufacturers of processed and
packaged food. This isn't just a cost saving for Corrective Services NSW, but
also offers inmates diverse training and employment opportunities in primary
food production and food processing. Inmates participate in agriculture,
hospitality (kitchen operations), food processing and business administration
There are also short courses for inmates in workplace hygiene,
food safety, horticulture, animal care and management. These training and
employment opportunities will continue to expand as CSI's self- sufficiency
initiative grows in the future.
