We value the input of our people in analysing Boomaroo’s strengths and weaknesses so that we can further our ability to achieve our business goals. We strive to promote a positive work environment through proactive communications, training and development and we have a strong focus on ensuring that we develop future leaders for our industry.
As well as encouraging our people to engage with growers, suppliers and business partners, we ask them to connect with and support our local communities. Employee volunteering is an integral part of Boomaroo Nurseries’ corporate social responsibility program. Through volunteering, we are able to learn new skills and gain new perspectives, which in turn helps to drive a high performance and innovative culture.

Our people have a wide range of backgrounds and diverse skillsets that contribute to the quality of our products and service.
We also collaborate with universities to employ graduates for our Graduate Program in order to grow the expertise of young people in the industry, supporting both Boomaroo and the industry in general.
Quality Assurance Adviser
With an extensive professional background in food manufacturing and a personal passion for gardening, Boomaroo Nurseries was a natural progression for Jacinda who is still excited to see products in supermarkets that started from a seedling in a Boomaroo nursery.
To ensure the quality and uniformity of Boomaroo’s vegetable seedlings and Greenlife products, it is vital to create consistent processes and procedures. This is where Jacinda’s role comes in as Quality Assurance Advisor.
Jacinda believes it is not only important to create and monitor processes and procedures, but to also ensure that our team fully understands them. This includes recording and reporting. It is important that everyone is using the same methods, but also that individuals understand that their step in the process, no matter how direct or indirect, contributes to the overall quality and uniformity of our products.
Understanding that growers have commitments to fulfil, producing quality and uniform products is paramount to the growers’ success. Jacinda ensures that Boomaroo adheres to the highest standards through HACCP accreditation and ISO certification. HACCP accreditation ensures that food contamination or risk is avoided, and through our ISO certification our processes and procedures are reviewed regularly.
Surrounded by a huge wealth of knowledge at Boomaroo, learning opportunities are endless and Jacinda is excited to expand her skills in horticulture.
