Why purchase your lime from a Grolime producer?
When buying your agricultural lime, you should always buy from a registered Grolime producer. All Grolime producers are committed to the highest standards of production and quality control. Currently all Grolime producers are members of the Ground Limestone Producers Association of Ireland (GLPAI). In addition, all members of the GLPAI are licensed by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine to market their agricultural lime in Ireland. The GLPAI engages regularly with the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine to ensure that all of its members are fully up to date with developments in relation to regulation, enforcement, research and liming advice. In addition, Grolime producers have also voluntarily agreed to have their production locations independently audited by an accredited laboratory on a twice yearly basis for compliance with regulatory standards.
This testing requirement is implemented by unannounced visits by the independent laboratory to each location where samples are taken and tested for total Neutralizing Value (TNV) and grading requirements. Any producer that does not meet the TNV and grading requirements outlined in national legislation will have their entitlement to use the Grolime trademark withdrawn.
