NON COMPLIANCE, A MAJOR HURDLE IN EXPORTS
Non-compliance with the international food safety standards by the local companies is a significant hurdle in improving exports. This was the upshot of the speakers who addressed the Food Safety Management System Certification award ceremony. They said domestic companies in the food sector could penetrate the global food market by enhancing their compliance with food safety measures.
During the event, the TUV Austria Bureau of Inspection and Certification announced that it has successfully awarded its certifications of ISO 9001 & ISO 22000 to a Pishawar-based company ‘Euro industries (Pvt.) Ltd’ that produces processed meat for local as well as export markets.
It is to be noted that TUV Austria Bureau of Inspection & Certification has already certified the Food Safety Management System of several recognized companies and awarded them ISO 22000, including National Foods Limited, Converters (Pvt) Ltd and Chase International, etc. In addition, the certification company has certified numerous national food companies for ISO 22000, FSSC 22000, Halal, HACCP, and ISO 9001, enabling them to penetrate the international market. Speakers said that only a few food companies are ISO22000, FSSC 22000, Halal, HACCP, and ISO 9001 certified.
Those having these certificates have been able to penetrate the international market. The speakers said food safety and public health are serious concerns across the world and food chain companies.
