GWC recently renewed its ISO 22000:2005 Food Safety Management System certificates pertaining to its two facilities at the industrial area and added the certification to its 15K Warehouse at the Logistics Village Qatar.
The certification was awarded after an audit was performed at each of these facilities by TÜV SÜD, who presented the certificate to GWC senior director (Commercial Services) Naji Nassar recently.
“Ensuring food safety at all times is a particularly sensitive operation, and requires the best guidelines, standards and the coordination of all the operations of our organisation,” said Nassar.
“Our dedicated quality, health, safety, and environment team ensures that our food storage facilities remain the most reliable in the industry, while keeping a high degree of responsiveness towards our clients’ needs,” he added.
TÜV SÜD performed a stringent review of the three food warehouses’ documents, systems and facilities, reviewing the defined critical control points for receiving, storage, and dispatch operations to demonstrate GWC’s ability to control food safety hazards to ensure customers’ products are safe at all times.
Under specific scrutiny was the company’s Building Management System (BMS) in place within each of these facilities, providing an automated temperature control, with fifteen minute checks recorded by the system and ensuring no deviation from the international standard and in compliance with local regulations.
“The importance of proper food storage and handling procedures is paramount, and directly relates to the human development pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030,” stated GWC Group CEO Ranjeev Menon.
“By certifying our high standard of service, we demonstrate our commitment to supporting Qatar in becoming a sustainable and diverse economy, and remaining the provider of choice in the State of Qatar.”
