The Gulf Warehousing Company (GWC), one of the fastest-growing logistics businesses in the Middle East and North Africa region, recently celebrated World Food Safety Day 2024.

“As the leading logistics and cold chain provider in Qatar, GWC continues to provide end-to-end logistics support for food imports,” said GWC Group chief executive Ranjeev Menon. “This includes sampling and inspection as per MoPH (Ministry of Public Health) procedures, customs clearance, cold chamber warehousing, and distribution to end-use destinations."

Highlighting that it has a strict system for monitoring the safety of food in storage and during transit using enhanced systems, he said that the GWC’s warehousing and logistics services align with Qatar’s food security and safety guidelines, countering any threats to food security.

The GWC's Safety Observation Reporting System empowers employees to prevent, detect, and manage foodborne risks, contributing to food security, human health, economic prosperity, agriculture, market access, and sustainable development.

"This underscores that the GWC holds quality, health, safety, security, and environment as its biggest priority, and nowhere is that more fundamental than when dealing with food stores and supplies,” he said.

With ISO 22000:2018 certification for Food Safety Management System since 2007, the GWC has a sophisticated cold chain mechanism that enables safe and hygienic on-ground movement of various types of food items, in addition to developing a food safety plan for all stakeholders involved in the supply chain.
