The South African Bureau of Standards, or SABS, is a national body established to promote and maintain the standard and quality of products and services available in South Africa.
One of the goals of the SABS is providing a range of standards that cover the demands of the Food & Beverage industry in South Africa. These standards cover everything from the standardisation of quality management systems and manufacturing, to the standardisation of test methods for certain materials or parts.
The implementation of these standards helps organisations such as Multisnack to enhance their rate of customer satisfaction and meet specific reliability, regulatory and safety requirements. This, in turn, ensures the consistent quality of products and services throughout the supply chain.
Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (SANS 10330:2007) is a systematic approach that aims to prevent food safety risks that may cause end products to be unsafe. HACCP is thus aimed towards the prevention of risks during the production process rather than final product inspection. HACCP apply to all stages of the chain of food production, including production, preparation, processing, packaging and distribution.
This certification guarantees that companies analyse, identify and control every potential hazard throughout each stage in the chain of food production, and that they do so at regular intervals to ensure the safety of their products for human consumption.
The National Independent Halaal Trust, or NIHT, is an institution that sets out to maintain the highest Halaal standards. The standards the NIHT oversees adheres to those prescribed by the Sharia (Islamic Law). These standards were determined by Mufti’s and various Ulema across the Islamic ideological spectrum, ensuring peace of mind for Islamic people across South Africa.
