Food Lover’s Market in Maerua Mall last week received its Seal of Quality from the Meatboard, certifying this popular deli for the quality of the meat it sells.

The Meatboard’s manager of meat standards, Dr. Anja Boshoff de Witt said that Food Lovers Market Maerua Mall had met all the criteria to qualify for the certification. “The requirements for the Seal of Quality are very strict and include for example design and maintenance of facilities and equipment, hygienic handling of the product, but more importantly the protocols and controls in place to implement quality management. This means that all protocols to maintain a high standard of hygiene are implemented and efficacy of such protocols are verified. Corrective actions in the event of deviance are also looked at.”
Marius Brundyn, General Manager, Fresher Packers Namibia, expressed his delight with the certification by the Meatboard saying “We place the highest value on quality and hygiene with all our products, without compromising our competitive prices. For us the customers and their satisfaction are key and we therefore adhere to the strictest specifications with all our products, but especially meat. We are proud that we can now put the Meatboard Seal of Quality on all our red meat products.”
