FDA lauds Kasapreko for manufacturing quality healthy products

The CEO of the Ghana Food and Drugs Authority, Delese Mimi Darko, has presented Kasapreko Company with the certification of HACCP, which extols the brand for its continuous construction and implementation of food safety risk control measures in Africa.

The indigenous beverage manufacturer with an International Standard Organisation (ISO) certificate that produces alcoholic & non-alcoholic products, and is one of Africa’s leading giants, legally meets the requirements and health standards of the Food and Drugs Authority to operate in the manufacturing of assorted beverages.

The HACCP is a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point, known as a system/tool used to identify food safety risks and eliminate or reduce their occurrence or impact to a minimum by instigating critical control measures. Application of HACCP principles cuts through procurement of raw materials to storage, through production to warehousing and distribution of the food product.

The CEO of the Ghana Food and Drugs Authority duly presented the HACCP certificate to the company and its staff who successfully completed the HACCP course

This is, eventfully, the first time the FDA CEO has visited a major industry player for meeting the accurate requirements to operate as a beverage manufacturer and health standards role model.

Kasapreko Company Limited’s outstanding goal is to ensure completely safe food for its consumers, and as a company, it boasts over 26 solid brands.

Mrs. Darko appealed for Kasapreko Company Limited to expand its factories in the country and join government’s One District One Factory initiative.

To emphasise, the Kasapreko Company Limited, on the other hand, doubles up as the only company in the Ghanaian beverage industry with International Standard Organisation (ISO) certification, awarded by the world’s foremost inspection, verification, testing and Certification Company, SGS Ghana.

Finance Director of the Kasapreko Company Limited, Mr. Emmanuel Teiko, described the day as a great one  for Kasapreko Company.

He stated: “Kasapreko Company as a company has come extremely far in the production of food, and the entire goal of the brand is very simple – to ensure that Kasapreko produces products that are safe and not poisonous, which people can consume and take with absolute confidence.

“For us in Kasapreko, we know that implementing the HACCP brings a lot of benefits – and one of the benefits that I will mention is that it protects consumers from food poisoning and foodborne illnesses,” Mr. Emmanuel Teiko affirmed.
