Business ReporterMilk producer Alpha Omega is currently seeking to attain International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) certification before the end of the year as part of efforts to enhance its operations. Speaking during a recent tour of the company’s dairy plant in Mazowe by retailers, the company’s general manager, Mr Stanley Nhari, said the firm had applied for ISO certification in order to ensure that their product matches international standards.
“Being ISO certified is now an international norm and so we are seeking to have our plant and products ISO certified. The process will be conducted gradually as it takes time to meet perfection.
“We do not compromise on quality and this can be noted on the way we handle all levels of production. Our cows are kept under shed at all times under zero grazing and have neck tags that share signals with antennas placed around the farm that measure brain activity and detect infections.
“We have control over every aspect of the cows as every process is automated with the latest internationally recommended dairy infrastructure. Our aim is to minimise compromising our raw milk and our end products; hence, the presence of an advanced lab inside our plant that ensures the dairy products match our standards,” explained Mr Nhari. It is believed that Alpha Omega’s investment in the state-of-the-art equipment has positioned it as one of the best in the region.
TM-Pick ’n Pay chief executive officer Mr Bisset Chimhini said the company was impressed by the brand.
