Commenting on the Ghana-first FMCG to receive FSSC version 6 recognition, the Managing Director (MD) of PGH, Festus Tettey said the certification is a testament of PGH’s devotion to improved food processes and controls.

“As a formidable business in its 25th year of operation, the certification reinforces our efforts at continuously improving our product quality, validates our excellent operating standards, adoption of world-class standards and our reputation for integrity, professionalism, excellence and accountability.”

The PGH MD added: “We are proud to be the first Ghanaian business to be certified to FSSC V6 by SGS in Ghana and we pledge to improve continuously.”

Explaining why PGH opted for FSSC V6, Bernadette Klu, Head of Quality, Safety, Health & Environment (QSHE) at PGH said FSSC v6 offers a globally affirmed, comprehensive approach to food safety.

She highlighted that “food safety is fundamental to Promasidor Ghana’s commitment to providing our local and global consumers with ‘Quality Food Products’ in line with our values of Customer focus, Respect for all and the environment, Excellence in execution, Support for each other and Trust.”

Ms. Klu said this feat lends credence to the authenticity of PGH’s consumer-centric drive to assure the delivery of unparalleled Quality and Food Safety throughout the manufacturing and supply chain; a clear marker of leadership within the food and beverage space of the FMCG fraternity.

Kwasi Okai-Mensah, SGS Ghana’s Business Assurance Manager commended PGH for successfully reaching the end of a long journey for getting certified for the enviable FSSC 22000 V6.

“As the first FMCG in Ghana to be certified to FSCC 22000 V6, this historic achievement would not have been possible without your stern resolve to be customer focused and consistently supply your customers with nothing but safe and quality products.” Promasidor Ghana Limited (PGH) is a leading food manufacturing company providing quality food products to consumers.
