GAC Dubai Contract Logistics Operations Meet ISO 22000:2005 Food Safety Standard
 


Dubai, UAE 22 May 2017 – GAC Dubai’s commitment to quality and food safety has earned it ISO 22000:2005 accreditation. Certification comes after a stringent DNV audit which confirmed the company’s compliance with the internationally recognised standard. 

It builds on the ISO 9001:2015 quality management system implemented across GAC Dubai since 1996, and incorporates the principles of HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) - covering the storage and distribution of perishable food.

Distribution Centre Manager, Richard Potts says, “GAC Dubai’s ability to underwrite its quality systems in support of customers’ supply chains is testament to its commitment to providing consistently high quality and safe services to its customers.”

“Food reaches consumers through supply chains that may link many different companies, stretching across multiple borders,” he adds. “One weak link can result in unsafe food. The consequences can be serious and the cost to food chain suppliers considerable. Stringent control throughout the logistics operations is essential. Food safety is the joint responsibility of all participants in the chain and we take this responsibility very seriously.”

GAC Dubai Contract Logistics’ high hygiene and food safety standards, including batch and date control, are also applied to operations for the pharmaceutical industry, where there is currently no specific ISO accreditation relating to logistics operations.

The team has handled food and beverage storage, distribution and customisation operations for a number of businesses including major importers, blue chip manufacturers and SMEs (Small Medium Enterprises) for many years. In 2015, its facilities were upgraded to better handle high volume food customers.

Presently, GAC Dubai Contract Logistics operates 40,000 pallet storage locations for food and beverage operations in Jebel Ali Free Zone and Dubai Industrial Park, and another 90,000 pallet storage locations dedicated to its pharmaceutical, retail and FMCG client base.
