Arla Foods receives global food safety standard certification

Arla Foods Bangladesh Limited has recently received the prestigious Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000 (Version 5).

The certification is an internationally accepted certification developed as a recognisable standard against which a food safety management system can be audited and certified, said a press release.

Prior to this certification, Arla Foods Bangladesh’s milk powder packaging facility had already received ISO 9001:2015 in 2019 for maintaining strict quality standards during every step of the packaging process.

The receipt of FSSC 22000 (Version 5) ensured that Arla Foods Bangladesh maintained a comprehensive food safety policy, emergency protocol and evaluation process while adhering to a strict internal audit system.

Arla Foods Bangladesh Managing Director Peter Hallberg said, “The FSSC 22000 certification is a fine testament to our commitment to positively contributing to society through safe and nutritious dairy products. Arla Foods is globally recognised for its responsible behavior, which we are replicating and ensuring future good growth in Bangladesh.”

The packaging facility has been operated by Arla Foods Bangladesh Ltd since 2014 and is located in Konabari, Gazipur. Its portfolio currently includes Dano Power, Dano Growth Shakti and Dano Daily Pushti, providing milk nourishment to almost 1.5 crore Bangladeshi consumers every month.
