As an advocate of quality, which in a nutshell means that we exist to meet the needs of our customers, SRC is committed to fulfilling its mandate to assisting the agro-industrial, health and other sectors. Through our highly qualified and experienced team of certified experts, SRC is able to offer consultancy services to companies who are customer focused and who have a business strategy of operating at international standards. We assist these companies in meeting the requirements of the ISO standard for quality management systems (QMS) as well as the requirements for food safety systems such as Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) and prerequisite programmes such as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
Our consultants assess companies and identify gaps in their business operations in relation to these international requirements. Such assessments enable companies to determine the current status of their business and food safety processes and to develop actions for closing the identified gaps.
Our consultants also provide training in the following:
- Waste management
- Tissue culture technology.
Our food processing courses are NCTVET certified and include: meat processing, sauce processing, canning, and the production of jams, jellies and natural juices. Other training programmes include: preparation of personal care products, and operation and maintenance of anaerobic wastewater treatment systems. As a complement to the training programmes in GMP and HACCP, the SRC has developed and offer training videos to assist companies in meeting the requirements of the relevant food safety standards and laws.
The management system of the SRC has been certified to the ISO 9001 international standard since October 2007. We are currently certified to the new version of the standard, ISO 9001:2015. In addition, the competencies of our analytical and microbiological laboratories are accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 international standard since 2010.
Assessment and evaluation of our supply chain allow us to mitigate associated risks of non-conformance within that chain and to ensure timely delivery of supplies meeting specifications and reducing turnaround times.
We are focused on satisfying customers and improving our efficiencies.
