Pictured, Matthijs Spiering (Director) and Paul Njuguna (FSSC team leader) received on behalf of Zeelandia East Africa the FSSC Certificate in the presence of Benson Githae (Certification Manager) of Bureau Veritas.

Zeelandia East Africa commenced the process of food safety certification back in April 2019.

This was as a result of customer enquiries on our food safety status, and regulatory requirements by our standard body for all companies to using their standard marks to have some sort of food safety certification.

We settled on FSSC-22000:2018 being the most updated and which also aligned with our food safety needs.

We now have a food safety management team which overseas the implementation process of the food safety system that cuts across  all departments.

Our food safety is managed , by a set of SOPS{STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE} PPRs{Pre=requisite programs} ,a food defence system and an elaborate customer complaint management system and effective Quality control system.

Management review of the process is also key to the successful implementation of the process.


The certification process saw us undergo a set of audits.

The audit was carried out in two phases by a global certifying body Bureau Veritas who also have their centre in Nairobi.

  1. Stage 1 audit carried out in July 06/2020. Several observations were made which comprised about  16 action  points to be closed before main audit.
  2. Stage 2 audit carried out on July 28-30/2020:Four minor non conformities were raised and which we closed effectively.

Through the coordination and time put in by the  Zeelandia East Africa's Food Safety management team, we are proud to state that we are now FSSC - 22000:2018 certified.
