ZABS commends improved food packaging

Improvement in the quality of food packaging by local companies has been highly praised by the Zambia Bureau of Standards (ZABS).

ZABS Executive Director Manuel Mutale has commended food processors for investing in good quality packaging materials and has urged key players to apply for product certification.

This was uttered during a recent visit to Seba Foods Limited as part of ZABS’ ongoing industry engagement with various companies in the manufacturing sector.

“As you may know poor packaging affects how a product is perceived and leads to a number of problems such as leakage of the product, breakage and sometimes contamination. However, we recognise the efforts of companies such as Seba Foods that have adhered to calls for improved quality,” Manuel stated.

Manel added that previously, products failed to meet the required standards for packaging hence buyers where quite hesitant to purchase products for consumption.

ZABS is open to providing training and consultancy to food processors still faced with trials in packaging materials and is encouraging various food companies to utilise the ZABS packaging materials laboratory.
