ABC initiates food safety campaign

BEIRUT, December 4, 2014

ABC, a leading retailer in Lebanon, recently initiated a food safety campaign that included a series of auditing measures conducted on its food and beverage outlets.

For this, ABC collaborated with the Lebanese Association for Food Safety (LAFS) which introduced a comprehensive process to test the quality of food in terms of operations and hygiene, ensuring that all outlets are compliant with world-class standards.

Launched in May by the Lebanese Association for Food Safety (LAFS) affiliated with the American University of Beirut (AUB), the campaign monitored all food and beverage outlets at both ABC Achrafieh and ABC Dbayeh.

It assessed their performance using globally adopted standards including “Good Manufacturing Practices” and “Good Hygiene Practices”, both followed by the Lebanese Standards Institution (Libnor) attached to the Ministry of Industry.

This preventive campaign has also set the conditions and requirements of good practices to be followed in terms of health equipment, food control and food processing. As a result of this initiative, all F& B outlets are food-safe in ABC, complying with the highest food safety and health standards.

In addition to commissioning the Lebanese Association for Food Safety (LAFS) to lead this task force, ABC management also implemented a series of tactical measures including mystery shopper tours carried out by specialized experts, regular inspections, self-monitoring & enforcement activities using a set of guidelines in order to ensure food safety. – TradeArabia News Service
