Quality Assurance

Quality1

The Roelcor Group  takes pride in supplying high quality meat products that meets stringent national and international standards, where applicable. From primary and secondary producers throughout the Cape provinces, through processing and the entire supply chain, the Group applies strict measures to ensure quality meat.

Strict Compliance with Health and Safety Regulations

All meat products distributed by the Group meet the stringent requirements necessary for Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Point (HACCP) certification. This certification system controls all critical points for food safety in the plant, requiring that specific safety controls be put in place at each point. This system is fully compliant with the Meat Safety Act and relevant regulations stipulating the adherence to Good Manufacturing Processes in all areas of the plant.

The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) system is a multi-faceted management system, integrating ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 22000 (Food safety), ISO 14001 (Environmental) and OHSAS 18001 operational and safety standards. In order to meet these requirements for accreditation, we implement:

  • High-tech infrastructure to ensure quality, consistency and compliance.
  •  A leading total quality management system to prevent errors during meat processing, implement innovative processing equipment and enhance the training of employees at every level.
  • End-to-end traceability of all products through barcodes and other tracking media, allowing us to identify the precise date and location at which each of our products have moved through the processing and logistics chain.
  • Excellent cold chain logistics through our dedicated transport fleet, where our temperature monitoring system provides an unbroken cold chain. Our own delivery fleet also means that we can offer our customers the benefits of a better turnaround time and ensure continuation of supply. Microbiological testing is also implemented at critical intervals in the supply chain to verify hygiene and safety.

Through these compliances, Roelcor Holdings’ operating subsidiaries take full responsibility for all of its products, ensuring that clients receive goods that are wholesome, healthy, high quality and defect-free.
