Doha – Qatar: GWC (Q.P.S.C), Qatar’s leading logistics provider, celebrated World Food Safety Day on 7th June 2023 as part of its continuous endeavor to support this important cause.

GWC has always emphasized on very stringent food safety measures and its food safety policy focuses on compliance, training and competency development, communication and a strong food safety culture to ensure customer satisfaction. 

All the processes from receiving, storage, picking, until delivering are performed as per the HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) plan of the organization. With stringent controls in place to inspect each inbound product for temperature, evidence of pest activity, mold growth or physical damage, the company ensures that food is segregated by the date of expiry, and the condition and cleanliness of the pallets used for repalletizing is up to standard. 

“As a logistics and supply chain company, we understand the responsibility we have in ensuring that the food stays fresh and free of contamination at every step of the journey. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates about 600 million cases of foodborne illness each year. This underlines the fact that food can become contaminated at any stage, from production through to transport and storage. Food safety is a shared responsibility; ensuring that it remains safe for consumption, requires a coordinated effort from all parties involved in the supply chain. GWC takes this very serious and through technological advancements and our state-of-the-art facilities we have been able to be pioneers in this field,” remarked Elangovan Rajah QHSSE Director, GWC.

With ISO 22000 certification for Food Safety Management System since 2007, GWC has long been a champion of setting high standards of quality including those for food safety. This dedication to quality in storage and delivery of food consignments has led to it being trusted by retail and food distribution outlets in Qatar.
