AFFIRMATIVE ACTION COMPLAINCE CERTIFICATE
The SEAL OF QUALITY is a voluntary quality and hygiene certification programme developed by the Meat Board of Namibia with the aim to ensure the purchasing of safe and wholesome red meat and red meat products by consumers and customers at participating butcheries and retail red meat outlets.
The SEAL OF QUALITY strives to support the Namibian red meat industry and opposes the unfair trade of red meat and red meat products from foreign sources and informal slaughtering. The application of the SEAL OF QUALITY logo will stimulate trust in the quality and hygiene of red meat and red meat products sold in Namibian butcheries and red meat retail outlets.
Participating red meat and red meat product outlets in Namibia implement very high hygiene standards and source red meat from reputable sources. Consumers purchasing red meat and red meat products at certified outlets can be rest assured of the quality and hygiene of the product.
Red meat and red meat product outlets wanting to participate in the Seal of Quality Scheme have to comply with the Seal of Quality Standard as developed by the Meat Board and undergo intensive inspections prior to certification. Annual self-audits are required and ad-hoc audits are conducted by the Meat Board for maintenance of Seal of Quality Certification.
