Qatar-based catering company Newrest has released a safety and hygiene label called "SAFE by Newrest".
"The company is introducing its own internal safety and hygiene standards," Newrest said. "Each production facility or division will receive appropriate labeling after review of the results of its work by auditors of the QHSE Group, specializing in health, safety and environmental safety."
The innovation allows an assessment of the procedures and preventive measures introduced by Newrest to resume or continue operations in safe sanitary conditions.
The SAFE by Newrest label is viewed by the company as an additional guarantee to employees, customers and consumers that all the necessary sanitary measures have been taken to produce and deliver quality and safe food.
The new regulations have been passed after Newrest South Africa announced it was working with Air France. The French airline's catering services are now extended to Johannesburg and Cape Town airports.
