International symbol of trust and safety
Savushkin Produkt brand soon to enter Western markets
By Artem Andreev
On June 24th, the Brest company gained two certificates confirming compliance with safety standard FSSC 22,000, allowing its products to be sold in the EU. The enterprise’s Brest and Pinsk factories process milk, sour cream, yoghurt, kefir, quark, semi-solid cheeses, dried curdled milk, dessert quark and butter.
The Director General, Alexander Savchits, notes that the first production-run certificated to meet international standards is destined for the Baltic Region: about 20 tonnes of quark, yoghurt and desserts. Annual inspections will now become the norm, to retain certification, and a major inspection will take place when the initial three-year term expires.
