The refined white sugar produced by BUA Sugar Refinery, a subsidiary of BUA group of companies has received the revalidation of the mandatory conformity assessment programme (MANCAP) product quality certificate.
Director-General of Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), Mr. Osita Aboloma, presented the certificate to the company in Lagos.
The revalidation of BUA’s MANCAP certificate, according to Aboloma is an attestation to its product and process conformity to production standard.
Aboloma, represented by SON Lagos State coordinator, Mr. Joseph Ugbaja, explained that MANCAP protected manufacturers against counterfeiting and unfair trade practices thereby instilled confidence in consumers that locally produced goods were fit and safe for intended use.
SON introduced MANCAP in January 2006 as part of measures by the federal government to entrench the culture of quality in the manufacturing sector.
BUA Sugar Refinery managing director Alhaji Ibrahim Yaro said the certification was a demonstration and recognition of the consistent quality maintained in the company’s sugar production.Please subscribe to our newsletter
