Intertek has been awarded a contract by the National Food Safety Authority (NFSA) in Egypt to provide certification services for food and contact material exports.
Food products and food contact materials are verified in the respective exporting countries to ensure they comply with Egyptian Food law and regulation, assuring Egypt’s citizens of the quality and safety of imported food.
Thomas Kordick, Global Business Line Leader, Government and Trade Services, Intertek says: “We’re delighted to be working with the National Food Safety Authority supporting them with the programme, giving Egypt’s consumers the Assurance they need when buying imported food products. Having introduced the very first programme of this type, our Conformity Assessment Programme, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia more than 20 years ago, Intertek has the experience and expertise to provide the NFSA, and exporters to Egypt, with a rapid and excellent service.”
Exporters of food products and food contact materials to Egypt are required to provide a Certificate of Inspection to achieve fast-track customs clearance. This certificate can be obtained from Intertek.
