ZadSource upholds our commitment to quality and safety through the thorough management, testing and assessment of products and key suppliers.
All our key suppliers undergo precautionary COVID-19 assessments. This is effected during supplier visits, with specific assessments conducted to oversee cleaning protocols, conduct spot checks, and ensure ADNOC / MOH - PCR and vaccination requirements are met.
ZadSource utilises an integrated management system that ensures food safety, and the health and safety protocols of our key supplers. Additionally, annual verification by an external company is conducted to demonstrate compliance.
All products are subject to surveillance testing to ensure food safety. This includes chemical, micro and pesticide analysis, antibiotic tests, and migration tests for food contact materials.
The effectiveness of our key suppliers' business continuity plan (BCP) is tested on an annual basis, defining and mapping the supplier continuity process and ensuring key standards are maintained.
At ZadSource, we ensure that complexities and risks are contained as part of our commitment to upholding SCI standards. The process we conduct to ensure safe and quality standards are maintained is detailed below:
ZadSource actively identifies risks in the supply chain, conducting a risk assessment on key suppliers, as well as on food fraud vulnerability.
ZadSource ensures greater visibility through the process of supplier mapping and mapping out where produced have been sourced from.
All suppliers must be formally approved by ZadSource. Suppliers who are interested in working together with ZadSource and our clients must undergo audit assessments conducted by an authorised third party to ensure all standards are met.
All suppliers must meet set specifications and defined standards pertaining to ingredients and product attributes.
All ingredients and products go through a verification process to ensure its safety and authenticity. This is done through third-party laboratory testing.
