Quality at all times

  •    EU approved

The food hygiene conditions for food imports are laid down in several parts of EU law. Products of animal origin from third countries must comply with requirements that prevent the introduction of animal diseases into the EU. These requirements emanate from Council Directive 2002/99/EC of laying down the animal health rules governing the production, processing, distribution and introduction of products of animal origin for human consumption.

  • NSI


The Namibian Standards Institution (NSI) is one of the key performance indicators (KPI) of the country's national quality infrastructure. The Namibian Standards Institution (NSI) is established in terms of the Standards Act 18, of 2005. It is governed by the Namibian Standards Council (NSC). The expected results of the NSI Programme are an established and functional national standards body in Namibia, capable of :

  • developing, adopting and applying standards;

  • providing accurate measurement traceability to the international standards (SI) through the metrology division;

  • providing reliable testing especially for food such as fish and fishery products including shellfish, beef and agro-products and rendering food safety technical support to the aquaculture, fishing and other industries through regular tests conducted at the NSI Biotoxins and Microbiology laboratories at Walvis Bay and through NSI Inspection and Certification.

  • Halaal


Halaal means permitted or lawful. So when we are talking about halal foods it means any foods that are allowed to be eaten according to Islamic Sharia law. This means that for any food to be considered halal it must comply with the religious ritual and observance of Sharia law. Halaal certification means that food has been subjected to approved certification systems which guarantee to consumers that nothing in the food has any

forbidden components. Halaal certificates are issued, for a fee, by a certifying body.
