PASSION FOR QUALITY
Quality certifications at our Cattle Feeding Operations and Beef Processing Facility
Our Marquard cattle feeding operation is certified to ISO 22000 standards, ensuring that our cattle are treated humanely and mitigating the risk associated with feeding and medicating animals. Our world-class electronic identification system (EID) is at the core of our ISO certification as this system places much emphasis on the traceability of every animal regarding the details of the life cycle of every animal.
Our beef processing facility is FSSC 22000 certified. Fully recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative, this certification demonstrates Sparta’s commitment to ensuring that world-class health and safety standards are adhered to. The traceability of our EID system continues throughout our vertically integrated operation up to packaged deboned batch.
The beef processing facility is certified halaal by the South African National Halaal Authority (SANHA) for the abattoir and deboning process and by the National Independent Halaal Trust (NIHT) for our retail pack division.
In our Marquard cattle feeding operation we are proud to be certified with the following international standards and specifications: ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environmental), ISO 22000 (Food Safety) and ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management system).
