Supermarket and department store chain Metro Retail Stores Group Inc. (MRSGI) has been recertified anew for meeting the highest sanitary and food safety management standards, a development seen as crucial at a time when Covid-19 continues to pose serious threats to public health.

The recertification is for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP). This covers the fresh section that comprises meat, poultry and seafood; and fruits and vegetables of Metro supermarket’s branches at Metro Alabang and Metro Market! Market! Taguig in Metro Manila as well as Ayala Center Cebu and Metro Mandaue City in the Visayas.

The auditing was conducted by the British Standards Institution Group Philippines Inc. and Société Générale de Surveillance Philippines, both global leaders in providing benchmarks of quality and integrity through inspection, verification, testing and certification.

The accreditations illustrate MRSGI’s strict compliance with globally recognized food safety and sanitation practices.
