Del Monte responds to media reports in relation to the CAK gazette Notice

Del Monte Kenya Limited (DMKL) has noted with concern false representation of facts by a section of the media in relation to the Competition Authority of Kenya (CAK) gazette notice.

In a statement sent to media houses by its Managing Director Stergios Gkaliamoutsas, DMKL clarified that the Competition Authority’s investigations were in relation to a missing wording on the packaging of one of their products.

This omission, Stergios said, had been corrected and the packaging amended long before the Authority contacted the company, a position that was acknowledged by both parties leading to a settlement.

“At no point did the quality, safety and integrity of Del Monte Kenya’s products suffer nor were the high production and hygiene standards in dispute,” he said.

The MD stressed Del Monte Kenya’s commitment to delivering the best food safety & quality.

“In order to guarantee this, the Company complies to the highest Quality standards, and voluntarily maintains the Food Safety System Certification (FSSC 22000:2011 Certificate), which incorporates the ISO 22000:2005 and ISO/TS 22002-1 standards.  In addition, the Company is certified as per the International Featured Standard (IFS) for foods and the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety,” concluded Stergios.
