Kediri, 24 October 2023 – Garudafood, through its subsidiary, PT Sinarniaga Sejahtera (SNS), which operates in food and beverage distribution, supports the efforts of the Head of the Indonesian Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM) in implementing the Processed Food Safety Management System (SMKPO) for the standardization of processed food safety management in the distribution facilities.
This was proven by the Processed Food Safety Management System (SMKPO) certificate given by Penny Kusumastuti Lukito, Head of the Indonesian Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM), to Rudi Setiadi, Regional Head of PT Sinarniaga Sejahtera (SNS) at Pendopo Panjalu Jayati in Kediri, East Java.
The official BPOM website defines SMKPO as a system that is prepared and developed to guarantee the safety and quality of processed food through independent risk-based supervision. The SMKPO certification symbolizes Garudafood's commitment and dedication, through SNS, to maintain the quality of food and beverage products along the food distribution chain, so the processed food consumed by the public remains safe and of good quality.
Upon receiving the SMKPO Certification, Garudafood, through SNS, has fulfilled BPOM's commitment or implementation standards in receiving, storing, displaying, distributing, transporting, and/or dispensing processed food products.
By the end of 2023, 50% of SNS depots will be SMKPO certified and the process will continue to gradually meet the target of 100% certified depots
