Fonterra enhances product testing capabilities in Sri Lanka

Fonterra Brands Lanka said this week it has received the ISO 17025 accreditation of its Quality Control Laboratory undertaken by the Sri Lanka Accreditation Board for Conformity Assessment (SLAB).
Thus Fonterra’s Quality Control Laboratory which is responsible for testing all Fonterra milk powder products pre and post production in Sri Lanka, has met a further set of stringent quality measures designed to ensure dairy products are produced in keeping with global standards, the company said.
The ISO/IEC 17025:2005 is the formal recognition of a laboratory’s ability to produce precise and trustworthy results. Fonterra Brands Lanka has, in the past, received the ISO 9001 and ISO 22000 certifications.

Achyut Kasireddy, Managing Director Fonterra Brands Lanka said, “The accreditation of our laboratory further reinforces Fonterra Brands Lanka’s commitment to providing high quality standards for dairy in the country. This accreditation further supports and reinforces the confidence our consumers have in our products, such as our Anchor Full Cream and PediaPro Growing Up Milk Powder as well as our much loved Ratthi range of locally produced dairy products.”

As a part of the accreditation, the Fonterra Quality Control laboratory testing facilities were upgraded as per the ISO 17025 requirements and laboratory analysts received additional theoretical and practical training. This was followed by a series of audits conducted by experts in the field of laboratory management.

The audits were carried out by the Sri Lanka Accreditation Board for Conformity Assessment (SLAB), which is the National Accreditation Authority for Sri Lanka. SLAB is a full member of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC).
