After its conversion earlier this year, the Meatco Okahandja Cold Storage has been making exceptional strides as a business unit by making N$20,000 savings per container going through Walvis Bay rather than storing and transporting products via the Cape Town route.
According to Meatco, due to Cold Storage operations they were able to secure jobs for employees who previously worked at the Okahandja Factory.
Furthermore, Meatco said thanks to the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Audit that took place in April and the subsequent obtaining of cold storage certification, the facility can assist other businesses in storing food.
The developments are applicable as long as the facility remains in compliance with all necessary Directorate of Veterinary Services regulations.
“Cold Storage is a winner for Meatco and it is even more beneficial because we are making use of our own premises and equipment,” Meatco said in statement.
