To our valued Georgie’s fans.
We have felt the need to issue a release to assure our dear fans that it is 100% safe to continue eating and enjoying Georgie's pork products.
Food safety is of highest priority to us and we take stringent measures to provide you with the safest, high quality product you know and love.
SA Livestock Agents (SALA), which is the holding company of the Georgie’s brand, has always performed routine and regular tests on our pork product and facilities to manage food safety and to prevent microbial contamination of food. This testing includes Listeria.
We pride ourselves on our Food Safety standards and have achieved the FSSC 22 000 food safety certification which is currently the highest standard you can achieve in South Africa. Part of this is full accountability and full traceability for every piece of meat that comes from our farm to your fork.
Each pack of bacon or each cut of pork is traceable to the farm where it originated from - all local KZN farms.Knowing this not only gives retailers peace of mind, but you can rest assured that you are eating nothing but the best locally produced pork products.
Added to this is that fact that our products are vacuum sealed on site, eliminating any risk of cross-contamination, and providing you with the best quality end product possible.
Please continue enjoying Georgie’s products as you are used to, with the assurance that they are safe to consume.
