Baron Foods Lim­ited wins five SMA Awards

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Baron Foods Lim­ited, Saint Lu­cia’s lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany, has re­ceived five awards from the Saint Lu­cia Man­u­fac­tur­ers As­so­ci­a­tion (SMA).

The Di­a­mond Awards were con­ferred on the com­pany dur­ing the SMA’s quar­terly awards held at the San­dals Hal­cyon last week­end.

Prime Min­is­ter Dr Kenny Anthony was among those in at­ten­dance.

Baron Foods Lim­ited re­ceived di­a­mond awards in all cat­e­gories, namely: Prod­uct and Cus­tomer Ser­vice, Qual­ity, Hu­man Re­source Devel­op­ment, Im­ple­men­ta­tion of Stan­dards and Best Prac­tices, So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity and Lead­er­ship.

The SMA awards add to a slew of other ac­co­lades Baron Foods has al­ready ob­tained lo­cally, re­gion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

The com­pany’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer and founder, Mr. Ron­ald Ram­jat­tan, said that Baron Foods Lim­ited has a strong ge­n­e­sis of qual­ity, stan­dards and so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity in its pro­grammes.

“We started our jour­ney into qual­ity from day one, from 1991, with a range of twelve prod­ucts with ex­cep­tional qual­ity and pack­ag­ing, be­ing one of the best brands in the Caribbean. It paved the way for im­me­di­ate ex­port to ma­jor Caricom mem­ber states,” Mr. Ram­jat­tan said.

He dis­closed that Cer­ti­fied Stan­dard by third party au­dit, by SGS, was in­tro­duced to Baron Foods Lim­ited over twenty years ago by adopt­ing the HACCP and then, through con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ments, into ISO 22000 and fi­nally into FSSC qual­ity cer­ti­fi­ca­tion man­age­ment sys­tem.

“The Di­a­mond awards pre­sented by the SMA to Baron Foods on Satur­day night un­der­score our own com­mit­ment to the core prin­ci­ples of build­ing blocks used by us in the ar­eas of qual­ity, stan­dards, hu­man re­source, so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and prod­uct and cus­tomer ser­vices,” the Baron Foods Lim­ited CEO ex­plained.

Mr. Ram­jat­tan added: “This jour­ney into ex­cel­lence by adopt­ing all of the new and im­proved stan­dards will con­tinue to re­main piv­otal as the main in­gre­di­ents in pi­lot­ing Baron Foods in its con­tin­ued jour­ney, sat­is­fy­ing our cus­tomers’ palate world­wide with pizazz.”
