Food Safety and Quality

At Cargills, every product that is manufactured or sold must meet the benchmark of quality standards that have been set by our company over a century of trading and operations. Likewise, we ensure that the food purchased, processed or manufactured meet the highest quality, safety, environmental and social standards.


Cargills Quality Dairies and Cargills Quality Foods are accredited with all three ISO Certifications ISO 9001: 2000 for Quality Management, ISO 14001: 2004 for Environment Management and ISO 22000:2005 for Food Safety Quality Management. All our automated manufacturing processes take place in a sterile environment that is equipped with anti-bacterial cold rooms, cold storage and manufacturing areas. The Cargills Quality Dairies and Cargills Quality Foods plants are the most technologically advanced facilities in the region.


The Cargills Kist quality assurance process is a stringent one that begins from the farm. Fruits are purchased during the season and processed in the UHT plant, minus the use of any preservatives, aseptically packed and stored for use all year around. Producing a novel TV Dinner range of Ready to Eat products in cans and pouches, the newly installed Retort machine is the only one of its kind in Sri Lanka. The Total Quality Management process used by our KIST facility, including SLS certifications, CODEX, standards ensure consistent high product and process quality.
