The quality chain of dairy products is extensive and requires appropriate control throughout the value chain to ensure that end product will comply with legal standards and satisfy the needs of the consumer. For this reason, it is imperative that input suppliers commit themselves to quality and /or food safety standards regarding their products used in the process of dairy production, processing, packing, storage and distribution.
The primary objective of the Dairy Standard Agency (DSA) is to promote the improvement of dairy quality and safety on a national level in the interest of the industry and the consumer. The DSA recognises the important role and contribution of input supplier companies, which service the dairy industry with high-quality products and integrity and is desirous to collaborate with such companies through the DSA Dairy Quality Club. The Dairy Quality Club is a forum of suppliers that support the initiatives of the DSA as an independent objective institution.
Purpose of the Dairy Quality Club
- To assist and encourage stakeholders in the dairy industry purchasing from input suppliers that maintain product integrity and high standards.
- To enable the DSA to identify potential suppliers to the dairy industry who will enhance the quality and safety of the manufacturer’s products.
- To create a technical platform from which recommendations can be made regarding dairy technical information.
