webinar banner 0921

The Dairy Standard Agency’s primary objective is promoting compliance of milk and other dairy products with product composition, food safety and metrology standards.

DSA has a responsibility towards the consumer and other role players in the market to ensure that the products offered for sale are safe for human consumption and comply with legal specifications.

The national monitoring of milk and dairy products is done in collaboration with municipal health authorities. It entails that milk and dairy product samples are taken quarterly throughout South Africa with the assistance of the EHP’s at local municipalities. DSA collects all the samples at the municipalities and testing is done at DSA Lab Services.

In this webinar, the following will be shared:

  • Riana will discuss the basic principles of the laboratory tests performed by the DSA Lab Services.
  • Jacqueline will focus on the interpretation of the test results and how to rectify non-conformances.
