Tongaat Hulett operations have embarked on programmes to conduct third party audits and/or certifications. In this regard, targets have been set for third party audits and certifications associated with NOSA, OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and HACCP/GMP. All operations in all countries have been certified under the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System with the exception of Botswana, Namibia, Mafambisse and Xinavane. Programmes are in place to secure ISO 14001 certification for the four remaining centres. Tongaat Hulett’s sugar operations were audited by NOSA on the integrated star rating system and are all certified except in Namibia. All four starch mill operations are certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. The Zimbabwe operations are NOSA and ISO 14001 certified with Hippo Valley Estates having an additional OHSAS 18001 certification. The Swaziland operation is certified to ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and NOSA. Some of the starch and sugar operations have embarked on HACCP/ISO 22000 food safety assessments. Germiston and Kliprivier are HACCP/ISO 22 000 certified and the Maidstone and Darnall Mills are partly certified. Plans are in place to pursue the ISO 14001 as well as HACCP/ISO 22 000 within the next five years.
