Sri Lankan Catering, has just added the ISO22000:2005 and HACCP-Codex Alimentarius accreditations to its existing ISO9001:2000 standard, an airline statement said.
"Sri Lankan Catering met full compliance at the professional audits that were performed by the certifying bodies prior to the certifications," Dilip Nijhawan, chief executive of Sri Lankan Catering, was quoted as saying.
"These certifications have very strict standards and are extremely tough to obtain."
Nijhawan said the certifications recognise Sri Lankan Catering's products, systems and procedures as being of the highest global standards.
Sri Lankan Catering, one of the airline's main profit centres, provides in-flight catering for Sri Lankan Airlines and other airlines that fly through Colombo, and also operates restaurants at the island's sole international airport.
The company produces more than 13,500 meals a day in its fight kitchen which was built with an investment of 25 million US dollars.
The new certifications provide strict standards and guidelines for management of the entire production process, beginning with how raw materials such as vegetables, meats and fruits are received, through the preparation of meals, and transportation right up to delivery.
