Sheraton Al Khalidiya awarded HACCP Certification

URS Middle East presents the HACCP certificate to the team of Sheraton Al Khalidiya

URS Middle East has awarded the Sheraton Al Khalidiya Hotel in Abu Dhabi with the HACCP Certification. The certification demonstrates the hotel’s commitment to food safety and its compliance with international standards for food safety and quality.

The hotel is host to a few restaurants, apart from providing in-room dining service, where it caters to the varied dining needs of its guests. This presents a unique challenge to its Food and Beverage department which is responsible for maintaining high quality in the food and drinks it prepares and for the safe storage and maintenance of food items on an on-going basis. All of these procedures are also required to be in strict compliance with local government regulations for food safety. URS Middle East was chosen to appraise its food safety procedures and certify it for the HACCP Certification.

Neelesh Sinha, Director at URS Middle East said, “It was a great honour for us to work with the team at Sheraton who exhibited a unique level of commitment and enthusiasm towards maintaining high safety standards in the food production and preparation process. We congratulate them on achieving this certification”.

With this certification, the hotel has demonstrated its commitment to foster a culture of quality and excellence among its staff and maintain the highest food safety standards of the industry while also monitoring the safety of their staff.

HACCP is a food safety management system where every step in the preparation, storage and distribution of food and raw materials are analyzed for chemical, microbiological, and physical hazards.

Getting HACCP certified for any F&B business not only enhances their competitiveness but also offers great business benefits because it helps the business establish an economical food safety system, in compliance with local government laws, which prevents cost overruns; augments production of high quality food as per industry safety standards; provides mentoring tips and ensures efficient and smooth teamwork.
