Lae Biscuit Company

Lae Biscuit Company accredited

FSSC is a global food safety initiative recognized food safety certification that is based on the standard and technical specification of ISO 22000, ISO 9001, ISO/TS 220022 and the FSSC22000 additional requirements.

This is a milestone for the local company, especially for the Chow family who have built this business up from humble beginnings.

The company received confirmation over the Independence weekend that they had been awarded the certification.

Sharks partner up with leading PNG Brand

As stated by Sharks CEO Dino Mezzatesta, this association with Lae Biscuits is a ground breaking partnership and is set to be of great benefit to both organisations.

“The Lae Biscuit Company have been long time supporters of rugby league in PNG and we thank Ian Chow and Lae Biscuits for considering the Sharks as a viable partner as they look to spread their wings into the Australian market,” Mezzatesta began.

Firms frustrated with change in code

Chief executive officer of the Lae Biscuit Company, Ian Chow, said another barrier was added when Papua New Guinea Customs recently changed the coding of certain goods.

LBC was affected when the coding on shortening was changed and duty was added. On top of that, the charges were backdated to five years earlier, meaning companies have to pay the new rate for the previous financial years.

LBC meets international food safety measure

The LBC has been awarded the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) certification by the Papua New Guinea Certification Services through the National Institute of Standards and Industrial Technology (NISIT) in PNG.

Lae Biscuit Company Group general manager, John Chow, in acknowledging the achievement of the company, said this is a milestone accomplishment.

Chow thanked the Lae Biscuit Company HACCP team for working behind the scene and putting together all required documentation and assessments.
