Chankwakwa was among the first food businesses in Zambia that achieved HACCP certification by the Swiss SGS (SANS 10330: 2007). Chankwakwa has also partnered with the Danish food manufacturer Hansens Ice Cream in the further development of the HACCP system.
Chankwakwa is a responsible family business. This is also emphasized by its status as a FAIRTRADE business. The FAIRTRADE structure consists of organizing farmers in a democratic cooperative and ensures a sustainable future for the families. The FAIRTRADE system sets high minimum prices on fruit and yields a shared profit for the local community.
ECOCERT stands for certification that lives up to all international standards. To certify and control the 100% natural product, Chankwakwa has achieved certification for itself as well as for the local farmers. Although the local families have never used any insecticides on their trees, the certification will protect against insecticides in the future.
