Easternpak is committed to improve the processes of the food safety management system based on Yum! STAR Packaging Supplier Facility Audit.

Easternpak, Saudi Arabian-based corrugated manufacturer, which completed Yum!’s STAR Packaging Supplier Facility Audit in December 2006, has recompleted this audit in August 2008.

The corrugated manufacturer, formally approved as a supplier of carton and fast food packaging to Yum! Restaurants International since February 2007, has once more demonstrated strong adherence to Food Safety Management System.

Yum! is the world leader in system restaurants with over 34,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries and territories. Pizza Hut, KFC, Taco Bell, and Long John Silver’s are well-known global brands.

YUM! adopts a set of guidelines and a scorecard system, whereby it allocates scores during its audit. In order to pass the audit, a company has to score 80% without any automatic failure. Easternpak scored 94.3% given stringent requirements and scoring patterns knowing that it scored 87% during the audit accomplished in December 2006.

This new achievement is a result of the dedication of Easternpak management as well as all its employees to continuous improvement towards excellence.

Easternpak’s ISO 9001:2000 quality management system is accredited by CERT/TUV in Germany. The plant attained HACCP certification in 2006 and BRC / IOP and Good Manufacturing Practices in November 2007.
