Consistent with INDEVCO Paper Containers Strategy and Unipak Nile’s continuous effort to meet the highest management system, the corrugated packaging manufacturer celebrated the passing of the Yum! FSA audit on 26 May 2011, and receiving approved supplier status.

Cairo-based Unipak Nile is now approved to supply
corrugated pizza boxes for Yum! top restaurant brands worldwide - KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Long John Silver's.

Fayssal Frem, INDEVCO Paper Containers Managing Director, stated,

"These certificates represent more to me than merely the audit results; they are an integral part of our culture and operating behavior. It is one important factor of differentiation from the rest of the players (competitors and customers).” 

Yum! is known for its meticulous supplier audit system to ensure food safety and superior quality products. Yum’s Supplier Tracking and Recognition (STAR) audit system sets standards and monitors suppliers for food safety and security and quality assurance in management system processes.

The audit covers pest control, sanitation, operations and facility management, good manufacturing practices (GMP), and product protection, recovery and food security.

Unipak Nile produces corrugated catering disposable products, such as: corrugated double decker pizza boxes, corrugated meal delivery boxes, and corrugated cup holders.

Gilbert Hobeika, Unipak Nile General Manager, congratulates Unipak Nile,

“A supplier approval status like Yum! does not only open doors with one of the giants in the pizza industry, but it also reflects a standard and a behavior that we operate under which places us among the big players worldwide.

Having been certified for HACCP and GMP, in addition to other international customer certifications like PAPA JOHNS, Heineken, etc..., this certification served as another key milestone. We have long foreseen this certification based on our high quality standards.

The commitment and team work that accompanied this audit was remarkable. We will build on what we have achieved to maintain the culture, spirit, readiness and team work that enrich our company and our personal objectives.”

Unipak Nile is a member of INDEVCO Paper Containers, a division of INDEVCO Group.
