COMPACT Meets ISO 22000 Food Safety Standards

For OUTBOUND home page, go to 

COMPACT supplies safe composite films for food contact to multinational and regional food producers.

Dammam-based COMPACT implements ISO 22000 food safety management system, meeting international statutory and regulatory food safety requirements. The Saudi composite films manufacturer attained ISO 22000 certification in March 2012.

ISO 22000, an international food safety standard, ensures that organizations throughout the food supply chain are safe for food contact. The international standard integrates principles of the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) system.

ISO 22000 also incorporates application steps developed by the Codex Alimentarius Commission. Created by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO), the Codex Alimentarius Commission provides food standards and guidelines under the FAO/WHO joint Food Standards Programme.

COMPACT Takes Key Steps to Achieve ISO 22000 Certification

Conducted by certifying body, Lloyds Register Quality Assurance, Stage 1 of the ISO 22000 certification audit took place on 6 February 2012 and Stage 2 of the audit from 8 – 10 March 2012. The first stage covered all documentation required for ISO 22000, while the second stage ensured that COMPACT adhered to the requirements in the documentation.

COMPACT modified infrastructure in accordance with HACCP requirements. The composite film manufacturer linked the printing section with the lamination section and the lamination section with the warehouse.

In order to keep dust and foreign hazards from entering the plant, the manufacturer installed double-door systems at the entrance of each section throughout the plant. Furthermore, to keep hygiene at required levels, COMPACT also installed a double-door system at the employee-entrance with a washing station.

COMPACT introduced several new documentations to fulfill all ISO 22000 and HACCP conditions including:

·    Food Safety Policy
·    Food Safety Manual
·    Internal audit procedure
·    Preventive action procedure
·    Prerequisite programs
·    Corrective action procedure
·    Handling of potentially unsafe products procedure
·    Operational Prerequisite programs
·    Recall Procedure
·    Control of documents procedure
·    Control of record procedure

Unipak Nile’s Customized Corrugated Packaging Satisfies Customer Needs

For OUTBOUND home page, go to

Corrugated packaging manufacturer, Unipak Nile, satisfies customer and market needs for effective packaging to protect plug and socket products during transport.

A customer approaches Unipak Nile and requests a packaging solution to ship power sockets from Egypt to Europe without damaging the product.

Challenge: Decorative lighting manufacturers face packaging problems when transporting power plugs and sockets. Conventional packaging damages products by packing plugs and sockets in corrugated boxes with merely a pad to separate the layers. This results in disorganization and friction between the plugs and sockets.

Unipak Nile Offers Plug & Socket Packaging Solution

Unipak Nile design team developed an efficient and effective corrugated packaging solution to protect and organize power plug sockets. The new customized and innovative product design integrates perforated corrugated pads to manage and firmly hold in place sockets.

Once cut, each perforation on the corrugated pad creates a carton flap that acts as a partition between sockets. These flaps offer stacking strength and protect the product from damage by ensuring that sockets are not loose and do not collide or scratch. Furthermore, the packaging solution maintains the same amount of sockets per corrugated box.

Result: Based on Unipak Nile’s design success, the customer increased business and requested the same packaging design for six other types of products.

About Unipak Nile

Established in 1996, Unipak Nile manufactures shelf ready packaging
,  promotional boxes, point-of-purchase (POP) displaysbag-in-box (BIB) cartons, corrugated base wrap, corrugated boxes, and corrugated trays for the beverage sector.

The corrugated packaging manufacturer also serves the agricultural, catering, chemical and petrochemical, dairy, food, hygiene disposables, industrial, paramedical, soap and detergent sectors in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Unipak Nile is ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and HACCP certified.
