Food Hygiene

ABOUT 1–million tons of fresh produce are traded via the Market every year. With this vast amount of produce going through the Market, it is imperative that attention be paid to the quality of this important commodity.  

The Joburg Market policy with regard to food hygiene is that fresh produce must be handled and treated under hygienic, safe and traceable conditions throughout the supply chain. The Market has taken up the challenge to be up to speed with the latest developments regarding food hygiene and has resurfacing the floor in the trading halls to improve food safety and the levels of hygiene at the Market. 

The new resurfaced floors have proper drainage to allow for deep cleansing with a ride-on scrubbing machine to attain high levels of food safety.  

The Market has also acquired the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) certification of the banana ripening facility and in the process became the first fresh produce market on the African continent to have a banana facility that adheres to food safety management system of international standards.
