The Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON), says it has issued certificates of quality to five companies operating in Kano, Kano State.
They are Alhassan Table Water Ltd., Alhassan Table Water Ltd.., Rasa Industries Ltd., Solina Food and Beverages Nigeria Ltd., and Yerima Laboratories.
Engr. Yahaya Bukar, the State Coordinator of the Kano and Jigawa office of SON, made this known at the Federal Secretariat in Kano metropolis on Tuesday.
He said the certificates were for quality and an indication that the companies had met the required standard.
Bukar said that attaining quality was not a destination but a moving target to attain the set standard for companies to enjoy SON’s approval.
According to him, “if you have our logo, you are free to export your products to other countries of your choice”.
He advised owners of products that are still in the market without SON’s approval to come forward to be certified.
The SON coordinator said the move would improve the image of the products, encourage healthy competition, and give customer confidence on the fitness of the products.
He urged the companies to conform to quality of the products, “so that SON may not have any cause to withdraw its certificates.”
