SON issued this warning during the presentation ceremony of Mandatory Conformity Assessment Progrmmme (MANCAP) certificate to the firm.
â€œIn as much as you have worked hard to achieve this certification, henceforth , you have our consent to display MANCAP Logo on BoBo milk beverages so that consumers can know they are consuming high quality products,â€said Director General SON, Dr. John Akanya.
He made it clear that the certification is valid for three years only, after which it will be re validated, stressing â€œ periodically, our surveillance officials will be coming to ensure you donâ€™t cut back on quality.â€
