METRO Supermarket gets Best Business Practice Award

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - METRO Alabang Supermarket was recently conferred the Best Business Practice Award by the City of Muntinlupa in simple rites attended by officials from the METRO Retail Group and Muntinlupa City.

Muntinlupa City Mayor Jaime R. Fresnedi conferred the citation to METRO Alabang Supermarket in recognition of the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) Certifications received by the supermarket from SGS Philippines.

METRO Alabang Supermarket is the first and only store in the Philippines to receive the GMP and HACCP certifications which covers the supermarket’s fresh produce handling process from receiving, storage, to the dispatch of goods to its customers.  SGS certified that METRO Alabang Supermarket complied with all the requirements of the audit standard and has the needed structure to support implementation and maintenance of international food safety management systems.

“The Best Business Practice Award is not just an honor to the Metro Retail Group but a testament to the level of commitment the company has in raising the standards in food safety management in the country. The systems and people METRO has put into place to warrant compliance and summarily the awarding of such international standards speak of the high regard METRO puts into the service they provide to its customers. We are very fortunate that Metro Alabang Supermarket is looking after our health and welfare,” stated Fresnedi.

“But more than the honor METRO Alabang Supermarket justly deserves; this certification is also a responsibility, a commitment that the METRO Retail Group pledge to its customers. This recognition is a challenge for METRO to reach out to other companies in the retail industry to heighten their operations and bring it to the next level,” added Fresnedi.

The METRO Retail Group is currently taking a quality oriented, customer-driven approach to deliver an improved and affordable assortment of products and services. The company is also gearing up for aggressive expansion in different store formats particularly department stores, supermarkets, hypermarkets, and neighborhood stores.

“We celebrate this award as METRO Supermarket has always strived to adhere to best business practices through the implementation of policies that demonstrate a commitment to customers by showing extreme attention to food and health safety management. METRO is a retail organization that demonstrates unique and inventive practices, products, and procedures. Thus, encouraged by this citation, the METRO Retail Group will continue to work on delivering an improved and affordable assortment of products and services that will meet the needs of its customers,” stated Eduardo C. Ponce, METRO Retail Group president and COO.
