As a result, we have attained certification for two world recognised Management Systems: ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System and ISO 22000:2005 Food Safety Management System.
These systems are maintained through regular internal audits while external audits are conducted by Bureau Veritas.

Proctor & Allan branding
Proctor and Allan (EA) Ltd was incorporated in April 1999 after the acquisition of Proctor & Allan Ltd from Unga Group Ltd, by a group of investors and The Acacia Fund.
Proctor & Allan Ltd has been in operation since the 1950’s. In 2011, the journey of re-branding started by defining the core reason for Proctor & Allan existence. It was important to define our primary and secondary target market, their demographics to use in order to reach every one of them.
It is during this exercises that we made a promise to our target market that we would be their ‘home of healthier foods’.
All this led to the culmination of our current branding and packaging.
Our core value is continuous improvements and shareholders and the board of directors are committed to ensuring this value is achieved. In this regard, Proctor & Allan improves the manufacturing processes as one of the key focus areas.
This includes installation of new equipment that would deliver this e.g. additional metal detectors, a new boiler, improved grain cleaning process etc.
