Chemelil Sugar Company is now ISO 9001:2008 ISO certified, upgraded from the ISO 9001:2000 certification.  This comes after a follow up audit by Bureau Veritas which was conducted in the month of July 2010.
Company celebrates ISO 9001:2000 with Pomp

The Company celebrated its attainment of ISO 9001:2000 with pomp and splendour, a fete that was only witnessed for the first time in the company’s history.  All staff were donned in green and white or white and green, or green and black T-shirts, representing the Company’s corporate colours with faces painted with excitement.

Invited guests started streaming in from as early as 9.30am ready to join in the celebrations, after which entertainment immediately kicked off as the guests continued to settle down.  The Company’s choir, school poems and acrobatic antics and an Orutu surprise, kept the visitors and staff entertained.

Dr. Wilson Songo, the Agriculture Secretary, was the sitting Chief Guest in the morning session, awaiting the arrival of the main Chief Guest, Hon. William Ruto, Minister for Agriculture.  Dr Songo, meanwhile, presided over the launch of the website, before making an appreciation tour of the factory over the extent of rehabilitation work.

The Minister for Industrialisation, Hon. Henry Kosgey, arrived amid thunderous applaud from the staff, farmers and other stakeholder.  And patient paid, when at 3.30pm the Minister for Agriculture, Hon. William Ruto, arrived to a rousing welcome and formally presided over the occasion.
Addresses were made, and immediately after the ISO certificate was unveiled, the cake was cut (by the two ministers) and guest proceeded for a luncheon. (July 17th 2009)
