Daintee Quality Department

The enviable reputation of Daintee Limited is largely due to the maintenance of high standards in quality and factory hygiene at all times. The three sites are visited regularly by foreign consultants, who advise staff and monitor the performance of every aspect of production. The management of the company has operated under the concept of Quality Management System (QMS) since 2004 in order to maintain a quality culture throughout the company. The company has been awarded the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2008 certificate. The company is hoping to be awarded the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2015 certificate, in recognition of the organisation meeting high quality standards, adhering to applicable regulatory requirements, aiming to enhance customer satisfaction and achieving continual improvement of its performance in pursuit of its objectives.
