Metro Retail Stores Group Inc. (MRSGI) reinforces its dedication to customer safety through the annual routine visit for the maintenance of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) at Metro Alabang Town Center. The British Standards Institution (BSI) Group Philippines, a leading certification body, granted the GMP and HACCP certifications, reaffirming MRSGI's commitment to upholding top-notch food safety and quality standards.

Manuel C. Alberto, MRSGI's President and COO, expressed his thoughts on the accomplishment, stating, "We take immense pride in the successful annual routine visit for the maintenance of Metro Alabang Town Center’s GMP and HACCP standards. This accomplishment significantly underscores our enduring commitment to prioritizing the safety, health, and satisfaction of our valued customers. As a company, we consistently strive to uphold the highest standards in every facet of our operations, and this maintenance effort stands as a tangible manifestation of those unwavering efforts."

MRSGI holds the distinction of being the first retailer awarded both GMP and HACCP certifications, showcasing its proactive approach to quality assurance. Currently, four MRSGI stores have achieved GMP and HACCP standards, reflecting the company's commitment to safety and quality across its network.

"Our journey towards maintaining these standards involved rigorous assessments and stringent audits to ensure that every aspect of our operations aligns with the highest safety standards. The annual routine visit for the maintenance of Metro Alabang Town Center underscores our commitment to delivering safe and quality products to our customers," said Florence Josephine Jorge, Quality Assurance Manager and HACCP team leader of MRSGI.

As MRSGI commemorates 11 years since the initial certification of Metro Alabang Town Center and looks ahead to the forthcoming recertification in 2025, the company continues to demonstrate its commitment to upholding GMP and HACCP standards.
