SLSI to recognise village level market


Director, Meewaddana

Sri Lanka Standards Institution (SLSI) launched a programme to introduce its Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) scheme to the village level small entrepreneurs.

"SLSI will introduce this scheme through Vidatha Centers scattered islandwide. GMP is a certification scheme operated by SLSI to recognise the good manufacturing practices of entrepreneurs. SLSI mostly recommends GMP scheme for small businesses where the other certification schemes may not be affordable to them," Marketing and Promotion Director, SLSI, W. Meewaddana told Daily News Business.

"One constrain that the small entrepreneurs face in the market especially in the food industry, is the question of credibility in terms of hygiene and safety of their food products. GMP certification will provide a reasonable support to overcome this problem and sustain their businesses in the market.

Already a number of village level small businesses have obtained GMP certification to their products and have been able to enter to leading supermarkets and even to the foreign market."

"More than 30 village level entrepreneurs attended the seminar. SLSI expects to hold its next seminar in Hambantota. SLSI currently operates ten certification schemes for both products and management systems."
