AitkenSpence Resorts first to achieve ISO 22000: 2005 Standard in the Maldives
Four of the AitkenSpence Resorts (Adaaran) have become the first resorts in the Maldives to achieve the prestigious ISO 22000/HACCP standard, according to its General Manager Operations Nimal Sangakkara.
This was announced at a gathering held at the ADAARAN Resort of Hudhuran Fushi last week which was attended by Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation Dr. Mahmoodh Shaughee, Managing Director of internationally Accredited certification body SGS Mr. Claude Lanohe, Vice Chairman of ADAARAN Resorts Rajan Brito and CEO of ADAARAN Resorts, Chethya Perera.
The ISO 22000/HACCP (Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points) standard was received by Adaaran club Rannalhi, Adaaran Select Meedhupparu, Adaaran ayurveda village and Adaaran prestige Water Villas. “Such an achievement demonstrates the superior level of service of the resorts in the Maldives which is at par with international standards in rest of the world.
Resorts in the Maldives often receive various international awards for their excellent service; but it’s the first time that a resort in the Maldives has received an award in relation to food safety and food quality standards,” Sangakkara said in a press release.
Earlier this year, ADAARAN Resorts inaugurated its Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality Studies Campus at ADAARAN Centre for Hospitality Studies in Hudhuran Fushi which fully sponsors all the costs of students who study at their campus.
