rely on various factors in ensuring their product has a competitive
edge over others and thereby increase their market share. These include
patented technologies, unique features, better pricing, packaging
and/or service and product enhancements that add value.
Amongst these tried and tested practices is endorsement by
organisations and services such as a medical body, an industry guild or
association, quality standards e.g. ISO, Bureau of Standards, Good Food
Society, Proudly South African, Heart Foundation, Beth Din Kosher and,
of course, the Halaal certification marks.
It stands to reason that costs of these enhancements which in the
case of our certification is minimal in the overall context of the
product, is not merely passed on to the customer. The product still has
to be competitive with others in the market place.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating. Your Flash news carried
