Ziyad Bin Mahfouz, President of Elaf Group
The Elaf Al Huda and Elaf Taiba hotels in Al Madina have once again obtained the ISO certification for adopting the most stringent hygiene and food safety practices, following a thorough assessment of the hotels’ systems and processes related to food safety. This certification reaffirms the high level of emphasis that Elaf hotels place on adopting international standards of quality and service to exceed customer expectations.
Ziyad Bin Mahfouz, President of Elaf Group, pointed to the group’s strategy of implementing global standards in hospitality and underlined that all their properties in Makkah Al Mokarama, Al Madina Al Munawara and Jeddah adopt the highest quality standards.
TÜV Rheinland issued the ISO 22000:2005 Food Safety Management Systems certification to “Elaf Al Huda” and “Elaf Taiba” hotels after the detailed assessment by the auditors. The ISO 22000:2005 is a management system designed to enable organizations in the food chain to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe at the time of consumption.
“The issue of food safety has been making headlines around the world with increasing frequency. Thus, obtaining the ISO 22000 certificate for the entire Food & Beverage team, fully demonstrates our ongoing commitment to giving top priority to the safety of guests and employees. This ISO certification also underscores our excellent position in Saudi Arabia’s hospitality industry,” concluded Bin Mahfouz.
