Consumer Unity Trust Society International Centre Coordinator Chenai Mukumba has reiterated the need for Government and relevant stakeholders to be constantly engaging emerging small and medium scale manufacturers on the aspect of standardization.
Speaking to 5fm business news Mukumba notes that this is important in promoting consumers confidence in locally Manufactured Products.
She says this also offers an opportunity for exportation to foreign market.
Standardization is a framework of agreements to which all relevant parties in an industry or organization must adhere to ensure that all processes associated with the creation of a good or performance of a service are performed within set guidelines.
This ensures that the end product has consistent quality and that any conclusions made are comparable with all other equivalent items in the same class.
