Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) officials on Sunday took dairy products manufacturer, Suncrest Creameries Limited, by surprise when they stormed its premises unannounced and queried management over poor hygiene.
MBS is a statutory body mandated to monitor and regulate standards of services and products.
The officials told company officials they needed to work on the hygienic problems, or else the institution would be closed for business.
However, Suncrest officials have hearkened to the call by rectifying all the problems by Monday morning.
Today, the premises and factory grounds are as clean as President Bingu wa Mutharika's neck-tie.
Directors have since called on MBS officials to go back and inspect the premises.
MBS classify company shortfalls into three categories: critical (in cases of food and medicine); Major and; minor.
