Mrs Leanne Kiezer, Pick n Pay Dietitian
"We have always worked well with the SAMRC-SAFOODS Team. In the past we could make contact to seek clarity on data in the FoodFinder and composition tables. Most recently, we have assisted the SAMRC with certificates of analysis for our products to assist with updating the database. So far the relationship has been very reactive, only responding to each other’s queries on request. It would be great to receive more proactive news from the SAMRC, as well as an update on how our COAs have been used."

"Always been great working with the SAFOODS group. Thank you for an efficient service to our Students when ordering Food Composition Tables"
