Cape Town, South Africa  – Members of the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) South African have pledged their time and commitment to serve on the newly created GCCA Food Safety & Compliance Committee. This committee was created so members could discuss the laws and regulations impacting cold chain logistics and refrigerated storage industry in South Africa and collectively build stronger relationships between industry and related government agencies.

The seven committee members beginning their one-year term on 1 August 2020 are:

  • Larna Jodamus, Compliance Manager, CCS Logistics
  • Verona Ramsook, Group Food Safety Manager, Etlin International
  • Phindile Ntshaba, SHEQ Executive, Vector Logistics
  • Colin Barker, Compliance Manager, Table Bay Cold Storage
  • Altie van Zyl, Compliance Manager, Cross Berth Cold Stores
  • Philippa Charlesworth, Admin Manager, Reefer Cold Storage
  • Bomkazi Ndlebe, Compliance Officer, CCS Logistics

"I am excited to launch the inaugural GCCA South Africa Food Safety & Compliance Committee with these seven leaders who have made the commitment to help strengthen Africa’s cold chain through food safety & compliance,” says Regional Director Lizelle van der Berg. “Collectively, they will serve as the voice of the cold chain industry and help GCCA Africa create exponential value for our members.” 

Committee service offers members the opportunity to engage in focused, high-level strategic discussions about the industry and/or association programs. This is a unique chance for members to learn from their peers while giving back to the association by sharing their time and experience. Participation in committees is restricted to individuals from member companies only.
