“After four days of robust independent auditing, our Yummies manufacturing facility was given a near-perfect 97% score for its food’s safety quality management systems, demonstrating we consistently produce safe and high-quality products for our ever-increasing customers throughout the Central American region, the Dominican Republic and beyond,”said ​Roger Pineda, corporate relations/sustainability director, Dinant.

The SQF Safe Quality Food Program is an internationally-renowned certification that rewards a culture of safe quality and encourages responsible manufacturing and agricultural processes towards increasing product yield by reducing waste.   

It relies on third-party assessment to verify adherence to the requirements of the SQF Code.

"We can now add the SQF certification to recently renewed certifications for environmental management (ISO 14001) and occupational health and safety (OHSAS 18001) at the Yummies manufacturing plant,” added Pineda.   

“With a commitment to high quality products, strong brands, and our passion for innovation and sustainability, Dinant has reaffirmed its position as one the most established companies in the mass consumer goods market in Central America and Dominican Republic.”


Dinant’s Yummies snacks are made using corn, yucca, plantain, malanga, camote, cashew and potatoes supplied by a range of producers, including local independent farmers.

In 2016, its Zambos snacks, made by Dinant and part of Honduran culture, was selected to represent Honduras in a government campaign to promote the nation’s values, traditions and skills abroad.
