Cub Scouts Visit

You may recall that in December last year, we had a visit from a local Cub Scouts Group. Well, we enjoyed the visit so much that we decide to repeat the experience, so, on Saturday 28th March, we welcomed 25 members of the Abu Hanifah Foundation Cub Scouts Group.

Aged between 6 and 7, the cubs visited our manufacturing facility in Blackburn and were welcomed by our managing director, Faruk Vali. He gave them a quick overview of the company’s work and showed them a company video before conducting them on a tour of the factory floor.

The cubs saw how workers prepared to enter the production area, the protective clothes they wore and the equipment they used to prevent food contamination. Staff gave a demonstration of their work and explained the processes that KQF had to follow in order to operate safely.

“It was great to have another group of cubs visit our factory,” said Faruk Vali. “It’s nice to have the opportunity to show children around and to demonstrate how seriously we take matters like hygiene and safety. The highlight, though, was our ever-popular sausage/polony-making challenge, where we show the children how it’s done and then invite them to have a go. They worked very well and received a certificate to commemorate all their hard work.”

After trying their hands at food manufacture, the scouts completed their tour by receiving a ‘goody bag’ containing polonies, sausages and KQF’s new Halal Macon Rashers and a certificate of attendance.

It was another great day with the Abu Hanifah Foundation Cub Scouts Group and we thank them all for visiting us.
