Buy local products, ZABS tells Zambians

By Nation Reporter

THE Zambia Bureau of Standards (ZABS) has advised Zambians to buy more local products to support the growth of the local industry and promote nationalism.

In a statement, ZABS head of marketing and public relations Hazel Mafwenko Zulu urged consumers to make a conscious decision to buy locally made products so that they could help boost the local industry.

Ms Zulu explained that it was important for consumers to buy and consume more local products as the use of local products would stimulate industrial growth and promote the spirit of unity, hard work and patriotism in the supply chain.

She noted that the demand for consistent, safe and reliable local products by consumers would push local industry to aim for excellence.

Ms Zulu said that the demand for better products would also incorporate the use of standards in their business processes and enhance product quality.

“Consumers should choose to buy and consume more local products as the use of local products will stimulate industrial growth and promote the spirit of unity, hard work and patriotism in the supply chain.

‘‘The demand for consistent, safe and reliable local products by consumers will push local industry to aim for excellence and incorporate the use of standards in their business processes and enhance their product quality,” she said.

Ms Zulu urged Zambians to make a difference by buying, using and consuming more local products to support industrial growth.

She assured consumers that ZABS had modern laboratories for testing and analyzing of products to national and international standards.

Ms Zulu also noted that local products had really improved in quality because the compliance levels on local products had also significantly improved.

“This year’s Independence will be celebrated under the theme ‘Working together for greater unity, hard work and patriotism’. So consumers should make a difference by buying, using and consuming more local products to support industrial growth.

‘‘Local products have really improved in quality because the compliance levels on local products have also significantly improved,” she said.
