SAINT LOUIS, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Novus International, Inc., manufacturing plant in Shanghai, China was awarded the 2013 Annual Agricultural Product Quality Safety Supervision Outstanding Performance Award and recognized as "Class A Enterprise" by the local Ministry of Agriculture.
"These two awards are recognition of the outstanding accomplishments of the Shanghai plant team in raw material and finished product quality control and safety, warehouse management, material traceability, and QC lab management," said plant manager Kenny Xie.
Novus is one of only 2 companies in the district to receive the Outstanding Performance Award from the Shanghai Jiading Ministry of Agriculture. In addition, only 12% of the 157 feed companies in Shanghai joined Novus in receiving the "Class A Enterprise" rating, the highest rating possible.
