"Quality begins with Me"



QAS - India

Quality Assurance (QAS-India) - Quilon, Kerala, India was born in 1994 to help and assist the buyers, to remove their anxieties and hardships. Subsequent to the globalization of economy and introduction of free trade, the statutory governance of quality issues was done away within India in the nineties. Mr. P.R.Prasannakumarji (Babu) who had about three decades of QC experience in the Govt. organizations founded QAS in July 1994 in Quilon, often hailed as the Mecca of cashew nuts. Export trade in food and agricultural products has always been plagued with problems of quality, quantity, price, hygiene, packing, delayed deliveries etc.. The buyer sitting thousands of kilometers away was most often unable to control many of these factors.
