Due to increasing demand and pressure from consumers, retailers are now asking that their suppliers be able to demonstrate compliance with a recognized Food Safety standard. A lot of new standards have emerged over the past several years from private companies and associations. However, the result has been that each company is audited and certified against a multitude of Food Safety standards, causing confusion for both the manufacturer and consumer.
FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification provides a framework for effectively managing an organization’s food safety responsibilities. FSSC 22000 is fully recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and is based on existing ISO Standards. It proves that the company has a robust Food Safety Management System in place that meets customer and consumer requirements. This scheme incorporates existing standards, including ISO 22000, sector specific PRPs and HACCP, and it offers a complete certification program, making it accessible for organizations of all sizes.
