Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Certifications
Ensuring food safety is of critical importance to the global food supply chain. Support your organization by implementing a globally-recognised scheme from GFSI.
The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) consists of key members of the food industry that collaboratively drive continuous improvement in food safety management systems around the world. Food industry leaders created GFSI in 2000 to find collaborative solutions to collective concerns, notably to reduce food safety risks, audit duplication and costs while building trust throughout the supply chain. The GFSI community is composed of the world's leading food safety experts from retail, manufacturing, and food service companies, as well as international organisations, governments, academia and service providers to the global food industry.
With the complex nature of the modern food supply chain, many retailers are insisting that facilities must have GFSI certification to be recognised as an approved supplier.
BRC Food Safety
BRC Food Safety is a leading safety and quality certification programme, used by over 23,000 suppliers in 123 countries and issued through a worldwide network of accredited certification bodies.
The FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification provides a framework for effectively managing food safety and quality responsibilities. FSSC 22000 demonstrates a company has a robust and effective food safety management system (FSMS) in place to meet the requirements of regulators, food business clients and consumers.
GLOBALG.A.P. refers to an internationally accepted set of farm standards and is recognised in more than 100 countries, offering guidance on sustainable production practices, animal welfare and worker health and safety. Certification helps producers meet the demand for high quality, sustainable food and allows retailers and consumers to choose quality produce with confidence.
International Featured Standard (IFS) Food helps to improve the understanding of quality and safety processes across your organisation and throughout your entire supply chain, providing standards that deliver uniformity and transparency.
