IFS Food – International Featured Standards Certification

International Featured Standard (IFS) Food is a GFSI-recognised standard for certifying the safety and quality of food products and production processes.

The standardized IFS Food evaluation system helps to reduce the need for repeat audits, which saves you time and money. The programme also 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.
