ISO 22000 - Food Safety Management Systems

ISO 22000 is an internationally recognised standard designed to systematically ensure food safety at every link of the supply chain.

Established in 2005, ISO 22000 was designed as an accessible, globally accepted standard, and is applicable to organisations of all sizes involved in any aspect of the food supply chain. The standard covers the key components for ensuring food safety including interactive communication, system management, implementation of pre-requisite programmes and the continual review and improvement of the system.

ISO 22000 incorporates HACCP principles and is compatible with ISO 9001 quality management systems, making it the ideal basis for implementing a comprehensive, cost effective food safety management system. ISO 22000 implementation avoids the cost of multiple audits. Food safety management systems based on ISO 22000 promote continuous improvements in processes and performance, which can help your business become more efficient and because ISO 22000 is respected by governments and food safety experts worldwide, certification can open your business to new markets.
