Intertek supports food supply chains globally with Total Quality Assurance solutions.

Intertek has been selected as a preferred Certification Body partner with Yum! to support their global implementation of GFSI recognized certifications of their supplier network. With the complex nature of the modern food supply chain, many retailers are requiring that facilities must have GFSI certification to be recognized as an approved supplier.

Our Global Auditing team is happy to support Yum! Suppliers on the journey to certification by incorporating Global Market Audits such as BRCGS Start!, FSSC Development Program, IFS Global Markets Food or SQF Fundamentals. These schemes are accepted by Yum! for developing suppliers across all risk levels with timebound requirements, and for low-risk suppliers on a long-term basis.

Intertek is accredited to offer certification for all supplier types from retail packaging, food manufacturing, to distribution centers and transportation facilities. Achieving certification for your facility does not only help you maintain your supplier relationship with Yum!, GFSI certification also helps to ensure quality and safety in your products and facilities.

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 organizations, governments, academia, and service providers to the global food industry. Intertek is fully committed to providing support to suppliers seeking certification and has decades of experience in certifying organizations against GFSI Food Safety Management Systems such as IFS Food, BRCGS, SQF or FSSC 22000.
