ISO 22000 Food Safety Management Certification

Ensure food supply chain safety worldwide

About The ISO 22000 Standard

To ensure the safety of food products, and to reduce the risks of consumer exposure to contaminated or unsafe foods, food producers have introduced internal quality control programs. These programs also oblige their suppliers to demonstrate compliance with industry-standard food safety requirements, protocols and testing procedures. Every business within the supply chain should therefore establish an appropriate food safety management system to remain competitive.

ISO 22000 is an international standard designed to ensure food supply chain safety worldwide, enabling organizations to demonstrate their ability to control food safety hazards and ensure that food is safe for human consumption.

The standard is applicable to all organizations of any size within the food chain, and is recognized worldwide by stakeholders such as regulators, primary producers, food manufacturers and packers, retailers and consumers.

ISO 22000 demonstrates that robust and effective food safety management systems are in place, and can be used as first step to fulfill the requirements of schemes recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
