Management System Certifications for the Food Industry

Access to safe and nutritious food is an essential requirement for consumers around the world. Accordingly, food producers make significant investments to reduce the risks associated with consumer exposure to contaminated or unsafe foods. Producer efforts to ensure the safety of their food products impact every aspect of the supply chain, and represent a substantial element of total food production expenditure.
