ISO 22000 Food Safety
ISO 22000 is internationally recognised as the standard for controlling food safety hazards. It specifies the requirements for a food safety management system, by mapping out how an organisation needs to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards, in order to consistently produce food products, which are safe for the end consumer.
Certification to ISO 22000 demonstrates that the framework of a structured management system is incorporated into the overall management activities of the organisation. It is also evidence of the company’s commitment to food safety, throughout the supply chain, to ensure delivery of safe food products to its customers.
What are the benefits of ISO 22000 Food Safety?
- Demonstrate an organisation’s commitment to food safety
- Ensure control, at all stages of the food supply chain, are in place to prevent food safety hazards
- Embed and improve the internal processes needed to provide consistently safe food
- Provide a framework for management commitment, supplier and customer communication and continuous improvement of the food safety system
- Provide confidence to customers and other stakeholders that you have the ability to control food safety hazards and provide safe products
- Provide a means of continual improvement that ensures the food safety management system is reviewed and updated, so that all activities related to food safety remain safe and effective
Is ISO 22000 right for you?
ISO 22000 works for all organisations, regardless of their size, by outlining best practice that delivers results and conveys confidence throughout the organisation and to stakeholders and consumers.
Failures in food safety practices are dangerous and expensive with very serious consequences. This food safety management standard can help organisations identify and control food safety hazards across international business boundaries.
