The consequences of eating poor quality food can be dire, and the ISO 22000 food safety information standard is helping organizations manage this situation. Since many food products today cross national borders repeatedly, international standards are essential to ensure the safety of the global supply chain.
The implementation of a food safety management system (ISO 22000) is a strategic decision for an organization that can help improve its overall food safety performance.
ISO 22000 takes a process approach in developing and implementing an FSMS and improving its effectiveness in order to increase the production of safe products and services while meeting applicable requirements.
Understanding and managing interrelated processes as a system contributes to increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization in achieving the intended results.
Potential benefits to an organization from the implementation of ISO 22000 - Food Safety Management System:
✔️ the ability to consistently provide safe food, products and services that meet consumer and applicable legal and regulatory requirements;
✔️ elimination of risks associated with its goals;
✔️ the ability to demonstrate compliance with the established FSMS requirements;
✔️Ability to stimulate market growth;
✔️ ISO 22000 contains the requirements for the FSSC 22000 food safety management system (which is a Global Food Safety Initiative recognized by the GFSI scheme) and is used in conjunction with the required program requirements for the relevant industry sector.
