ISO 22000 Food Safety Management

If you work within the food industry you will know that food safety risks can occur at any stage of the food chain. Failures in the supply chain can have fatal consequences in terms of human suffering and even death. They can also cause irreversible damage to reputation and cost businesses dearly.

ISO 22000 is the international management system standard for food safety management. It addresses in particular the risks associated with food-borne hazards. Independent assessment to the standard ensures that the interdependent methods between food producers, suppliers, and customers are understood and managed. ISO 22000 therefore ensures the integrity of the food supply chain from ‘farm to fork’.
