What is FSSC 22000 Certification?

The increasing rise in this COVID -19 pandemic and globalization increases the demand for food which resulted in the variety of products getting introduced in the food supply chain. This rapid growth in demand has brought with it the challenges of producing products by ensuring adequate control of food safety, that the foods we consume are safe for our health. Consequently, food safety is now a truly global concern as people are more aware and cautious that it is not uncommon for processed food to contain ingredients that can be beneficial to their health.

The FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification has provided the solution for the above concern. It is a framework for effectively managing your organization’s food safety responsibilities to manufacture safe products for their end-users. FSSC 22000:2018 is fully recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and is based on existing FSSC Standards. It demonstrates and determines your organization has a robust Food Safety Management System in place for the compliance of the standard FSSC 22000, which meets the requirements of your customers and consumers. Already, 15.000+ organizations in over 140 countries achieved FSSC 22000 certification for their effective working and achieve the global market over their competitors.

Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000 is a scheme developed in response to a combination of FSSC 22000 sector-specific PRP and FSSC additional requirements.
