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.
Certifying 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.
