The Trend Towards Certification

''Food Safety & Quality and the Trend Towards Certification'' takes as its starting point the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarks, and then focuses on the four accepted standards most widely in use. Through detailing the requirements, reporting, procedures and audits that each certification entails, the white paper helps producers to find the standard that is the best fit for their industry.

The white paper:

  • Summarizes the current most used food standards, including BRC, FSSC 22000, IFS and SQF 
  • Offers a short comparison of each and what to consider when deciding which standard to adopt
  • Provides an outlook on trends – such as the need for manufacturers and suppliers to take a more active role in certification
