Food Safety Certification
Food safety is a concern that all consumers have in mind – especially given widespread recalls, reports of contaminated or unsafe food, and other worries. There are a huge range of certification options available to producers and manufacturers of food and agricultural products; PJR is proud to offer two excellent options in FSSC and ISO 22000 certification.
FSSC (also referred to as FSSC 22000) is a complete certification scheme based on three existing standards: ISO 22000, ISO 22002-1, and ISO 22002-4. Able to be fully integrated with other ISO management systems such as ISO 9001 or ISO 45001 under the Annex SL structure, FSSC can be a great option for those looking for a flexible, rigorous way of demonstrating their food safety commitment to consumers.
ISO 22001 has gained a number of changes and improvements as of its most recent revision in 2018. Strengthened emphasis on management commitment, addition of the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) cycle, and a focus on risk management come together with other parts of the standard to help identify and control food safety hazards and help consumers trust certified products.
