We are FSSC 22000 and ISO 22000 Certified!
Updated: Dec 14, 2020
In today's post we will explain more about FSSC 22000 and ISO 22000 certification, and why they are so important!
Last week we finally received our FSSC 22000 and ISO 22000 certificate, we went through the DNV (internationally recognised accrediting company) audit in early October and now we can say that we officially have the certification. Our company has spent 2 years preparing very hard to obtain this certification. We had to change our culture, our physical structure, we did training with our employees and we invested every possible minute in the preparation of this audit.
Now you must be wondering, why all this? For you who still do not fully understand food safety, here is a brief explanation. FSSC 22000 is one of the main international certifications that attest that the food being consumed is safe, that is, free of any physical, chemical, biological, radiological or allergenic hazards. Thus, the consumer will know that the product does not cause any damage to his health.
The FSSC 22000 and ISO 22000 certifications are the way the international market understands that the supplier company of the product is offering safety to its final consumers, and thus considerably reducing the risk of some food contamination.
To complement this, ISO 22000, like FSSC 22000, will guarantee international food safety and applies to any company that is part of the food chain, from rural producers to packagers and outsourcers, so the two together bring great safety to those who are selling the food, because they can guarantee high quality products, as well as those who are buying it, since the risk of there being something wrong with the food is minimal.
Now that you understand more about food safety and its importance, always seek to buy FSSC 22000 and ISO 22000 certified food. You can also access the link below and be taken directly to the FSSC 22000 certification website, and there you will see a list of all the companies in the world that have this certification.
