ISO 22000 Food Safety Management Systems
ISO 22000 Food Safety Management Systems is an international certification standard that defines the requirements of food safety management systems all over the world. Since ISO 22000 is a generic food safety management standard it can be used by any organization directly or indirectly involved in the food chain including farms, fisheries, dairies, meat processors, manufacturers of soups, snacks, bread, cereal, beverages, canned and frozen food, etc.
as well as food service providers such as restaurants, fast-food chains, hospitals and hotels. Supporting services are also important, including providers of food transportation, storage, and distribution, catering services, product suppliers for equipment, additives, raw materials, cleaning and sanitizing products and packaging. If your products touch the food industry or the food we eat, part or all of the ISO 22000 requirements will apply.
