With more and more food safety incidents occurring across the world due to poor security and administrative controls, it is imperative for the food industry to implement a strong and robust management system to control and demonstrate a Food and drink defence management system.

The main highlights of this standard

  1. TACCP – Threat Assessment Critical control point. Although most food companies possess a HACCP, this tool revolves around the various vulnerabilities and methodologies to control the same. TACCP is carried out by a team from Security, HR and Administrator to understand the various possibilities of threat and control of the same.
  2. Understanding the attacker – From Internal employees to Interested parties, motive of these attackers could be from sabotage to money extortion.
  3. Review of controls on assessment. – All controls needs to be assessed and improved over time to maintain low incidents and provide safe food to consumers.

FSSAI and ISO 22000 Version 5.1 Food Safety Management System

|
FSSAI, ISO 22000

FSSAI, ISO 22000

ISO 22000 Food safety management system revolves around Statutory and regulatory requirements laid down by FSSAI. The following recent publications indicate the way the regulation is trying to cover all food industries in its gamut of implementation.

Some of the eye openers which will certainly lead to ISO 22000 Certification of various industries are Hoteliers, Bakers, Food Packers, Spice packing.

Food and Safety administration has warned hoteliers and bakery owners that they will face proceedings under the FSSAI Act if they sell misbranded, substandard and unsafe food items to consumers.

Food and Drug administration has found that packaged foods have more than five grams of salt, according to recent research. This poses a serious risk to the health of people, by consuming high sodium diet. It is recommended for consumers and manufacturers to follow the FSSAI requirements of additives and ingredients. This will not only help consumers in knowing the nutrition facts but also supports in implementing a strong ISO 22000 Food safety management system.

Food Safety & Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), in its efforts to streamline the enforcement with use of technology, has decided to ask FBOs to put ‘display boards’ in their premises which will tell customers what these FBOs do when it comes to food safety. This will compliment organisations in initiating a better FSMS Food safety management system such as ISO 22000, FSSC 22000, BRC, SQF.
