Food Safety – Going the extra mile with ISO 22000 recognition and beyond
By far the greatest challenge for an enterprise involved in the business of food, is maintaining the quality of the food itself through its lifecycle. An enterprise involved in manufacturing food or plating it up for consumption has to essentially manage the quality and thus the safety of the food for its consumer. A solid food management system implementation goes a long way in guaranteeing sustainability for the business enterprise in the long run. You may be located anywhere in the food cycle, be it as a manufacturer of seeds, harvesting in a farm or literally cooking up tasty dishes at your restaurant – the ISO 22000 standard that addresses the issue of food safety management.
ISO 22000 – Recognition
WHO estimates that more than 200 diseases spread from poor food handling practices alone. The ISO 22000 Certification is an index of the highest international standard of food safety that you can implement in your organization. If you are a food maker and if you wish to be recognized by Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), then you may want to implement FSSC 22000 Certification, which is a Food Safety System Certification for your organization.
Enterprises that have implemented ISO 22000 have seen a drastic turnaround in their businesses. The greatest benefit of this implementation is that you embrace a preventive approach as against a damage-control approach towards hygiene and safety, which can have a positive impact on your bottom line. Besides, once implemented and practiced, you can focus all your energies towards running and enhancing your core business priorities.
Considering that the food chain works on a cascading model, if you are at the top of the food chain, it is all the more critical that you keep contamination at bay, else, the quality issue will cascade down the chain. Not that the criticality of hygiene diminishes if you are in the middle or bottom of the chain. For instance, if you are into packaging or shelving, the quality management process which has been religiously maintained thus far, would be compromised solely because of your inefficiency.
A recall of your product from the market or a rejection or return from your client can dent the image of your organization in the marketplace.
In today’s globalized, competitive economy, the ISO 22000 certification stands you apart, giving you the edge of transparency and commitment.
