ISO 22000 FSMS Consultancy Services

Demand for safe food by the consumer has led to the development of various food safety standards. Although there are various approaches to ensuring food safety, ISO has harmonized the standards for food safety for international applicability under the 22000 family of standards.

The standard is complimentary to ISO 9001, in that ISO 22000 addresses specifically the issues relating to food safety and uses an approach that can be integrated with that of ISO 9001. ISO22000 is not a replacement for ISO9001, however businesses in the food sector may see it as having greater commercial importance to their business than ISO 9001, particularly as there is increasing pressure on the food industry to demonstrate that it is effectively managing food safety, following the highly publicized food scares around the world.
