The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is transforming the US food safety system into one that is based on the prevention of foodborne illnesses. It will be a system in which the food industry systematically puts in place measures proven effective in preventing contamination. Having a GFSI recognized certification can be important to a company that is selling to one of the major retailers and is obliged to comply with FSMA requirements.
Why Should You Attend:
The importance of understanding GFSI requirement is undeniable for suppliers who plan to sell to large retailers.
GFSI “benchmarks” food safety standards, assessing them against a set of criteria to ensure the core of the standards are equivalent and certification will be acceptable. The objective is “Once certified, accepted everywhere” eliminating the time expense involved in duplication of audits. Many retailers and food manufacturing companies are requesting that suppliers become certified to a GFSI recognized Standard. It is also important to know which GFSI standard applies to your industry.
Due to complex challenges in today’s food supply chain, many of the global’s largest food retailers and are mandating supplier certification to Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) schemes, which include SQF, BRC, IFS, FSSC, GLOBALG.A.P. and BAP and CanadaGAP.
It is critical to understand how to select the right standard for your organization. In addition to know the benefits and the selection criteria. Moreover, It is critical to identify the scheme documents that apply to your business.
