Food safety management



Identification, control and management of food safety hazards. It assures safe food production and provides costumer confidence in the product. ISO 22000 is combined with ISO management standard – ISO 9001, HACCP principles and Good Manufacturing Principles. In general, standard establishes requirements for organizations in the food chain, “farm to fork”. ISO 22000 provides a layer of reassurance within the global food supply chain, helping products cross borders and bringing people food that they can trust.

The structure of the standard is comparable to the standard  ISO 9001 .

Emphasis is placed primarily on the system side, on the principles  HACCP  and supportive safety measures such as good operating practice (GMP), good agricultural practice (GAP), good veterinary practice (GVP), good hygiene practice (GHP), good distribution practice (GDP), good sanitation practice (GSP), etc. .

What do ESG and ISO 22000 have in common?

In which ESG aspect should I report ISO 22000? This question does not have a definite answer, because it depends on what exactly the organization produces, what is its role in the food industry. In general, it can be said that ISO 22000 is most concerned with the social pillar of ESG, as it focuses on protecting the health of consumers. ISO 22000 can also have an impact on the environmental pillar of ESG with regard to the use of ecological raw materials, the reduction of food waste and greenhouse gas emissions or with regard to the possible support of sustainable agriculture. Within G, we touch on topics such as transparency, ethics and responsibility towards interested parties and especially consumers.
