Ensure Feed and Food Safety throughout the Food Chain
Consumers are increasingly looking for assurance that the foods they buy are safe and risk-free. Managing the safety of products has become critical in order to meet their expectations.
Retailers are now requiring their suppliers to demonstrate that they provide safe food products.
For every type of organization, Bureau Veritas Certification offers a wide range of certification services to ensure food safety throughout the food chain.
From animal feed to products sold in supermarkets, including their packaging and transport or storage, our team can help you get compliant with high-quality standards.
Animal Feed Manufacturing
The European Feed Additives Manufacturers Association has issued FAMI-QS (Feed Additive and preMIxture System) to ensure compliance with European regulations.
You are concerned by this standard if you trade or manufacture feed additives or premixtures.
The EFISC (European Feed Ingredients Safety Certification) standard has been developed to harmonize requirements for feed materials.
The EFISC standard is only applicable for feed material producers in sectors concerning starch, oilseed crushing, oil refining and protein meal.
The companies seeking to internationalize their business in Europe must be certified to a standard recognized by the GMP+ International Organization (formerly PDV) .
Choosing which standard and certification scope (production of feed materials, trade, etc.) depends on the organization’s role within the feed chain.
PAS 222 is an industry-specific standard to control product safety in the manufacturing of animal feed. This publicly available standard can be used in combination with ISO 22000 and was created by leading organizations in the animal feed sector.
The ISO 22000 is the first international standard to implement a certified food safety management system.
The ISO 22000 standard covers all processes along the food chain.
The Foundation for Food Safety Certification combined ISO 22000 and ISO/TS 22002-1 and then issued FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification).
This major food safety standard has been benchmarked and approved by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
The SQF Program is a complete food safety and quality certification system.
It is designed specifically for the food industry and can be applied at all levels of the food supply chain: farming, packaging manufacturing, food manufacturing, retail and wholesale, trading, catering, transport, etc.
The IFS is a standard published by the union of German supermarket chains, HDE (Hauptverband des Deutschen Einzelhandels). It has been adopted by the French equivalent, the FCD (Fédération des entreprises du Commerce et de la Distribution).
Any company wishing to supply its food products to concerned retailers must meet the required standards.
Food Packaging Manufacturing
Designed as a complement to the ISO 22000, PAS 223 is an industry-specific standard for food packaging created by leading organizations within the food packaging industry in conjunction with food manufacturers.
The EN 15593 standard specifies the requirements for a hygiene management system designed for manufacturers and suppliers of food packaging, including storage and transportation.
Preventing contamination and spoilage requires good hygiene practices implemented at all stages of the supply chain, including packaging manufacturing.
The Foundation for Food Safety Certification combined ISO 22000 and PAS 223 to issue FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification). This major food packaging safety standard has been benchmarked and approved by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
We also provides supplier audits and hygiene audits that can be tailored to your needs.
