DIN EN ISO 22000

ISO 22000: All-round Food Safety Management

Consumers not only expect highest quality products from food manufacturers, they also demand safe food. Standard ISO 22000 therefore covers all stages of the food chain and promotes comprehensive product safety in the food manufacturing sector.

The standard is valid throughout the world, which means that ISO 22000 certificates are also recognised internationally. Above all for customers focussing on export, this is an important argument when selecting suppliers. Added to this is systematic integration of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, which enable you to establish reliable risk management in your company. A particular advantage of DIN EN ISO 22000 is that every organization can install its own tailormade food safety management system and have it certified.
