Obtaining ISO 22000 Certification for Excellence in Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS) with Maxicert

Maxicert offers ISO 22000-based Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS) that enable food manufacturers to implement enhanced safeguards against gastroenterological diseases and illnesses. In addition, they benefit from increased consumer awareness and improve their reputation. As food packaging becomes more common in our fast-paced world, analyzing its quality becomes increasingly important.

The 20th century was marked by unprecedented economic transformations and scientific breakthroughs. In the food industry, new technologies flourished as a result of this evolution. With the introduction of sophisticated machine processes, a focus on quality was shifted from taste to quality in the food industry. As a result of inadequate food, severe illnesses and deaths have increased in the 21st century. Control and traceability are more challenging due to globalization and complex supply networks. As part of ISO 22000, food manufacturers are encouraged to adopt techniques that ensure product safety and customer satisfaction.

Any organization in the food system can implement ISO 22000, regardless of size or activity. Among the activities covered are crop cultivation, animal feed manufacturing, food department stores, food service, packaged food manufacturing, and related services like transportation, warehousing, cleaning, and sanitation.

By adopting ISO 22000, organizations can optimize their processes and produce goods that comply with quality standards and requirements. ISO 22000 incorporates the plan-do-check-act (PDCA) cycle and risk-based thinking to encourage organizations to develop food safety policies and set safety objectives. By encouraging communication, consistent behavior, and increased confidence among players in the food industry, ISO 22000 facilitates more effective hazard and risk management.

ISO 22000 FSMS Implementation:

Establishes and maintains appropriate and secure procedures for food production companies, emphasizing proper controls and procedures to ensure food safety. In order to be ISO 22000 certified, an organization must demonstrate independently its standards and competency of its personnel. By implementing globally recognized food safety management procedures, the company builds trust among stakeholders and reduces health risks.
