ISO 22000 Food Safety Management

ISO 22000 is an international standard that defines the requirements of a food safety management system covering all organisations in the food chain from "farm to fork”.

What is ISO 22000 Food Safety Management?

ISO 22000 is a truly international standard suitable for any business in the entire food chain, including inter-related organisations, such as producers of equipment, packaging material, cleaning agents, additives and ingredients.

ISO 22000:2005 is also for companies seeking to integrate their quality management system, for example ISO 9001, and their food safety management system.

The standard combines generally recognised key elements to ensure food safety along the food chain, including:

  • Interactive communication
  • System management
  • Control of food safety hazards through pre-requisite programmes and HACCP plans
  • Continual improvement and updating of the food safety management system

What are the benefits of ISO 22000?

  • Introduce internationally recognised processes to your business
  • Give suppliers and stakeholders confidence in your hazard controls (e.g. food hygiene)
  • Put these hazard controls (e.g. food hygiene) in place across your supply chain
  • Introduce transparency around accountability and responsibilities
  • Continually improve and update your system so it stays effective
