- Enables you to demonstrate a commitment to food safety
- Conveys a degree of confidence required by consumers, retailers and buyers within the food industry
- Provides buyers, consumers, government enforcement and trade agencies with justified assurance that control systems are in place to assure the safe production of food
- Regular assessments help you to continually monitor your food safety system
