Your business can demonstrate their food safety awareness and compliance with Food Safety Certification.
Food safety standards ensure safe handling and transportation throughout the entire food industry. The result of unsafe food safety management systems can be extremely hazardous. An internationally recognised food safety certification is the most effective way to demonstrate that your organisation has quality food safety systems in place.
Identifying hazards in food handling procedures and reducing the associated risks ensures a safe working environment, for internal staff as well as consumers. In addition, Food Safety Certification provides a framework for effective communication systems and continual monitoring procedures.
What is food safety certification?
Food safety certification is a third-party assessment of your food handling methods and procedures. The certification is awarded if your business is compliant with the Australian standards and regulations.
What are the benefits of food safety certification?
Food Safety certification is recognition of your business’s compliance with standards and regulations outlined by the Australian government. The certification proves to your customers and stakeholders that your business is dedicated to adhering to the regulations. This adherence ensures the safety of your food products.
What’s the difference between HACCP and ISO 22000?
HACCP (otherwise known as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) is a hazard assessment tool, used to prevent hazards in the production process. ISO 22000 is an international standard, based on general food safety management.
ISO 220000 covers everything from food producers through to organisations participating in the food supply chain. ISO 22000 is best described as being a food management safety system, ensuring every area is to standard, whereas HACCP is an isolated method of ensuring safety.
