  • Call for Participation in GFSI Working Group | Hygienic Design of Food Facilities and Equipment

    As we move forward with the implementation of food safety programmes, we also need to give more scrutiny to hygienic design of both facilities and equipment for the entire food supply chain through the development of more specific and meaningful standards to ensure food safety. 

    Correct design of food handling and processing equipment as well as food manufacturing facilities is more important than ever before and is addressed in a general manner in most regulatory and industry food safety programmes. As we move forward with the implementation of food safety programmes, we also need to give more scrutiny to hygienic design of both facilities and equipment for the entire food supply chain through the development of more specific and meaningful standards to ensure food safety.

  • Does GFSI Certification Equate to FSMA Compliance?

    Ever since the rules of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) began being published, the industry has questioned its linkage with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certification. As such, a major question has been: “If I am certified to a GFSI scheme, does that mean I will also be compliant with the rules of FSMA?”

    Ever since the rules of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) began being published, the industry has questioned its linkage with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certification. As such, a major question has been: “If I am certified to a GFSI scheme, does that mean I will also be compliant with the rules of FSMA?” The short answer has long been: “You are likely close, but not necessarily completely compliant.” But now, certification to the newly released GFSI Benchmarking Requirements V7 should move food facilities even closer.

  • Food Safety - A Never Ending Journey

    GFSI’s journey began 16 years ago, when a few leading retailers came together over a common desire to get a grip on food safety. They set out to standardize understanding through establishing a benchmark system for certification schemes. With easily comparable quality and safety requirements. Beyond national boundaries, on a worldwide level. Now, GFSI has developed into a thought leader that binds people and organisations together.

  • GFSI - A Tide That Raises All Ships

    The North American meat and poultry industry is complex and highly variable. Companies engaged in this industry understand that consumers increasingly desire meat protein products. As we improve our efficiencies to meet rising demand, we are also improving food safety performance. One of the successful tools being used by Tyson Foods and others to ensure the production of safe meat products is a third-party audit benchmarked by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
