GFSI Technical Working Groups (TWG) bring together volunteer food industry experts from around the world to work on a range of topics that have been prioritised by the GFSI Board. Each group has a specific mandate to deliver on within a defined time period. Their goal is to help GFSI pursue its key objectives by delivering credible solutions and insight into strategic food safety issues.


GFSI Technical Working Groups are parity based and are composed of technical experts from retailers, manufacturers, food service operators, service providers, certification programme owners, certification bodies, accreditation bodies, academia, and industry associations. Priority is given to candidates from CGF member companies.


Calls for participation are made to all GFSI stakeholders when a new group is launched. Groups are only open to a limited number of applicants and selection criteria are defined based on the needs of each project. To receive announcements about new groups, please make sure you are following GFSI News, emailings, LinkedIn Group and Twitter feed.
