  • 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.

  • Talking to FDA: See you in Costa Mesa, Rutherford and Detroit!

    As food safety professionals and scientists, we often are preoccupied checking equipment, reviewing lab stats and talking to suppliers and staff, and fail to share both our stories and successes. The same is true on an industry level with GFSI in Washington, D.C...

    As food safety professionals and scientists, we often are preoccupied checking equipment, reviewing lab stats and talking to suppliers and staff, and fail to share both our stories and successes. The same is true on an industry level with GFSI in Washington, D.C. and state capitals where casual reference to GFSI in the marketplace often triggers a blank stare among government regulators and legislators, who are similarly talking to one another in their own silo-ed conversations. But, that’s changing.
