Supply Chain - Scopes of Recognition
A Technical Working Group was convened in 2009 to define the food supply chain and its varying scopes. As a result, schemes coming forward for benchmarking against the GFSI Guidance Document can clearly specify the scopes covered by their scheme, thereby facilitating communication on exactly which components of a scheme GFSI had recognised.
Key elements for the below scopes are currently included in the GFSI Guidance Document. There are currently no key elements covering scopes such as Feed, or Transport and Distribution, however in 2012 and 2013 GFSI will be convening working groups to cover all of the scopes that are faded below, so that eventually the entire supply chain is covered by the GFSI Guidance Document requirements.
