GFSI Benchmarking Progress

In the GFSI Guidance Document Sixth Edition, GFSI committed to full transparency throughout its benchmarking process. As food safety management schemes are submitted to GFSI for benchmarking, their progress through the various stages of the benchmarking process can be tracked here. A news release will be sent out once schemes have been successfully recognised by GFSI, and if you do not already receive GFSI news releases and event invitations, please send your full contact details to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
