GFSI Global Markets Working Group
For owners of small- and medium-scale farms or businesses from developing countries and even OECD countries, market opportunities often exist within formal supply chains where entry requirements are high. These small companies do not necessarily have access to the expertise, technical and financial resources to meet these requirements in terms of food safety.
The Global Markets working group has developed a comprehensive step-by-step toolkit to guide small and/or less developed businesses as well as producers through a programme that will drive the continuous improvement process in food safety management systems and ultimately help them achieve certification against a GFSI recognized scheme.
Once completed, the toolkit will be comprised of:
- Basic and Intermediate Level Checklists for Primary Production and Manufacturing
- Protocol and Flow Chart
- Basic and Intermediate Level Assessor Guideline
- Assessment Report and Corrective Action Follow Up Form
