A step-by-step recognised capability building programme for food safety systems that supports governments and regulators, suppliers, consumers, retailers, food service providers and brand manufacturers alike. A pathway to GFSI- recognised certification.
The GFSI US - Canada Local Group has refocused to continue GFSI’s efforts in the region. The year 2017 saw the development of a new steering committee which focused on building relationships, setting structure, and writing an operating plan for 2018. This Local Group has three main goals: implement GFSI’s global priorities in North America; build engagement and awareness among companies; and build relationships with government bodies (CFIA, FDA, USDA). There are currently eight steering committee members with active recruitment occurring to engage more fully with Canadian businesses.
