What is ISO22000?


ISO22000 certification is an International standard for Food Safety Management systems as it helps organizations in controlling food safety hazards along the food chain. ISO22000 helps in providing safe products to meet both the requirements agreed with the customer and those of applicable food safety regulations

Why ISO22000 is important for your organization?


ISO22000 enhances customer satisfaction through effective control of food safety hazards and it ensures sustainable food safety, which helps in increasing profits and promoting international trade.

ISO 22000 is an international standard that specifies requirements for a food safety management system (FSMS) that an organization can use to ensure the safety of its food products throughout the entire food chain, from production to consumption. The standard is applicable to any organization, regardless of its size, type, or sector, that wants to demonstrate its commitment to food safety and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

However, there are some sectors that have traditionally been more proactive in adopting ISO 22000. These sectors include:

  1. Food and beverage manufacturing: Food and beverage manufacturers have been among the earliest adopters of ISO 22000 to ensure the safety of their products, comply with regulatory requirements, and enhance consumer confidence in their products.

  2. Agriculture and farming: Agricultural and farming organizations, including growers, producers, and suppliers of raw materials for the food industry, have also adopted ISO 22000 to ensure the safety of their products and comply with regulatory requirements.

  3. Food service and catering: Food service providers, including restaurants, catering companies, and hotels, have adopted ISO 22000 to ensure the safety of their food products and provide assurance to their customers.

  4. Retail and distribution: Retailers and distributors of food products have adopted ISO 22000 to ensure the safety of the products they sell, comply with regulatory requirements, and enhance consumer confidence in their products.

  5. Food testing and analysis: Laboratories that test food products for safety, quality, and compliance with regulatory requirements have adopted ISO 22000 to ensure the reliability and accuracy of their testing results.


    Overall, ISO 22000 can be applied to any organization that wants to ensure the safety of its food products throughout the entire food chain, from production to consumption.
