Food is an integral element of human survival. However, the consequences of unsafe food can be serious which is why ISO’s food safety management standard helps an organization to identify and control food safety hazards. As many of today’s food products repeatedly transcend national boundaries, international standards are needed to ensure the safety of the global food supply chain. FSMS maps out what action an organization needs to undertake to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards and ensure that safe food is available at all times to its customers. It can be used by any organization regardless of its size or position in the food chain. In addition to making the new version of ISO 22000 easier to integrate with other ISO management systems, it also introduces the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle and risk-based thinking. By combining PDCA and risk-based thinking, the standard provides a framework for an organization to manage business risks with HACCP to identify, prevent, and control food safety hazards.
ISO 22000 projects out what an organization is supposed to do to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe. FSMS provides various benefits to an organization, some of which are listed below:
