Certification of your food safety management system as being in line with HACCP principles demonstrates your commitment to consistency, continual improvement and customer safety and satisfaction. These are tangible business benefits that play an important part in building resilience and sustainable business performance. The HACCP methodology is a structured, preventive approach to food safety that optimizes efforts to provide the consumer with safe food. It is mandatory in several countries, including the UAE, US and within the EU.
Consumers are perpetually seeking healthy, safe, environmentally and ethically responsible food options. This is driving tremendous growth in the organic food market. “Organic” is a labeling term that refers to food and agricultural products produced in strict accordance with a specific set of production standards. Though organic food certification differs from region to region, they typically cover the entire value chain, from production, to processing, to distribution.
Evolving market demands and regulatory frameworks are making it more critical than ever to be able to prove where your food products contain, where they come from and how they are processed. With recalls on the rise, improper food labelling can spell major financial and reputational consequences for your brand. WECERT provides a variety of food product certifications that enable food industry players to earn consumer trust, manage risk and achieve regulatory compliance. These include GMO-free, Gluten-free, allergen, Label Rouge , origin denomination (e.g. PDO, PGI , IGP, etc.), Organic and other food product labels and marks of conformity.
FSSC 22000 is a food safety certification scheme based on the existing internationally recognized standard ISO 22000 and complemented by technical standards, such as ISO TS 22002-1 for food manufacturing and ISO TS 22002-4 for packaging manufacturing. It is also fully consistent with other standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (including the alignment with ISO High Level Structure).
The ISO 22000 standard is compatible and harmonized with other international management system standards, including ISO 9001. It is ideal for integration with existing management systems and processes.
ISO 22000 is applicable to all organizations directly or indirectly involved in the food value chain. This includes producers of packaging or detergents, suppliers of cleaning services, pest control, or industrial laundry services. It allows assessment and demonstrates conformity of the product in relation to food safety and control of food safety hazards.
