Food Safety Certification Worldwide

Current (August 2013) List of Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Certification Scheme Owners:

The list keeps growing. See More:


  1. I don't think you can pick one GFSI-benchmarked standard as the "best fit" for food industry companies. The appropriate standard in each case is market-driven, dependent in a great part by supplier-chain requirements and targeted markets.

  2. It would be very interesting to have a recognized worldwide standard for food safety instead of the bunch of paper we are seeing nowadays. I strongly and personally make emphasis in FSSC 22000:2010 (ISO 22000:2005 + ISO/TS 22002-1:2009 and the draft ISO/DTS 22001-4). My reason to prefer it, is the combination between the management activities ISO 22000 + the PRP + the HACCP Plan, and furthermore, highligthing food defense in the last part of the PRP.
