FSSC 22000 – Food Safety System Certification Scheme

Innovaces serves as a reliable partner for food organizations, including food processors, distributors, retailers, and wholesalers, supporting them across the entire supply chain to achieve FSSC 22000 certification. We support you to establish an effective systemic approach, combining consulting, gap analysis, pre-auditing, second-party supplier auditing, and a wide range of training and workshops focused on key areas such as food allergens, food fraud, food defense, and food safety management certification.

The FSSC 22000 certification scheme is built upon the globally recognized ISO 22000 standard, supplemented by technical standards such as ISO TS 22002-1 for food manufacturing and ISO TS 22002-4 for packaging manufacturing. It also aligns with other important standards like ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, incorporating the ISO High-Level Structure for seamless integration with existing management systems.

This certification is specifically designed for the food, feed, packaging manufacturing, storage and distribution, catering, and retail/wholesale sectors. While previous versions mainly focused on food manufacturers, the latest version has expanded its scope to include other segments of the supply chain, making it more comprehensive and relevant. Importantly, FSSC 22000 is acknowledged by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), a widely recognized benchmark for food safety management systems.

In addition to certification support, Innovaces offers a range of advisory and consulting services to assist businesses in meeting the requirements of FSSC 22000. Our expert team provides guidance on implementing effective food safety management systems, conducting gap analysis to identify areas of improvement, performing pre-audits to ensure readiness, and conducting second-party supplier audits to enhance supply chain integrity.

Furthermore, our comprehensive training programs and workshops cover various critical aspects, including food allergens, food fraud, food defense, and food safety management certification. These educational initiatives are designed to enhance knowledge and skills, ensuring that businesses have the necessary tools and expertise to navigate the certification process successfully.
