FOOD HEALTH CERTIFICATION THAT MEETS THE REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS OF THE FOOD AND AGRICULTURE SECTORS

YOUR CHALLENGE

Food & agriculture industry professionals must demonstrate safe, responsible practices and full product traceability and achieve compliance to increasingly stringent industry and regulatory standards. With today’s complex, globalised supply chains, delivering on these expectations is more challenging than ever.

Ultimately, consumers and regulators want to know where food comes from, what it is made of and how it was processed. Our certification services confirm your products’ safety and quality.

 

HOW BUREAU VERITAS SUPPORTS YOU

Bureau Veritas food and agriculture certification services allow you to meet the highest safety and quality standards, fulfil your regulatory requirements and gain access to international markets.

ISO 22000 (GMP, HACCP) AND FSSC 22000: DEMONSTRATE FOOD SAFETY

ISO 22000 is a food safety management system standard that covers the entire supply chain. Proactive food safety management along the supply chain is key to effectively mitigating risk and optimizing efficiency. Certification of your Food Safety Management System to ISO 22000 by Bureau Veritas enables you to demonstrate that your commitment to food safety exceeds regulatory requirements, and incorporates Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP).

Bureau Veritas Certification Holding has received the upgrade of the global UKAS accreditation for ISO 22000: 2018. Bureau Veritas Certification team all over the regions is now ready to support you in your ISO 22000:2018 transition.

FSSC 22000  is a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)  approved food safety standard based on ISO 22000, required by many of the world’s major retailers. Our global team of food and agriculture safety experts can audit your business to these standards and provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to earn certification.

BRC AND IFS: ENSURE FOOD SAFETY AND QUALITY

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) standard and International Food Standard (IFS) are food quality and safety certifications designed by industry trade groups. Many major retailers across the UK, Germany and France require BRC and IFS certification of their suppliers. Certification to these standards helps you access international markets, strengthen your relationships with distributors and minimise food safety risk.

GLOBALG.A.P.: RECOGNITION FOR RESPONSIBLE AGRICULTURE AND AQUACULTURE

GLOBALG.A.P. is an internationally recognised set of food production safety and quality standards, covering both agriculture and aquaculture. Certification to GLOBALG.A.P. demonstrates a commitment to Good Agricultural Practices (GAP): food safety, sustainability and worker and animal welfare. With retailers across Europe, Asia and the Americas increasingly requiring the certification, GLOBALG.A.P., is key to securing access to global markets.

FAMI-QS AND GMP+: QUALITY ASSURANCE FOR FOOD OF ANIMAL ORIGIN

Animal feed has a major impact on the quality and safety of meat, poultry, dairy, fish, eggs and other foods of animal origin. FAMI-QS and GMP+ are international feed safety and quality standards.

GMP+ is a global scheme for the assurance and improvement of feed safety along the entire supply chain.

FAMI-QS is a European standard for manufacturers of feed additives and components.

Certification to these standards will not only improve your market access and demonstrate a commitment to quality to retailers, but it will also help you optimise your yield and efficiency.

MSC AND ASC: SUSTAINABLE, RESPONSIBLE SEAFOOD

Global demand for seafood is on the rise, but overfishing and destructive fishing practices are depleting fish populations.  Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)  certification ensures that wild seafood has been caught using sustainable fishing practices. Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC)  certification attests to the sustainable aquaculture of farmed seafood. We provide certification services for these and other seafood standards, partnering with you to ensure quality, safety and sustainability along the entire supply chain.

CULTIVATING SUSTAINABILITY IN FOOD & AGRICULTURE

THE WORLD POPULATION IS GROWING, AND THE QUESTION OF HOW TO FEED BILLIONS OF PEOPLE SUSTAINABLY IS INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT.

RSPO CERTIFIED PALM OIL

Palm oil can be found in a wide variety of products, from food and cosmetics, to laundry detergent and toothpaste. However, palm oil that is not farmed sustainably has a devastating impact on the environment, wildlife and local communities. Biodiversity and habitat destruction, soil erosion, water pollution and deforestation and labor abuse are just a few of the consequences of non-sustainable palm oil agriculture. Bureau Veritas is accredited to provide Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RPSO) certification and supply chain assessments. Certification to RSPO palm oil standards enables you to demonstrate that the palm oil in your products is sourced responsibly.
