“By pursuing and achieving FSSC 22000 certification, we are further demonstrating our deep commitment to food safety for our customers,” Stated Shah as he received the award. We assure our customers of food safety in the bread industry,” he added
FSSC 22000 certification requires that providers undertake a thorough analysis of the processes and related hazards to identify food safety risks and implement measures to eliminate those risks, including controls for food defense and food fraud to protect the consumer.
FSSC 22000 certification also helps prevent illness and product recalls.
