Understanding GFSI and Which Food Safety Standards apply to your Organization

Course Objectives


This information-packed, one-day course provides an overview of the Global Food Safety Initiative—as well as highlighting the essential differences between the major benchmarked international food safety standards (BRC, SQF, IFS and FSSC 22000)—to help executives and managers mindfully determine which Food Safety Standards are the best fit for their organization.

The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) is an extensive collaboration between some of the world’s leading food safety experts from retailer, manufacturer and food service companies, as well as service providers associated with the food supply chain.

Since customers are becoming better educated and more informed and are now requesting retailers and suppliers in all food supply and manufacturing markets to fully comply with one of these standards, how does your organization make the right choice? This course contains a wealth of information, and provides attendees with the essential facts and insights to make sensible choices in considering the right path for their organizations.
