Compliance in Food and Beverage Regulations and standards affecting food and beverage manufacturers have grown more prominent in recent times due to a number of food-related incidents that have occurred. The increased emphasis on practicing safe, continually improved production processes has led to the development of standards such as ISO 22000, HACCP and SQF which have become the prominent food quality and food safety frameworks manufacturers need abide by.
Having an automated food quality and food safety management system in place that integrates the principals of ISO 22000, HACCP and SQF within its processes is paramount for any food and beverage manufacturer in today’s market.
ISO 22000, HACCP, SQF & FSMA The ISO 22000 standard works to ensure all procedures carried out within a facility demonstrate a sound commitment to food safety, while HACCP focuses on the preventative identification, analysis and control of biological, chemical and physical hazards. The SQF 1000 and 2000 standards provide a certification recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) that is accepted worldwide and incorporates hazard analysis, risk assessment and proactive prevention strategies. The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the most sweeping reform of our food safety laws in more than 70 years. It was signed into law by President Obama on January 4, 2011 and it aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing it.
