ISO 22000



The link between ISO & Food

The world population is growing rapidly and many food products repeatedly cross national boundaries to meet our rising demand for food. International Standards help to address this challenge in a safe and sustainable way, through guidance and best practice in food production methods and testing, to promote safety, quality and efficiency across the entire food industry.

What standards does ISO have for food?

Of the more than 21500 International Standards and related documents, ISO has more than 1600 related to the food sector, with many more in development. These cover:

  • Food Products
  • Food Safety Management
  • Microbiology
  • Fisheries and Aquaculture
  • Essential Oils
  • Starch and its by-products

 WHY ISO 22000?

ISO 22000 sets out the requirements for a food safety management system and can be certified to it. It maps out what an organisation needs to do to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe. It can be used by any organisation regardless of its size or position in the food chain.
