FSSC/ISO 22000

Acquiring certification according to ISO 22000 is a clear statement from a company to its customers communicating that they have a management system for Food Safety in place. ISO 22000 can be applied on every step of the food value chain from ocean/farm to table, including transport enterprises, storage and distribution centrals.

This certification is becoming increasingly important. More and more customers demand documentation to confirm the capability of producing Safe Food, consistently throughout the whole year.

FSSC 22000 is recommended for food manufacturers, providing a framework to efficiently handle the responsibility of the company for Food Safety and quality. The standard is more widely accepted by most grocery chains and industry customers. It is built on requirements according to ISO 22000 and requirements for prerequisites according to ISO 2002-1.

Why be FSSC 22000 certified?

The standard is developed to help organisations establish and continuously improve management systems and good production practice.

FSSC 22000 is:

  • Integrated with other ISO standards, specifications for prerequisites, HACCP, regulations and Codex HACCP principles for implementation of HACCP
  • Recognized by Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)
  • Compatible for integrating system for Food Safety and product quality with other management systems; like environmental control, sustainability, and health and security.
  • Promoting transparency throughout the food value chain
  • Helping organizations implement robust management systems for Food Safety and quality, accepted worldwide.

Aquatiq® may assist with:

MSC

Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification ensures coherence with internationally recognized standards for sustainable fishing and seafood by traceability (through MSC Chain of Custody certification) for wild-caught fish.

MSC certification provides assurance to buyers and consumers that your seafood originates from a well managed and sustainable source. The MSC standard is based on three main principles that every fishery must document that it complies with: sustainable stocks, minimize environmental impact and efficient management.

Aquatiq® may assist with:

  • Certification against the MSC standard through our partnership with the certification body SAI Global

ASC

Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) standards for responsible breeding of aquaculture products promote the most sustainable and socially responsible choice in farmed seafood. This is important to the industry because public awareness will influence consumer demand for responsibly produced aquaculture products.
