    Quality management system implementation and certification is fundamental when it comes to improving the competitiveness of businesses in both national and international markets.
    In the agri-food sector, there are standards for food safety management systems, among which IFS Food is one of the main ones. The primary objectives of this standard are to:

    • Establish a common standard with a uniform evaluation system
    • Ensure greater comparability and transparency throughout the entire supply chain
    • Reduce costs and time for both manufacturers and retailers
    • Work with accredited certification bodies and qualified auditors approved by IFS
