What is the ISO 22000 standard? 


Spoiled food can cause contagious diseases and put human health at risk. The World Health Organisation created the international ISO 22000 standard to ensure food safety throughout the food chain up to the point of the final consumer or point of sale of companies in the agri-food sector.

This standard allows companies to guarantee that they offer safe products and/or services to their clients.

Who can obtain the ISO 22000 certification?


This international standard can be applied to any company that takes part in the food chain, irrespective of their size.

More specifically, the ISO 22000 Certification of Food Safety Management Systems can be obtained by organisations involved in the primary production of food, food producers, retailers, catering companies and companies working in the field of food safety (cleaning and disinfection, transportation, storage and distribution, etc.).


What does the ISO 22000 certification bring to a company?  


Obtaining the ISO 22000 certification helps companies to improve their general performance in the area of food safety. In addition, the companies that have obtained the certification are able to:

  • Better manage and control the food safety risks of every actor in the chain.
  • Demonstrate their compliance with the specific requirements of the Quality Management Systems.
  • Have effective communications with the parties involved in food safety.
  • Increase the trust of their clients and consumers.
  • Integrate the food safety management system with the quality management system of the company (ISO 9001).
  • Obtain a certification recognised in the field.
  • Increase their competitiveness.
