GMP certification is emerging as a major element of the food industry's complete food safety system. Consumers now place a high value on food safety and quality assurance.
Implementing and certifying your food safety management system with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) requirements through ACS Canada offers numerous benefits that will enhance your business operations and ensure compliance with industry standards.
In today's food industry, consumers place great importance on food safety and quality assurance. GMP is emerging as a vital component of a comprehensive food safety system, and by obtaining GMP certification, you demonstrate your commitment to meeting consumers' expectations and building their trust.
GMP standards are firmly rooted in the Codex Alimentarius Commission, a globally accepted collection of standards, codes of practice, and guidelines for food production and safety. These standards establish essential sanitary conditions throughout the entire food chain, ensuring the creation of safe and consumable food. GMP serves as the foundation for more detailed rules tailored to specific industries.
ISO 22002-1, a part of the Prerequisite Programs on Food Safety, further reinforces GMP principles for materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. This standard provides requirements for establishing, implementing, and maintaining prerequisite programs (PRPs) that monitor food safety hazards.
By certifying your food safety management system with GMP requirements from ACS Canada, you not only elevate your organization's credibility but also gain a significant competitive advantage. This certification not only ensures preparedness for regulatory audits but also positions you favorably for second-party audits conducted by esteemed clients such as COSTCO, Walmart, REAL CANADIAN SUPERSTORE, Save-On-Foods, or Safeway. Achieving this certification serves as a powerful testament to your commitment to regulatory compliance and underscores your profound understanding of the criticality of producing and trading safe food.
