ISO 22000:2018 Certification for Food Safety Management System is a process control system designed to improve quality of the food organizations by identification, evaluation and control of the food safety hazards like physical, chemical, microbiological and other hazards in food production as well as entire food chain. ISO 22000 defines and follows HACCP guidelines, which includes steps designed to prevent problems before they occur and to correct deviations through a systematic way as soon as they are detected. Such preventive control systems with documentation and verification are widely recognized by scientific authorities and international organizations as the most effective approach available for producing safe food.
