Need food safety advice?
Relax, you've come to the right place…

The IFSQN is a helpful network of volunteers providing answers and support. Check out the forums and get free advice from the experts on food safety management systems and a wide range of food safety topics.

 
We could make a huge list of rules, terms and conditions, but you probably wouldn’t read them.

All that we ask is that you observe the following:


1. No spam, profanity, pornography, trolling or personal attacks

2. Topics and posts should be “on topic” and related to site content
3. No (unpaid) advertising
4. You may have one account on the board at any one time
5. Enjoy your stay!

Hi Simon,

 

GFSI Approved Standard is maybe nearer the actuality. Benchmarked is even nearer in their own terminology maybe. Or since I haven't checked lately, perhaps GFSI are getting into the promotion act as well ?

FSSC 22000 and in my previous role we were SQF L3.  Is it scary that the more you work with food safety standards the more they make sense?

 

Good luck Yong! With all of the information and heads on IFSQN you should do fine :)

While I have worked on and under many SQF systems, my current company thinks GFSI systems are a socialist plot.    Not kidding.   Thank God Tylenol is available in large quantities as well as hair coloring.

Hi All,

 We  are a packaging company and have had BRC " High Hygiene Risk" for Packaging for several years in its various forms. We have just opened a new site (May 2013) and achieved the certification there last month too.

LOL I know all about Hair Dye & Valium! I've been doing BRC since it began; before that EFSIS

 

I've just had my hand forced by a retailer to do the unannounced BRC!

 

I also do Soil Association & Red Tractor

 

In fact I've become quite blasé about audits; they've become virtual a tick list for me.
