Hi everybody.

I’m new to this form and I’d like to introduce myself.

I’m a food technologist and I’m very familiar with ISO22000, IFS, HACCP standards.



I live in Italy, but I will get soon my green card and I plan to move to the US.

Hope that this forum will help me to gather information on food production standards widely accepted in the US market. Any suggestion on where to start?



Regards.



Roberto

Dear RobertoD,

Welcome to the forum ! :welcome:

Hope that this forum will help me to gather information on food production standards widely accepted in the US market. Any suggestion on where to start?


It probably depends on the type of food, whether you are including imported goods and perhaps safety / non-safety aspects. Every food category has it's own specific detailed literature.

If you mean (internal) regulatory standards such as relating to product identities and grades, one jumbo general reference is here -

http://www.fda.gov/R...Act/default.htm

(link from http://en.wikipedia....ion#cite_note-6 )

Another specific (I think) American feature which is mentioned occasionally on this forum is the distinction between Federal and Local Laws which can be complex.

A third encyclopaedic reference on all types of regulatory food aspects appears to be the US "Food Code"

No doubt there are many, many, more :smile:

Kind Regards,

Hi Roberto,

With regards to food manufacturing standards SQF, ISO 22000 & BRC seem to be the most popular standards at the moment.

I agree with Charles and Tony. If you have good knowledge of the major FSMS systems you should do well as they are just begining to take off in the USA.

Keep in touch Roberto and welcoem to the forum.

Regards,
Simon
