We are currently FSSC 22000 certified. We have an offsite warehouse to store raw ingredients, packaging materials and finished products. It is about 20 minutes away from the production plant.  All the shipping/receiving paperwork is at the warehouse.
My question is if the warehouse will be entering in a certification process separate from the plant certification?
My second question is which certification will good for a low-risk,  room temperature storage warehouse?
Your help will be highly appreciated.

Separate certification.

Would not qualify as multi-site, add-on etc.

I'd go for SQF Storage and Distribution or IFS.

Kind regards,
