An article I read on your website about the ISO 22000 standard says it applies to the whole of the food sector [including equipment producers]. We are a small family owned manufacturer of food processing and testing equipment; we were pencilled to start a program for ISO 9000 registration later this year, however am now unsure which way to go. Is ISO 22000 relevant to our type of business?
ISO 22000 is therefore designed to allow all types of organization within the food chain to implement a food safety management system. These range from feed producers, primary producers, food manufacturers, transport and storage operators and subcontractors to retail and food service outlets - together with related organizations such as producers of equipment, packaging material, cleaning agents, additives and ingredients.
