Nowaday , food safety

New buzz words: BSE, E-Coli outbreaks, C3H6N6, Di(2On the Retailer association CIES : top of mind survey in 2004 and 2005 => Food Safety (1st concern) Media and politican : extensive coverage of food safety stories On peoples minds: Consumer nervousness On Governments mind: Increasing regulatory pressure In operation mind: Increasingly complex global supply chains ??

The Catastrophe .of large dairy company -A large Japanese dairy group has suffer from food poisoning , the result is ..

And their consequences

14,000+ people suffered from vomiting and diarrhea Product recalled Retailers refuse to stock any of the companys products 21 factories temporarily closed 30% drop in share value Sales drop from $US13.2b to $US11.5 b Profit goes from $US230m profit to negative $US538m Downgrading of credit rating 1,300 people loss their job (20% reduction) Executive salaries cut by 30%

Ensuring Food Safety means managing a supply chain...

...that is: Global Complex Non competitive Moving and changing ALL the time

Proliferation of standards in the Supply Chain

Storage, Retail and Distribution

HACCP - based on Codex Alimentarius Guidelines, USFDA 21 CFR part 110,123, Singapore standard (SS 444), Canadian Food Inspection Agencys Food safety Enhancement Program (FSEP) ETC. HACCP Accredited RVA scheme SQF/BRC/IFS- Retailer scheme, based on HACCP and ISO 9001:2008 Eurepgap GMP/GTP/GHP/GDP- good hygiene practice Non security standards Organics, FairTrade, etc.

Food supply chain management systems are not integrated

Audits by customer Value adding #1 ISO9000 BRC Transport #1 ISO9000 GTP Cleaning Services CoC FSC Packaging BRC Transport #2 Internal QMS Value adding #2


Storage ISO9000 IFS

Transport #3 HACCP




Food Chain Element

Traceability ?

=> No overall product control

Management System

Total Supply Chain control? => No overall management Communications ? Mutual recognition? => No overall reaction capability => Confusion and over-work

The problem...
Multiple systems client(2nd party) / Certification body (3rd party) Often (always?) focusing on the same thing Countless audits, procedures, documents, manuals etc. Lack of recognition of any single scheme High costs of setting up and maintaining multiple systems for producers, transformers, retailers AND clients Confusion, both internal and external Continued disruption of business

High costs passed to consumers AND reducing overall profits Small producers driven out of business due to too high costs Consumers confused regarding the value of quality / security labels

The food supply chain need

ONE Management Systems that cover all management issues / activities of the food supply chain
Integrating the approach to food safety over business processes Mutual recognition (if possible) of existing standards Can be traceable in supply chain system Recognized and implementable throughout the supply chain Based on an auditable standard allowing compliance verification Single management system planning / review session Communication food hazard/risk through out the supply chain

An effective integrated food safety system must cover...

Management responsibility ( Commitment, policy, objective, resource, documentation etc) Hazard management: recognized HACCP approach and other hazard management system Traceability
Product items Through the whole value chain

between all elements of the system down to the consumer


ISO 22000 the answer.

Goals To harmonize at a global level the requirements for food safety management throughout the food chain To be used by organizations that seek more focused, coherent and integrated food safety management system than normally required by law. Auditable standard

ISO 22000, a business management tool to...

identify your impact on the food safety control / reduce food safety hazards ensure legal compliance manage Food safety risk reduce costs thanks to more efficient systems continuously improve business performance in line with the food safety policy and objectives. Can be implemented to different units in the supply chain


ISO22000 main benefit: integrated communication

Crop producers
Producers of pesticides, fertilizers and veterinary drugs Food chain for the production of ingredients and additives Transport and storage operators Producers of equipment

Regulatory authorities

Feed producers Primary food producers food producers 2nd food processors Wholesalers Retailers

Producers of cleaning agents Producers of packaging materials Services providers

other supplying food chains



Align with other management system standard e.g. ISO9000 Integrate with existing related management system requirements Utilize existing management system to establish a food safety management system Apply independently Integrate the principle of HACCP and application steps of CODEX. Integrate requirements of existing programs single audits / single management system Provide organization with freedom to choose the necessary method to fulfill the requirements Allow small and/or less developed organization to implement an externally developed system

Demonstrate compliance to regulations and legislation on food safety Provide confidence to customers, consumers, stakeholders etc. Link food safety to business processes Require continuous improvement Provide recognition throughout the supply chain as single standard approach to Food Safety

ISO 22000 controlled and aligned under internationally recognized accreditation and certification requirements AND... ...can be audited against
