It is with pleasure that the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) announces that the IFS Broker Standard Version 3 is now recognised against Version 7.2 of the GFSI Benchmarking Requirements.
IFS issued a new version of their Broker Standard in June this year and very quickly expressed their desire to maintain GFSI recognition. At GFSI, we are always delighted when Certification Programme Owners maintain their recognition as they update their programmes. We see this as part of our continuous collaborative effort to raise and harmonise food safety standards globally.
“IFS appreciates the GFSI benchmarking and recognition of the IFS Broker Standard. GFSI is a kind of reconfirmation that our working groups are on the right path. It’s also a great opportunity to expand the network and to get ideas from other regions in the world,” said Stephan Tromp, Managing Director, IFS. “At the end of the day, the GFSI Benchmarking Requirements and the guidance documents reflect the ideas of food safety experts around the globe. That is, for IFS, a huge input for our own standards.”
Congratulations to the IFS team on this latest recognition and for doing their part in driving best food safety management practices throughout the global supply chain.
