The New GFSI GMaP™

What it is

The new GFSI Global Markets Programme, GmaP™ is a programme specifically designed to assist Food Business Operators (FBOs) in addressing supply chain issues to self-assess their food safety capabilities based on CODEX Alimentarius.

Why it Matters

Focused on primary production and manufacturing activities, the new GFSI GMaP™ contains a toolkit which includes a food safety checklist and associated protocols, and training and competency frameworks. These are free to use and download, in the true spirit of the GFSI mission of ‘Safe Food for People Everywhere’.

A Commitment to Food Safety Capability-Building

Part of a bolder vision for GFSI to support future food-safety capability-building, the new GFSI GMaP™ toolkit forms the inaugural part of an ambitious three-year transition plan by GFSI to further support FBOs in their food safety journey, in line with the transformational framework unveiled during the GFSI Conference in Atlanta 2023.

GFSI GMaP™ is built on shared principles:

  • Strengthening food safety networks
  • Collectively building a global food safety community, serving joint concerns
  • Collaboration across barriers and borders
  • Driving GFSI’s shared mission ‘Safe Food for People Everywhere.’

Is This a Certification Programme?

There are multiple ways that FBOs are driven to evidence their food safety capabilities. The GFSI GMaP™ toolkit is not itself a food safety standard and should not form the basis of any food safety audit.

Utilised as part of a wider set of food safety protocols, use of GMaP™ can demonstrate a commitment to enhancing the user’s business capability to trade internationally, or domestically, with current partners, CGF members – and beyond.
