The Race to the Top (RTTT) Framework proposes a collaborative enhancement of the oversight of the GFSI ecosystem with the aim of improving trust, transparency and confidence in GFSI-recognised certification and audit outcomes. Additionally, GFSI is seeking to stay true to its core purpose as a benchmarking and harmonisation organisation responsible for the ‘what’ – not the ‘how’ – of food safety.
The first four fundamental features of the RTTT Framework were shaped with the support of a broad range of GFSI stakeholders and GFSI Board member companies, following an extensive consultation that focussed on our benchmarking and harmonisation activities. You can learn more about the process and responses here.
Phase 2 of the RTTT was launched in the Autumn 2020 and is focussed on driving improvements in our capability building tool, the GFSI Global Markets Programme. We are currently consulting on this programme and we would welcome your views through our public consultation here.
