What is FSSC 22000 and why is it important?
The Food Safety System Certification, otherwise known as FSSC, is designed to ensure that agricultural organisations are supplying food, beverages, packaging materials and ingredients that are 100% safe for consumption. Having FSSC 22000 under your belt means not only are you meeting the highest global standards, but your customers can be confident in their decision to purchase from you.
In order to maintain super-high safety levels which are deemed compliant, you need to undergo regularly scheduled audits which focus around three requirements:
This investigates how you manage internal and external communication alongside supply chain requirements and improvements.
PRPs aim to ensure that food manufacturers have programs in place to ensure hazards can be avoided.
These are additional specific requirements related to FSSC, including processes around product labelling and food fraud prevention.
To understand FSSC 22000 in its entirety, we recommend downloading the requirements for certification.
These processes need to work together in order to control and minimise any potential food safety hazards. So, whether you’re a seasoned audit-goer or you’re preparing for your first one, we’ll talk you through how our software will help you ace your next assessment.
Breeze through your FSSC 22000 certification
When it comes to achieving FSSC 22000 greatness, you need to ensure that you’re completely prepared for the audit. There’s no point scoring or second chances here, if your food manufacturing facility isn’t up to scratch, you won’t get that certification. Don’t let that worry you though, as our digital task lists will keep you on top of everything, and all the information is in the one place – what’s easier than that?
To make sure you can perform all the internal checks required, you might appreciate our software’s ability to log, communicate and stay on top of general issues and maintenance within your facility. By assigning the necessary issues to the right staff members, there’s always accountability, plus they can easily let you know when everything’s fixed, or whether further support is needed.
Create a digital FSSC 22000 checklist
Our software is the ultimate digital checklist, so not only can you rest assured you won’t forget anything, but you simply can’t lose it either.
Everyone has access so keeping on top of team comms is incredibly easy (especially useful if your food manufacturing facility is on the larger side), and the ability to log equipment checks and/or faults means your production line has the best chance of staying fault-free too!
