Demonstrate your commitment to ensuring safe, responsible and sustainable food safety through certification.

Food handling is a complex chain of processes with the potential to involve dozens of touchpoints and associated hazards. Having robust food safety systems in place, verified by a globally recognised certification body, is critical to not only ensuring food safety but demonstrating your organisation’s dedication to safe, responsible and sustainable food production.

Food safety certification indicates that your business is compliant with the food safety standards that ensure you protect your brand reputation as well as your consumers.

By identifying hazards in food handling procedures and reducing the associated risks, you will provide your staff with a safer working environment. In addition, food safety certification provides a framework for effective communication systems and continuous monitoring procedures.

Overview

At each stage of the food handling process, there are potential hazards. With biological, chemical and physical hazards ever-present from production to processing, packaging and distribution with so many touchpoints there are dozens of opportunities for hazards to impact the quality and safety of your food products.

Food safety certification is a third-party assessment of your food handling methods and procedures. The certification is awarded if your business is compliant with Australian standards and regulations.

QMS provides assessment and certification services that will help you achieve HACCP and ISO 22000.
