The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has published a new brochure, ISO & food – Quality and Safety from Farm to Fork, which provides a concise overview of the Standards available to ensure quality and safety in the food industry.
Today more than ever, food products regularly cross national boundaries at every stage of the supply chain. ISO International Standards create confidence in the products we eat or drink by ensuring the world uses the same recipe when it comes to food quality, safety and efficiency.
The brochure highlights the benefits of ISO Standards for industry, regulators, and consumers.
Out of over 19,000 ISO Standards, some 1,000 are dedicated to food and cover subjects as diverse as agricultural machinery, logistics, transportation, manufacturing, labeling, packaging, and storage. These Standards provide benefits for all participants in the supply chain, from farm to transportation and logistics, from manufacturing to retailing and services, from consumers to regulators and analytical laboratories.
