Quality IFS

The demand for food safety grows. Consumers and authorities increasingly demand that the food we all eat must be of high quality and high safety. If problems occur the error source is quickly found and repaired. The requirements are initially aimed primarily at retail, but from there they spread throughout the food chain to food processing industry, primary producers and transporters.

What is the International Food Standard (IFS)? IFS Food is a standard for auditing of establishments processing food or food packages in bulk. IFS Food can only be used where the product is "processed or handled," or if there is a risk of product contamination during the first pack. IFS was launched to enhance food safety. Regular audits ensure retailers and ultimately the customer that the facilities, rules of hygiene, education and training meet the established requirements for HACCP.
