What is IFS?
IFS (International Featured Standards) certification is a widely recognized and respected food safety standard that is used by companies in the food processing industry to demonstrate their commitment to producing safe and high-quality products.
The IFS standard is based on the principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) and covers all aspects of food safety, from raw materials to finished products. The standard includes requirements for food safety management systems, traceability, and product quality, as well as detailed specifications for different types of food products.
To achieve IFS certification, companies must undergo a rigorous audit process that includes on-site inspections, document review, and testing of product samples. The audit is conducted by an independent third-party certification body, which ensures that the company is in compliance with the IFS standard.
IFS certification is becoming increasingly important in the food processing industry, as more and more retailers and food service providers are requiring their suppliers to have this certification. This is because IFS certification provides assurance to customers that the products they are buying are safe and of high quality. Furthermore, IFS certification can help companies to improve their internal processes and increase their competitiveness in the global market.
