Assurance of the safety and quality of food is an important consideration for consumers today. A GMP is an important enhancement to your food safety management system, which increases your customers’ confidence in your commitment to trading and producing safe, high quality food.
Compliance with GMP requirements entails minimum common sense sanitary and processing requirements applicable to all food processing establishments. Many food industry companies have implemented the GMP certification scheme for food processing as the foundation upon which they have developed and implemented other quality and food safety management systems, including HACCP, ISO 22000, SQF and ISO 9001.
A Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification scheme provides independent verification and certification that the basic manufacturing practices and prerequisites necessary for the implementation of an effective Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety program are being followed.
