Food Manufacturers Have Checklist for International Featured Standards for GFSI Compliance

Westminster, CO, June 02, 2014 --( TraceGains recently made available Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) checklists for Food Manufacturers. The checklists were co-produced with the respective scheme owners to ensure accuracy, including International Featured Standards (IFS).

Since 2003, IFS has been one of the leading global certification standards for the food supply chain. More than 14,000 facilities are certified to one of seven IFS standards throughout the world. Well-written and easy to understand requirements, a practical approach to continuous improvement, and supporting technical tools and materials are all elements of the IFS approach to food safety and quality certification.

IFS standards are GFSI benchmarked, when a GFSI benchmark is available, and provide a high level of confidence to retailers and manufacturers around the world due to rigorous, integrated audit criteria. With IFS, you can count on global acceptance and business improvements driving bottom line performance beyond safety and quality of the food products.
