Food Certification

SGS provides the food industry with audit and certification solutions against a variety of standards. In addition to those schemes recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), we certify against a range of other internationally-acknowledged standards.

The standards include:

  • AHA (Allergie, Haut, Asthma – Allergy, Skin and Asthma, for allergen management)
  • BRC IOP Food Packaging and Packaging Materials (British Retail Consortium and The Packaging Society – formerly, the Institute of Packaging)
  • BRC Storage and Distribution
  • Codex Verified Approval Scheme
  • Hygiene Monitored Approval Scheme
  • IFS Broker (International Featured Standard)
  • IFS Logistics
  • ISO 22000 – Food Safety Management
  • ISO 28000 - Supply Chain Security Management
  • ISTA (International Seed Testing Association)
  • Marine Stewardship Council
  • Organic

Wherever you are in the food value chain, we can independently audit your processes and/or systems against the requirements of these world-class standards. Certification helps you and your suppliers adopt the highest standards in food safety, meet your regulatory requirements and contractual obligations, and gain access to global markets.

As a world-leader in food safety audits and certification, we have an international, multi-lingual network of auditors ready to share their expertise and help you raise standards. We can ensure that your food safety solutions and systems are in line with the latest thinking and best practice, so that quality and safety become synonymous with your brand.
