Many companies are moving to a food safety standard, such as SQF, that is benchmarked under the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).  The purpose is to provide “Safe Food for Consumers Everywhere”.  This is the vision of the Global Food Safety Initiative. 

The Global Food Safety Initiative or GFSI began in 2000 and is a division of the consumer goods forum.  The GFSI is a collaboration of stakeholders throughout the supply chain, with the focus to establish audit scheme guidance to align standards, allowing for global harmonization of food safety standards and provide the framework for emerging suppliers to gain international acceptance. ​The mission for the Global Food Safety Initiative is to “Provide continuous improvement in food safety management systems to ensure confidence in the delivery of safe food to consumers worldwide.”  GFSI establishes audit scheme guidance to ensure the safety of food reaching all consumers, develop efficiencies within the supply change and promote transparency within the supply chain, as well as a harmonization approach to food safety management systems. Another benefit to a GFSI benchmarked audit is the cost savings.  Since there is global acceptance, one of the GFSI audits may eliminate the need for multiple second or third party audits, as GFSI audits are recognized everywhere.

ASI Food Safety can answer your questions about GFSI and the importance of the GFSI audit schemes.  ASI Food Safety is a licensed Certification Body to conduct SQF and are available to you 24 hours a day 7 days a week.  ASI has a knowledgeable food safety compliance staff and can define the steps to SQF Certification. There are several GFSI audit standards that are benchmarked, to include SQF, BRC for Food, BRC for Packaging, IFS, FSSC 22000 to name a few.  For a complete list of benchmarked GFSI standards, you can visit www.mygfsi.com.  This website provides the most current GFSI standards, as well as standards that are in the process of becoming benchmarked.
