For those who aren’t steeped in GFSI Certification, it stands for Global Food Safety Initiative. It is a nonprofit organization established as part of Belgian law and is being adopted globally as a benchmark for food safety and quality.
It is also part of ISO 22000 standards. One of the objectives is to align food safety and quality standards to reduce food recalls and improve food safety and protection through the global supply chain. This standard has been around for about 10 years but is becoming more common in the last couple of years in the United States.
