IFS Global Markets

Food Safety

The IFS Global Markets Standard focuses on food safety and hygiene in the food processing sector. It includes basic and intermediate clauses that are similar to the high-level clauses described in the IFS Food Standard.

This standard only applies to companies that process food or package individual food products. The standard is only applicable when a product is "processed" or when there is a risk of contamination between products during primary packaging.

Once certified for IFS Global Markets, one MUST, over a maximum period of 3 years, progress to certification for IFS Food.
