Why use ISO 22000?
ISO 22000 is based off of ISO 9001 and includes supplements from HACCP and other related requirements. It allows for greater flexibility than the standards of the trade associations, however, it is not recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). Please see FSSC 22000 if you are interested in a certification that is GFSI recognized.
