Today, we’re talking about how ISO 9001 can benefit food production companies! Did you know that there have been laws present in Britain since 1266 to help regulate food production? These laws were initially implemented to protect two classic British staples – bread and beer! Since then, we’ve come a long way in food safety and regulatory practices.
When used alongside the standard, required food hygiene practices, ISO 9001 can be the key to high-quality production of food products. ISO 9001 uses a continual development mindset and risk prevention tools to ensure that at every single stage, production is monitored to avoid recalls and long-term issues such as damage to brand reputation and legal disputes. Our expert consultants will work with you to ensure you have identified all potential risks and implement strategies to avoid them ever happening.
ISO 9001 is a great certification for Food and Beverage companies, as it promotes brand security and keeps consumers safe and satisfied with products that can be trusted. But what are the detrimental effects of not ensuring quality? Take supermarket giant, Tesco, for example. They were fined £7.56 million for selling out of date food, damaging their reputation.
9001 requires companies to take accountability for their quality management systems and constantly review the structures that are in place. Management is required to commit to a Quality Management System and to ensure that it is effective to the end product. From this commitment, the overall operating costs of the company can be reduced, and efficiency improved! Additionally, your business may be able to target new clients through the demonstration of compliance in having ISO 9001.
