Organisations involved in the food supply chain are facing increasing demands to demonstrate that their management practices and procedures are of a consistently high standard, and to foster a positive food safety and quality culture.
“By combining the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle to manage business risk with HACCP to identify, prevent and control food safety hazards, conformity to ISO 22000 helps organisations to reduce exposure to risk and improve safety, encouraging operational and organisational resilience. Kuehne + Nagel’s achievement demonstrates to customers and suppliers that the organisation is committed to providing safe foods and services that meet statutory and regulatory requirements” said Richard Werran, BSI Group Director, Food EMEA.
“Our customers, and fundamentally, the end consumer, expect each and every single touchpoint of the food supply chain process to be managed and governed in accordance with the highest of standards. As the first organisation to achieve conformity to the revised ISO 22000:2018 standard globally from BSI, Kuehne + Nagel is absolutely delighted to be leading from the front” said Brian Nealon, Kuehne + Nagel UK QSHE Director.
