FSSC 22000 is managed by Foundation FSSC 2000 and governed by an independent Board of Stakeholders, which is comprised of representatives from different sectors in the food industry.
FSSC 22000 was developed for the certification of food safety systems through a rigorous process of managing food safety risks and providing safe products for the food industry. It guarantees the safety of products during primary production of animal products, products with a shelf life, manufacture of perishable animal or vegetable products, and other food ingredients such as additives, vitamins and bio-cultures, the production of animal food and feed, and food manufacturing which include catering, retail/wholesale and transport and storage services.

If you start on your certification now, you can stay competitive and remain qualified to keep working with your current customers. But if you don’t, you may lose them.
Many large retailers and multinational manufacturers now demand FSSC certification of their suppliers. An FSSC Certification means you have become qualified to supply these organization or their suppliers, helping to open your products to a larger market.

GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) guidelines are established by the Food and Drug Administration to assist food manufacturers in the production of unadulterated products. Under a Silliker Food Safety / GMP audit, companies must comply with recognized standards in their overall programs and execution related to their grounds, building and equipments. Good Manufacturing Practices are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures, and documentation to assure the product produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality, and purity that it is represented to possess.
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP, also referred to as 'cGMP' or 'current Good Manufacturing Practice') is the aspect of quality assurance that ensures that medicinal products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate to their intended use and as required by the product specification. GMP refers to the Good Manufacturing Practice Regulations promulgated by the US Food and Drug Administration. These regulations, which have the force of law. If a manufacturer decides not to upgrade an entire facility to meet the new GMP requirements, it may transfer certain manufacturing technologies to manufacturers that are already certified with new GMP.
